Hydraulic Shear Cutter

The RC 2000 mobile rail cutter is an attachment designed for the professionals, it allows a fast and effective cut of standard train and tramway rails. The RC 2000 substitute the traditional, expensive oxy-fuel cutting and allows to save time and money. The RC 2000 run at 260 bar oil pressure so it can be set also on rail converted operating machine. The attachment is equipped with a hydraulic 360° rotation. The cutting blades are four time reversible and interchangeable.

Vignol rails, flat bottom rails, which have a standard strength up to 900 N/ mm2 and a profile size S7 to UIC 60 can be cut. There are some very special hardened rails which we don’t recommend to be cut. The wear of the cutter blades depends on the quality of the rails. Cutting rails with a ordinary scrap shear cannot be recommended due to shattering debris!
