Macton designs and manufactures each Transfer Table to meet the specific capacity and length requirements the customer needs. A Transfer Table is a length of rail that traverses a locomotive or rail car to any number of parallel tracks. A single track (or more) can feed one end of the Transfer Table and the locomotive or rail car can continue on to many other tracks on the opposite end of the pit, possibly into a locomotive or rail car repair facility.
The amount of trucks and drives for the Transfer Table depend on the capacity and length required. These drives utilize variable speed motors for smooth start and stop functions, as well as quiet operation. Optional features include automatic wheel chocks, track alignment locking mechanisms, enclosed operator stations (cabs), multiple walkways, and more.

Standard 5 Year Warranty – The equipment is warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for a period of five (5) years from the date it’s shipped from Macton’s facility.

If required to trouble-shoot such equipment, Macton will provide the services of an onsite field service engineer, and if any such defects are found to exist, Macton will pay the labor and travel costs of such field service engineer.
