RPI - Ride-On Plate Inserter Use your smartphone to scan this code for more information. Key Features Save on personnel costs The RPI - Ride-On Plate Inserter includes the following key features: • Single-operator (with two jump seats), climatecontrolled, enclosed cab; extended cab option available Are you currently using several crew members to walk alongside a rail lifter machine and insert/position tie plates? With the RPI, the rail is lifted and the tie plates on both sides of the rail are simultaneously inserted and positioned - all by a single operator. • Two heavy-duty plate inserting head assemblies over each rail Single- or dual-rail operation • Fully adjustable workhead to adapt to different rail and plate heights Single- or dual-rail operating modes make the RPI appropriate for use by both rail and tie gangs. • Cab-controlled power lockups • Integrated guide rollers for stability during plate insertion High productivity • John Deere four-cylinder, four-stroke diesel engine The RPI can handle a plate insertion production pace of up to 10 ties per minute. • Four-wheel, dual-axle, chain-driven propulsion system • Spring-applied, hydraulic-released brakes, with Cobra brake shoes • 24 VDC, circuit breaker-protected, electrical system • Integrated, positive locking, rail-to-rail turntable • Single, pressure-compensated hydraulic pump Select between automatic or manual modes Use the one-button automatic mode to automatically insert tie plates at pre-set rail and plate heights or, when necessary, switch to manual mode to precisely move the workhead to the desired height/location. • Joystick controls One-button homing Easily adjust the workhead to adapt to different rail and plate heights. After one set of tie plates is inserted, the one-button homing feature lowers the rail, retracts the plate fingers, and positions the finger assembly - automatically setting up the workhead for the next tie. Increased operator visibility An on-board camera and display provides additional visibility of the workhead region, as well as the surrounding area. In addition, the in-cab console notifies the operator of the plate insertion status. Quickly adjust to different working conditions Make simple workhead adjustments to handle different rail heights, plate lengths, ballast conditions, as well as curved track. In addition, an integrated turntable allows the RPI to easily reverse direction on the track. An on-board camera/display allows the operator to clearly see the workhead area. Ad-hoc rail height adjustments Ask us about... The Rail Bump-Up feature allows for quick, ad-hoc rail height changes for a single plate insertion. Rebuild Programs Use fewer personnel carriers Optional photo, diagram, The optional extended cab allows up to seven extra crew chart or screencapture members (total capacity = 8) to ride in the cab. Fewer [Maymean be moved and/or to resized] personnel carriers less equipment maintain and less space needed on sidings for overnight storage.
