Compact Lift Used to Service Passenger Train Cars

Amtrak becomes a repeat customer of Autoquip and purchases addtional American Compact Lifts for servicing inside their passenger train cars.

The Challenge

Amtrak needs the ability to lift and support heavy components for the servicing of their interior train cars. The lifts need to be portable and narrow enough to fit through the bulkhead door or even required access through a train car window. The lift also needs to be self-powered due to power source limitations on board. Lastly, the lift has to be able to carry tools for the service workers to access during repairs or maintenance.

The Autoquip Solution

Autoquip equipped the American Compact Lift with all the solutions requested by Amtrak. The compact lift is narrowly built to fit through the bulkhead and train window and can be accessed with a fork lift operation through the attached casters which make this an easy application. The lift also includes a battery powered hydraulic power unit with its own on board battery charger and compartment shelving for carrying and accessing tools.

Solution Benefits

Amtrak as a repeat customer knew that Autoquip would be able to provide them with the same quality product and guaranteed satisfaction as they had experienced before and keep their business right on track.
