For over 20 years, railways have relied on the Brandt Power Unit to provide the mobility and versatility they need, and we are now proud to introduce the newest and most advanced Power Unit yet, the R4.
The all new R4 supplies you with the power you need to get your job done quickly and efficiently. With up to 600 hp and 50,000 lbs of tractive effort (without additional weight added to the deck) the R4 can pull heavier loads up steeper grades, at higher speeds without losing traction.
Able to use both rail and road infrastructure, the Power Unit gets you to the jobsite quickly, minimizing track time and reducing the overall cost to do the work. Easily converted between road and rail in less than three minutes, the R4 is ready to go when and where needed.
Designed with many productive options, the R4 excels at a wide variety of jobs, filling needs in the Maintenance of Way field, Revenue Service and Emergency Response.
Add On Features - like the OTM Tracker or Tie Crane let you handle rail, tie and plate distribution, as well as dumping and pulling cars.
When it comes to rail equipment, safety is the most important quality. With that in mind, we designed the R4 with multiple features to ensure the operator is working in a safe and secure environment.
