0505 Rail Gear for Ford RANGER
Available from Mitchell Equipment Corporation
The Rail Gear adapts to trucks for the purpose of traveling on the highway or railway. The Rail Gear is hydraulically raised and lowered by a single high flow hydraulic pump with hand pump. The Rail Gear utilizes Mitchell’s 4-Wheel Independent Flexiride® Suspension system that does not require adjustment for varying payloads up to the maximum gross vehicle weight of the truck. The Rail Gear comes standard with precision-machined forged 10-inch diameter rail wheels that can be upgraded to Mitchell’s composite rail wheels that reduce railhead noise up to 95%. The front and rear Rail Gear units are identical modular units. The rail Gear kits comes complete with mounting brackets, built-in de-rail skids, and steering wheel lock. The Rail Sweeps have a mechanical linkage the retrack within the rail gear approach angles.
The Rail Gear has a very good approach and departure angles and great ground clearance. The spare tire remains under the vehicle and the factory tow hitch remains in its factory
