CarTopper® Material Handling Services

Safe, efficient method for material handling

Self-Propelled Material Handling Machine

The versatile CarTopper® Material Handling Services machine self-mounts from the ground to an operational position on top of the rail cars. After the job is complete, it dismounts without assistance.

The machine moves from car to car, loading or unloading materials within the right-of-way (ROW) as the work train moves along the track.

Making unloading safer and quicker

Herzog developed and built the first CarTopper after identifying a need for a more efficient and safer method of loading and unloading crossties from railcars that requires only one operator while reducing the need for ground personnel.
