The hi-rail attachments from RAM Equipment feature a quick hitch and can be used with a tilt rotating head for maximum flexibility and manoeuvrabilty. These attachments are ideal for use with our 17 tonne Hitachi wheeled excavator.


The Bullant grab lifts and manoeuvres a range of objects including steel, or timer rail sleepers. The grab can also be used for the side insertion of sleepers.

Rubber pads are included for use with concrete sleepers which can be removed to suit individual user requirements and applications. Steel pads are also available as an option for wooden sleepers.


The platypus grab handles concrete sleepers with small 5T-8T machines. It features an inbuilt rubber pad to reduce damage on sleepers and incorporates a parallel jaw clamping movement.

Rail Threader

The rail threader grips under the head of the rail for lift while the hardened point allows the threader to slide under the rail, even through ballast.

The vertical and horizontal rollers provide low resistance support so the threader can slide along the rail, providing lift of the rail on or off the sleeper. This reduces manual handling and the OH&S issues related to moving heavy rail.


The ‘Tamping Head’ Ballast Compaction Unit efficiently compacts ballast following replacement of railway sleepers on railway networks. Four models are available to suit machines from a backhoe to large excavators.
