Freight Car Door Opener
Railcar Door Opener

Superior Engineering's Freight Car Door Opener, or Railcar Door Opener, can help you open those stubborn railcar doors that don't seem to budge no matter how much manual force you apply. The Freight Car Door Opener mounts directly to the forks of your forklift and relies on the applied resistance of the lift truck to force open the door. This unit extends and retracts so that you can bypass obstacles or barriers and operate within tightly confined spaces. The Railcar Door Opener has a clevis, chain, and hook that creates an extended reach, and Specially designed T-Handle locks secure the door opener to the forks of your lift truck. The Railcar Door Opener will be a universal fit for most forklifts and freight rail car handles, but adjustments in the design can be made to fit your application if required.

Jammed Door?
A railcar door can be frozen, rusted,
or jammed.  Just connect the chain and hook to the door handle and
drive forward.  The force of the lift
truck will easily open your door.
