Harsco Rail: Prime Mover and Flat Car Ice Scraper
The UTV prime mover and third-rail scraper mounted on a standard flat car are designed to perform snow removal and contact rail de-icing as well as other maintenance-of-way functions. The diesel-powered prime mover has a fully enclosed cab for eight personnel and one operator; a crane; a hydraulic power unit; a hydraulically driven air compressor-generator set; and controls for the brake system on the flat car. The 9-foot snow plow mounted on the unit's front is hydraulically controlled from inside the cab. The prime mover has outriggers to stabilize the unit during crane operations.
