The Nordco RPI Ride-On Plate Inserter quickly and efficiently places tie plates. The RPI automatically lifts one or both rails. It then inserts and positions tie plates between the tie and rail. This self-propelled, single-operator machine can simultaneously insert two plates, one on each side of the rail. The RPI includes a fully enclosed, climate-controlled cab that is ergonomically designed for operator comfort and ease-of-operation. Automatic mode offers a one-button, complete insert cycle (lift rail/engage plate/insert plate). The one button homing feature lowers the rail, retracts the plate “fingers” and positions the finger assembly for the next tie.
