Nordco Inc.: SS Spiker

Nordco Inc.

The Nordco SS Spiker is an ideal spike driving solution for contractors and short-line railroads, the company says, adding that the hydraulic reciprocating hammer coupled with the tie nipper provides fast spike-driving action. The manual hydraulic controls are designed to improve reliability and simplify operation and troubleshooting. The compact size and reduced weight of the machine facilitates easy loading and unloading, the company says. The SS Spiker features a modular, open design for ease of maintenance. It can be equipped with a gauger that contacts the rail web, increasing productivity through minimized component movement, the company says. Nordco offers a complete selection of service parts and repair and upgrade kits for all of its MOW machines.
