Trakrat® Railway Trolley / Dolly Products
The LT1250AL and LT1500AL Trakrat® Modular Link Trolleys have been designed as an alternative to single piece units.
It is necessary for railways worldwide to be inspected and maintained regularly. Bison Products have designed and developed a unique “five piece” modular rail trolley system which consists of one deck, two bogies, one push bar and one brake handle, to aid in the transportation of tools and equipment on track.
Traditional trolleys similar to the Trakrat® can often prove heavy and cumbersome. The Trakrat® trolley or dollies as sometimes referred to in the USA, are unique in that it comprises of three main components all of which are detachable ticking the boxes in terms of safety, manual handling, reliability, maintenance and storage.
When contractors perform general maintenance duties on track, access to sites can often be restricted. The Trakrat® was designed and developed with this in mind; all but one of the components can be carried by a single man to the relevant position on track. Not only are the Trakrat® trolleys easy to operate and handle the modular design allows them to be transported and stored more efficiently.
The Trakrat® trolleys are fitted with a failsafe breaking mechanism which consists of a disc brake configuration to increases efficiency and reduces wheel damage and degradation. The bogie brakes are permanently applied until the operator engages to deploy. Consequently, if the operator was to lose control for whatever reason they are safe in the knowledge the trolley brakes will automatically engage.

Note: The trolleys have been tested for their carrying load with the LT1250 labelled at SWL 1250Kg and the LT1500 labelled at SWL 1500Kg and as standard we will always label the trolleys according to their tested and approved weights, but local codes of practice may rule that the labelling must be as dictated by their code of practice and we are duty bound to adhere to these instructions.
Insulated bogies must not be used on Networkrail track and non-insulated bogies must not be used on Lul (London Underground) track. We as a manufacturer have no control over this ruling, it is governed by the appropriate rail authorities. For additional identification purposes we have added labels to the bogies to identify which track they are to be used on. Bison Products Ltd cannot control the product selection, it is the responsibility of the user to ensure that they have the correct specification of Bogie / Trolley for the track.
