K and G Machinery has been manufacturing C.O.C.K.S. de-clipping trollies for the last three years. During this time, we have developed what we believe is the best and safest trolley to remove Pandrol ‘e’ clips in Australia.

Our de-clipping trollies are fully adjustable to suit rail size and wear. We can manufacture them to suit various track gauges and also specific couplings to suit customer requirements, whether it be a hi-rail excavator or pettibone.

Reasons to Choose a Declipping Trolley for Your Re-railing Project

This is by far the safest way of removing ‘e’ clips without endangering workers of any injuries. The clips strike the rubber shrouds and fall within the working area of the trolley.

The trolley can be set to remove the clips from either one rail or both with great speed. It is just a matter of travelling the machine with the trolley over the re-railing area in both directions to safely remove all of the clips

This trolley can be adjusted to suit different rail sections and different rail head wear, making it ideal for heavy haul tracks that carry out continuous rail grinding.

Only one machine, one trolley and one operator are needed to remove kilometres of clips.

What Are Pandrol ‘E’ Clips?

Pandrol ‘e’ clip systems are used in most countries around the world and are standard in a variety of railway systems, including heavy haul, freight, passenger, metro and light rail.

Why Should You Choose our Declipping Trolley?

Declipping trolleys are specialised accessories made just for removing Pandrol ‘e’ clips in large quantities safely and at speed

Choose K and G Machinery’s C.O.C.K.S. de-clipping trolley for your next re-railing project and benefit from all of the features our trolley has.

It features fully adjustable de-clipping arms made of Bisaloy, a rubber shroud that adjusts with the machine to maintain its height ensuring the clips are caught, an excavator type hitch to suit hi-rail excavators fitted with engcon tilt-rotators or a hitch to suit the knuckle boom of hi-rail pettibones, and heavy-duty springs to maintain the down pressure tension whilst removing clips.

Overall, the entire de-clipper trolley is adjustable to suit both smaller and larger rail sections as required.

The C.O.C.K.S. trolley can be lifted and loaded by forklift, using the fork tubes, or by any machine with a lifting hook with four-leg chain utilising the four lifting points.

All in all, it can remove the clips from both legs of a railing at the same time in one direction, or it can do one rail at a time as required
