Aspen Equipment has set a new standard for efficiency in Railroad Grapple Trucks with the Aspen Creep Drive system for rail use. With our simplified chassis-propelled creep drive, rail vehicle operators are able to maintain on-rail travel without having to leave their seat. Our multi-plex on-control handle creep drive system is the first in the industry to be compatible with the Eaton Ultra-Shift and Allison transmissions, allowing for speeds up to 19 mph in reverse. Our system eliminates the need for hydrostatic driven creep drive systems by communicating directly through OEM engine and transmission channels.
Aspen Creep Drive is engineered for maximum operator efficiency, superior reliability, and significant cost savings. Currently in use with multiple Class I railroads, the advanced safety features integrated into the Aspen Creep Drive system ensure that operator safety is top priority. With this creep drive system, Aspen Equipment has shifted the paradigm of the material handler specification into new territory.
