Top Quality Drop Tables Improve Your Workflow and Safety

Vector Lifting bogie drop tables are designed so that locomotive bogies, wheelsets, and traction motors can be serviced, or even replaced, as needed. Installed in a pit below rail level, the drop table consists of a trolley, lifting columns, lifting table, and traction motor positioner. The drop table supports and lifts/lowers the wheelset from under a locomotive, then traverses to a release track where the wheelset can be removed. Vector Lifting’s drop tables are efficient and compact, able to be positioned in their “home” positions, ensuring uninterrupted rail through the depot and an enclosed pit area. The drop table locks into this position to allow safe locomotive passage over the table. There is a traction motor positioner to support and tilt the traction motor for release or reconnection to the bogie. With the trolley, the lifting columns, and the traction motor, the wheelset can be removed or installed from underneath the locomotive. These drop tables optimise safety and efficiency in the depot, making fast locomotive service turnaround a reality.
