Case Study:

Volvo Penta rail and logistics solutions are powering the new Rail King RK460 mobile railcar mover. Rail King equipment is manufactured in Houston by Stewart & Stevenson. Railcar movers are highly specialized vehicles equipped with both heavy duty rubber tires and steel wheels for travelling on or off rail tracks. These heavy-duty versatile machines are used to move railcars around in railroad yards. Weighing in at over 45 tons and hailed as the largest steel mobile railcar mover in the world, the Rail King RK460 is powered by a Volvo Penta D8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine. 

“We selected the Volvo Penta D8 Tier 4 Final engine for the Rail King RK460 because of the power output, unmatched torque output at low RPMs and reduced fuel consumption, noise, and vibration,” said Rail King Product Line Manager James Lyon. “The new railcar application is a natural progression in the outstanding working relationship between Volvo Penta and Stewart & Stevenson,” said Darren Tasker, Vice President of Industrial Sales at Volvo Penta North America. “We are looking forward to Rail King operators experiencing the quality and efficiency of Volvo Penta products and building further on that excellent foundation for other new projects.” To read the full story please follow the Volvo Penta website link below.
