The Battery-Operated Tool Revolution is Taking Over the Rail Industry

Life on a maintenance of way (MOW) crew is not an easy one. At times it can be gruelling – definitely not a job for the faint of heart.  For years and years, the jobs of MOW railroading crews have revolved around the use of hydraulic and gas-powered tools and the vehicles used to support them. When crews have a line of ties to work on for repairs, they must get out all the oversized, bulky hydraulic and/or gas tools and go through the excruciating process of transport and set-up, which takes hours and is frustrating and exhausting.

To this point, those hydraulic and gas-powered tools and vehicles have allowed railroaders to get by on the job, but at a cost:

  • Hydraulics and gases are dirty and toxic
  • They are dangerous for the environment and railroaders
  • Fuel disposal and transportation are expensive
  • The tools restrict railroaders’ range of motion
  • They make it nearly impossible to work in tight spaces like bridges and tunnels

They take forever to set up You can easily see why Focused Technology Solutions’ dual-use, battery-operated tools for railway emergency response are your best choice to solve most railway emergencies, anytime and anywhere. The Focused Technology Solutions’ battery-operated tool suite solves several major issues.

Since 2018, Focused TS has been developing battery-operated tools for maintenance of way crews to make their jobs and lives easier while minimising liability risks for railroads all around the globe.

Since Focused Technology’s tools are all battery-operated, there is no need for those large vehicles, dirty hydraulic fluids and oversized generators, eliminating setup time and making the job much easier for railroaders.
