Grabs for wagon (un)loading

Loading or unloading of wagons requires an adjusted grab design. Verstegen developed special grabs for this application.

Special grab for wagon unloading

In order to design the right grab for loading or unloading wagons it is important to know the inner dimensions of the wagons. When the grab is too wide it is of course impossible to enter the wagon, but a too narrow grab leaves too much material behind. The outer side of the Verstegen grab shells are straight and extra strengthened to withstand the frequent contact with the wagons.

Extreme strong shells

The grabs shells are completely made of Hardox steel to withstand high forces when the shells get in contact with the wagons.
