The wheel drop system is used to remove and/or replace wheelsets in workshops with pit tracks and elevated tracks.
The lifting system features telescopic lifting cylinders or a scissor lifting arrangement. The wheelset drop is powered and can be moved along a crossing track or parallel to the elevated track.
Each rail has movable rail bridges to permit the unrestricted lowering of a wheelset.
The vehicle body is held by body support while a wheelset is removed and lowered into the work pit.
