BTE’s Hi-Rail Excavators a Hit at ARRC
QMP Ltd. Account Manager Dave Dockman exhibited at the recent Atlantic Region Railway Conference in Moncton, New-Brunswick. The event drew representatives from eastern Canada and the Maritime Region. Dockman displayed some of QMP’s specialties, including the Airtec gas powered Master 35 Impact Wrench and an array of BTI products, but he said most people were interested in the BTE line-up of hi-rail excavators. “It was a very successful event,” he said.

The BTE 318 Hi-Rail Wheeled Excavator
The BTE 318 Hi-Railed Wheeled Excavator recently was tested by Applus+, one of the world’s leading testing, inspection, and certification companies. Structural engineers performed load tests on the 318, verifying lift capacities and supplying a certified load chart for the machine. The lift test was done on several points around the 360 cab rotation using the Tie Grapple and slings to lift large concrete blocks, with a load test cell in between the load and boom.
The machine performed as expected with a reasonable drop in capacity on hi-rail over the side vs. on rubber wheels. That drop is expected, but the machine still has a high load capacity, says Ballast Tools Account Manager Rick Hill. The BTE-318 is purpose-built for MOW needs with higher productivity, greater versatility, and increased capabilities. Offering the most complete selection of attachments designed specifically to maximize its capabilities, the 318 can handle just about every job involved in track maintenance and new construction faster and more efficiently than anything else in its class. The BTE-318 is available for lease or sale. Contact us today!
