John Deere Gators have been modified by Harsco Track Technologies (who are better known for the supply of Permaquip equipment) to enable road rail operation. Each Gator is equipped with a hydraulic brake system enabling it to pull a load of 5,600Kg and is light enough to be transported to site on a plant trailer. Each Gator has a payload of 200Kg on rail.

Each Gator is equiped with a hydraulic turntable and ramps allowing it to be tracked and de-tracked on any level stretch of well ballasted track or preferably a rail access point or level crossing.

The drawbar capacity allows each Gator to pull either a pair of cable drum trailers, five personnel carriers (30 persons), three loaded flat flat trolleys, five 60′ rails or a mix, up to its maximum load of 5,600Kg.
