Bogie Drop Tables
Whiting Lifting Equipment
Whiting pioneered the development of the drop table concept. Bogie and wheelset change outs are fast, easy, and efficient using a Whiting drop table. Whiting engineers take the time to listen and create a drop table system that fits your application. Like all Whiting Railcar Maintenance Equipment, all our bogie drop tables are built with reliability, safety, and ease of maintenance in mind.
Bogie drop tables are used to change out two and three axle bogies up to 250 tons. To remove drive wheels or bogies with a bogie drop table, the locomotive is located and supported over the tabletop, where the bogies (or wheelsets) are disconnected, lowered, transferred laterally and then raised to a release track. The bogies can then be moved to a maintenance area where inspection and repair can be performed quickly and efficiently.
