CRAB Light Electric Shunt Vehicles

The Zephir CRAB range of light electric shunt vehicles are a versatile option for shunting rail rollingstock in workshop and depot settings. Able to swiftly transition on and off track, the CRAB’s small dimensions and tight turning radius make them able to traverse narrow aisles easily, while eliminating emissions and reducing noise.

1500E /1800E

Light Electric Shunt Vehicle

The smallest models in the CRAB range are still mighty, weighing just 4t yet able to shunt up to 360t. Their small size means they are able to navigate the tightest workshop spaces. 

On road, the CRAB 1500E and 1800E are steered with a tiller, similar to walkie stackers. On rail the vehicles are controlled by remote control.

2100E & 3100E

Light Electric Shunt Vehicle

The middle of the CRAB range, 2100 E and 3100 E these electric shunt vehicles offer a step up in performance over the 1500/1800E models. With towing capacity up to 730t these vehicles offer a great balance of shunting performance while still maintaining compact dimensions and great turning ability. 

The CRAB 2100E and 3100E come with an operator’s cabin, offering better flexibility to operate outdoors, and enhanced comfort for the operator. 

These models of rail shunting equipment are currently utilised at various locations within Australia as shunt and vehicle placers, locomotive shunting and in lieu of progression systems.

3200 & 4200 EVO

Light Electric Shunt Vehicle

A change in direction for the CRAB range, the 3200 and 4200 EVO electric shunt vehicles feature a side entry cabin. With rotating operator’s seat and 360-degree visibility the EVO models offer greater flexibility, safety and operator comfort for longer operations. 

The EVO models retain the on-road manoeuvrability of the other CRAB models but gaining greater performance in wet conditions. Along with the ability to rotate the operator seat to both rail directions, the EVO models allow for more flexible shunting operations.
