McCulloch Panel Lifter
The patented McCulloch Panel Lifter is a unique system that removes and replaces rail panels swiftly and safely.
Using remote control technology, the Panel Lifter creates an instant exclusion zone which eliminates any handling issues and keeps your team safe while panels are removed and replaced. The speed at which it works makes it a more efficient and faster process, an important element to consider on projects with limited possession timescales.
This system has been used successfully in the UK for over 10 years and is arguably the most efficient system (from a cost and time perspective) for removing and replacing rail panels in the UK. It’s fully certified for use across the Rail Network.
