The GO-E2 uses a 5-HP motor to generate a constant speed of 34-RPM and a power output of 2,000 ft-lb during surge and 875 ft-lb during operation.

The GO-E2 is an electric-powered Railcar Gate Opener with a rotating platform (for a full 360° swivel) on a rolling carriage (to mount to secured-to-ground W-beam), utilizing pendant controlled, instant Forward-Reverse action, and a telescoping drive shaft with both vertical and horizontal adjustment (to follow traveling gate; accommodate varied height capstans).

The GO-E2 Railcar Gate Opener is well suited for worksites that experience:

  • Railcars that vary from easy-to-open to moderately-difficult because they are well maintained and regularly repaired;
  • Hopper cars with either fixed position or traveling gate mechanisms;
  • Limited or no compressed air supply;
  • Railcars with varied height capstan / gate mechanisms;
  • Rough or uneven trackside terrain making opener maneuverability an issue.
GO-E2 Railcar Gate Opener Features

Rotating Platform on Rolling Carriage

180° pivot enables opening hopper car gates on parallel tracks, and a 90° pivot enables safe, out-of-the-way drive shaft protection when not in use. The Rolling Carriage locates and locks-down the Opener directly opposite every gate, anywhere along the unloading site.

Heavy-Duty Telescoping Drive Shaft (TDS)

Telescopes 48″ to 80.5″ (longer lengths available) and angles 50° vertical and horizontal to accommodate both traveling gate mechanisms and varied height gates.

Capstan Drive Fitting

Precision machined, 4140 tool steel, 1-piece step-tapered drive tip 1-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ sq shank using HD set-screw retainer will last through hundreds of gate openings.

Pendant Control Motor Starter

Pushbutton control up to 20′ from railcar gate enables instantaneous forward/reverse job of gear motor to rock-open even stubborn gates.

1-Worker Positioning & Operation

Enables greater productivity and reduced man power planning.

Easy-Lift, Manual Height Adjustment

Easily compensates for differing height gates, or variations in unloading site docks or platforms.

Inverter Duty 5-HP Motor

Provides low noise, low maintenance, and high durability. Manufactured to AGMA Class 3 standards allows 275% momentary overload capacity.

Economical to Purchase

Meets even the tightest budget when an electric powered Gate Opener is required.

Operates at 66dBA

Accommodates noise restrictions at plant and unloading site operations.
