NORRIS has been engineering and designing rail cranes for the scrap and steel industries since 1989 utilizing various hydraulic upper structures to give our customers the versatility of a hydraulic material handler mounted on a custom, heavy-duty, self-propelled rail carrier. With our innovative, self-adjusting disc brake system coupled with our extreme-duty steel structure locomotive car body and our patent pending hydraulic outrigger system, our rail cranes are built STRONGER and TOUGHER than the typical American Ohio car body.
