The hydraulic cylinders allow the Rail Foot Thimble to securely grip the base of the rail section to accurately guide it into place.

Rail cannot be released from the Rail Foot Thimble without first lowering it - a unique safety feature in rail threading devices.

Rollers are case hardened for long working life.
