Zephir – Crab 2100 E / 3100 E Electric Railcar Mover


Zephir Crab 2100 E / 3100 E Electric Railcar Mover


The Zephir CRAB 2100 E and CRAB 3100 E both rely on electric powered batteries to operate, making them perfect solutions for indoor facilities such as factories, railway workshops and storehouses. The tight turning radius and compact design of these units make them ideal for applications with narrow corridors and railway rolling stock.

With an onboard cab and the ability to be controlled remotely, the 2100 E and 3100 E are extremely versatile units. The rail-to-road capabilities and long runtimes that Zephir is known for is apparent in the design and build of these Locotractors.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of these mobile railcar movers, though, is their towing capacity. At 5.2 tons, the 2100 E has a maximum towing capacity of 520 tons. The 3100 E, while a bit heaver at 6.6 tons, tops out at a towing capacity of 730 tons.

Both Zephir models can be customized to fit the needs of the customer and have a wide variety of interchangeable hooks, couplers and tow bars available.
