The BTE-325 is an extremely productive combination of size, power, lift capacity, and maneuverability for a Hi-Rail excavator. The BTE-325 can be rapidly deployed on rail and easily jumps off-track for more versatility or to allow train traffic to pass. The exclusive BTE four-wheel drive Hi-Rail system provides power for on rail ditching and towing. The increased lifting capacity of the BTE-325 makes it a capable choice for handling

heavy loads or lifting track materials. The compact radius is crucial when working in tight areas.


When it is coupled with the BTE Undercutter, Mulcher,

Cold Air Blower, Rail Threader, Rototilt, and buckets, the

BTE-325 Hi-Rail Excavator makes an indispensable

track maintenance workhorse.  With its lifting capacity, the

BTE-325 can handle wood panels and other heavy loads.


With its speed, reach, mobility, and full suite of advanced attachments, the BTE-325 is the best solution for great equipment utilization in challenging conditions.
