Mining & Construction
Traditionally used for mining applications but increasingly specified for construction, a trolley locomotive is an electric machine which operates from an overhead conductor or electrified third rail. Clayton Equipment have the most comprehensive range of trolley locomotives available on the market, ranging from 4 tonnes to 40 tonnes in weight. With various motors, controller, power pickup and locomotive design options, our solutions are tailored to suit your application.
We are also able to design specially adapted trolley locomotives which are fitted with a traction battery. These hybrid versatile machines work predominantly on the trolley wire, but in development areas are able to travel using power from the traction battery. Current collection for each locomotive can be changed to suit the application, the favoured method being a Clayton single arm pantograph which is available with either an electric actuator or pneumatic cylinder. A simple trolley pole design for more basic applications is also offered.
Versatile, adaptable and innovative electric locomotives
As with all of our equipment we are able to configure your trolley machine for radio remote control to enable operation from the trackside. Full automation is also available should your operational requirements benefit from this technology.
Our equipment can also be specified to work in tandem so that two locomotives can be operated by one driver from a single cabin.
The quality of our products is always ensured and incorporated by design, we understand the rigours of a mining or construction application and design our equipment accordingly. Clayton manufacture the safest locomotives available in the industry, with a safety record that is second to none.
Clients are assured that they are fully compliant with both statutory and regulatory obligations when they purchase our equipment, as we ensure that our products not only meet, but exceed the legislative requirements that are in force in their territory of use.
