Engine/Power Unit Lifting Beam
Railway Support Services are able to offer a power unit/engine lifting beam for hire.
The beam is available for hire on its own or with a set of lifting strops as a complete unit.
One of the sets of lifting strops we have available allow all Sulzer power units to be lifted, viz:
* Class 24, 25, 26 and 27;
* Class 33;
* Class 44, 45 and 46 ‘Peaks’;
* Class 47.
Along with the correct strops, power units from other locomotives, including 08, 20, 31, 37, 56 and 67, can be lifted.
Please note, that a crane will be required to be used for the power units lift. This can be arranged by the customer, alternatively Railway Support Services can arrange this on your behalf.

The lifting beam and strops have been certified for use and a copy of the test certificate will be made available prior to hire.
