The Hydrema 912GS Rail is a highly efficient and versatile dump truck specifically designed for railway work. This machine is a turnkey solution, ready to deliver performance, stability and operator comfort - key factors for efficiency in railway network work. With flexible rail modules, compact dimensions and impressive load capacity, the 912GS Rail is designed for stability, even when working on inclined tracks and when emptying over the side. This is achieved with the MultiTip function that allows precise unloading within a 180° range.


With two operating modes, the 912GS Rail can operate in both high rail (9B) and low rail (9C) mode, ensuring maximum traction and gentleness on track equipment. Safety features include an automatic hydraulic lock for the articulated steering to minimize the risk of derailment, as well as automatic locking of the pendulum movement in the articulated joint for maximum stability. The 912GS Rail can easily be converted back to a regular dump truck within hours, as the rail modules can be easily removed.

Equipped with standard equipment such as category 9B/9C rail system, disc brakes, special rail keypad for operation, and cameras for accurate track positioning, this machine offers a robust and efficient solution for rail construction and maintenance, demonstrating Hydrema's commitment to flexibility, safety and high performance.


The Hydrema 912GS Rail's robust design includes a central articulated pivot and hydraulic stabilisers for optimal stability. The innovative MultiTip system allows 180-degree tipping, and with removable rail wheels, it can be quickly adapted for both rail and road use. The integration of fuel and hydraulic tanks improves weight distribution, making the 912GS Rail ideal for various railway work.


The chassis of the Hydrema 912GS Rail features an innovative design with a central articulated pivot point, which is supported by a pendulum rod and dual-acting hydraulic stabilisers. This provides exceptional stability when travelling and tipping. The chassis design also ensures that the oscillating movement of the articulated joint is automatically locked when travelling on rails, further improving safety and handling. With integrated fuel and hydraulic tanks in the front chassis, the chassis is optimized to deliver even weight distribution, which is essential for both efficiency and safety in complex working conditions.


The Hydrema 912GS Rails axle system is engineered with advanced technology to maximize both performance and safety. The front axle is equipped with an electro-hydraulic suspension system consisting of two independent suspension cylinders, ensuring a smooth and comfortable driving experience. The axles are equipped with planetary reduction in the wheel hubs, which work together with separate oil chambers to ensure a constant and efficient power transmission. An automatic limited slip differential lock on the front axle and an electro-hydraulic 100% differential lock on the rear axle are integrated to offer optimal traction and stability in all working conditions.


The Hydrema 912GS Rail is equipped with a powerful Cummins QSB 4.5L Stage 4 engine, which delivers a robust performance with a maximum of 147 horsepower (108 kW) at 2000 rpm and an impressive maximum torque of 600 Nm at 1500 rpm. This 16-valve Common-Rail Turbodiesel engine includes advanced features such as an electronically variable turbocharger, intercooler, and a cooled EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) with DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst) and SCR catalysts to ensure efficiency and compliance with emissions standards, while supporting AdBlue addition for cleaner exhaust.


This rail dumper is equipped with a large 36.9 gallon fuel tank and a 3.6 gallon AdBlue tank, ensuring long runtime and efficiency on the jobsite. The integration of these tanks into the front of the chassis contributes to optimal weight distribution, which improves the vehicle's balance and stability during operation.


The 912GS Rail is equipped with a ZF WG 115 6-speed fully automatic "ERGO POWER" Soft-Shift transmission that offers 100% electronic control. This advanced transmission ensures smooth gear changes without interrupting traction, which is essential for precise maneuvering and efficiency during rail work. With six forward gears and three reverse gears combined with constant 4-wheel drive, the 912GS Rail delivers reliable and smooth performance on both rail and road, making it an ideal machine for a variety of applications.


The Hydrema 912GS Rail comes with an advanced hydrostatic Load Sensing articulated steering system, which is equipped with two dual-acting cylinders. This steering technology allows precise and responsive control of the machine, with a maximum steering angle of +/- 35 degrees. A built-in priority valve and integrated emergency steering ensure that the operator is in full control even in demanding conditions. This steering system is designed to provide smooth and efficient maneuvering, which is critical for safe and precise positioning of the machine on railway tracks and construction sites.


Equipped with a high-performance hydraulic system, the 912GS Rail delivers a pump output of 22.1 gallons per minute with priority control. The system includes a separate pump dedicated to brakes and stabilisers, ensuring that machine movements are both precise and reliable. This setup gives the operator excellent control over the dump truck's functions, which is essential for efficient and safe working in all conditions.


The cab of the Hydrema 912GS Rail is spacious and designed with operator comfort and safety in mind. It is ROPS/FOPS approved, ensuring protection against tipping and falling objects. With a suspended cab and either a mechanical or air suspension driver's seat, it provides a comfortable driving experience even during long working days. Steering is further enhanced with a tilt steering wheel that offers customized ergonomics and better control. This combination of safety and comfort allows the operator to work efficiently and with less fatigue.


The dump body of the Hydrema 912GS Rail is not only robust and spacious, but it can also handle a significant amount of material with a payload of 10 tons. This capacity, combined with its 7.3 cubic yards body made from high-strength steel, ensures that the machine can transport large amounts of material efficiently and safely. The dump body can optionally be fitted with a height stop at 14’1.2” or 14’9.1” ft in, providing additional safety against hitting e.g. overhead wires during tipping.


The MultiTip feature on the Hydrema 912GS Rail adds a significant level of versatility and efficiency to the dumper's operations. This feature allows for precise and fast unloading of materials in a 180-degree radius, meaning the operator can unload the load backwards and to both sides. This is made possible through a compact swivelling system that is mounted in a heavy-duty slewing ball bearing and controlled by two dual-acting cylinders. This innovative solution gives the 912GS Rail an added advantage in work situations where space is limited or precise positioning of materials is required, increasing efficiency and significantly reducing labor time.


Safety is a top priority in the design of the Hydrema 912GS Rail. The machine is equipped with advanced safety features, including two cameras that point directly at the rail wheels. These cameras help the operator precisely position the dump truck on the rails via in-cab monitors. In addition, it offers a manual emergency pump for emergencies. Safety is ensured with automatic locking of the steering in the articulated joint during rail travel, minimizing the risk of derailment. These safety features ensure that the 912GS Rail can operate efficiently and safely, both on rails and off-road, protecting the operator in all working conditions.
