Rail Tongs

Downs Rail Tongs are ruggedly constructed and conservatively rated for railroad and construction use. They are designed for the quick handling of standard rail sections in all weights and sizes. The tongs are easily applied (by one man) over the head of the rail, for lifting with a hoist or crane. Where other than standard rails are involved, special tongs to suit will be supplied upon receipt of full specifications covering the rail to be handled.
