Since 50 years, Zephir is the European leader in the rail-road shunting LOCOTRACTORS and industrial towing tractors, thanks to the largest range of vehicles having the best performances in the world.
Nowadays Zephir production includes the Locotractors LOK, CRAB, KUBO and LOKOM and several models of industrial towing tractors.
LOK range is based on 11 models, covering equivalent locomotives weights from 10 tons up to 100 tons and train weights from 600 tons up to 6000 tons.
The Locotractor can be on and off-tracked in most areas in one quick and easy manoeuvre. Therefore, it can cross tracks to perform cross terminal movements quickly and efficiently.
Extensive trials performed by our valued customers resulted in saving more than 50% of the total cost of the equivalent standard locomotive.
LOKOM range is a rail dedicated vehicle and is able to replace small size shunting locomotives having a weight up to 40/50 tons.
This range is manufactured in two different versions: one with steel-wheels allowing higher speeds, and the other one with steel-wheels with replaceable rubber friction bands which allow higher tows at lower speeds.
