The "Bully" Plug Door Boxcar Opener is designed to open boxcar plug doors without the danger of physical stress to the operator. The "Bully" Plug Door Boxcar Opener can be operated from the seat of a fork truck/lift. The "Bully" can also be adapted to be run from many other types of fork devices.
The "Bully" Plug Door Boxcar Opener is operated with 2 each 12-volt batteries which operate a hydraulic pump. The hydraulic pump in turn operates a small motor that turns the spindles that engage the railcar plug door. The arms of the "Bully" are set at 8 rpm which opens the boxcar plug door...with adjustability for different needs and requirements.
Since the power arm is self-adjusting, the fork lift (device) will not have to be moved as the boxcar plug door opens. If you are using a forklift, you can next use one of the extended side arms to push the boxcar plug door open.

Maintenance on the Bully is limited to checking the fluids on the hydraulic system and the batteries. You can use standard hydraulic fluid used in your other equipment should you need to add fluid.
