BTI Adzer Wheel Outlasts the Competition
Ballast Tools Incorporated takes pride in producing quality wear-proofed parts for maintenance of way equipment. One part that consistently performs better than the OEM is the BTI Carbide Adzer Wheel. Recently, a BTI Carbide Adzer Wheel on a class one railroad lasted four months, or about 64,000 feet! The rail engineers stated that the OEM part lasted only about a third of that time at best. BTI manufactures adzer wheels to fit Kershaw, Nordco, and Knox Kershaw machines. Get BTI On Board!

BTI Dual Spike Puller Surpasses OEM Performance
The Ballast Tools Inc. Dual Spike Puller for Nordco units has been in use for several years on several Class 1 railroads. Many operators prefer the dual to the single puller for various reasons, including ease of capture. The patented BTI Dual Spike Puller is so good, it pulls most of the spikes left by the competitive claws, making the machines more productive in the gang. The BTI Dual Spike Puller has consistently performed at a rate of 5 to 8 times the normal life of OEM spike claws. This particular spike puller is still running strong after five months of service.
