Kershaw Skytrim 75 G2


Progress Rail’s Maintenance-of-Way (MOW) division was born out of the movement toward mechanization in the railroad industry and introduced the first Kershaw Ballast Regulator in 1945.

Today, Progress Rail supplies Kershaw MOW equipment, providing machines to all Class I railroads, transit and short lines and contractors around the world.

Our Kershaw SkyTrim 75 G2 is a rough terrain, rubber-tired vehicle with telescoping boom and a saw-type cutter head designed to effectively slice through trees.
