Cane Sugar Locomotive

Extensive rebuild of a 2-foot gauge sugar-cane locomotive incorporated a new Caterpillar drive-train, new suspension, revised braking system and reversing operator seat with arm-rest mounted controls allowing the operator to always face the direction of travel. The revised locomotive has a much greater fuel efficiency compared with the previous drive-train.

Loadquip can also rebuild 40-tonne sugar-cane locomotives using a Caterpillar C18 engine and mechanical transmission. Loadquip (in collaboration with CMP Engineers) also has the capacity to build new 18-tonne sugar-cane locomotives in a B-B configuration, with similar dimensions to a 24-tonnes locomotive.
