Vancer was founded to engineer, build and distribute quality, innovative and safe maintenance-of-way (MOW) equipment for the railroad industry in the United States. From October 2018, they are a new dealer and service provider to Huddig for the US Railroad segment.
In conjunction with the Svenska Maskinmässan exhibition in Solvalla, Stockholm, Sweden the first prototype and premiere of Huddig's unique full hybrid, HUDDIG TIGON, was released. The machine attracted a lot of attention at the fair and there is great interest in general about the new machine. There was an opportunity for people to register their interest in purchasing one of the pre-series machines, becoming the first in the world to own a full hybrid. Interest was so great that there are currently more people registered than machines available. Huddig will therefore choose who the lucky two owners will be.
Owning a HUDDIG has long been a dream for Rikard Karlsson, who lives in Hälsingland, Sweden. The goal was to own a new HUDDIG 1260D before he turned 25 years old. Through hard and dedicated work, he managed in a short space of time to take his business to a level where he had the opportunity to make that dream come true. The day before his 25th birthday, he picked up his new machine from Huddig's retailer Staffare in Hudiksvall. This makes him one of Sweden's youngest HUDDIG 1260D owners, if not the youngest.
Since 1959 we´ve developed and built innovative machines that have changed the history. Machines designed for optimal performance, built for efficiency, flexibility and safety.
With experience, knowledge and craftsmanship we have built more than 10 000 units until this day. And this is just the beginning.
Extreme working conditions and deadlines are a constant part of working on railways.
This makes enormous demands on safety and efficiency.
The HUDDIG 1260D provides a system solution for railway track work that meets the highest regulatory requirements.
The HUDDIG 1260D gives you the ability to smoothly access and depart tracks, providing the greatest possible working efficiency – whether undertaking new construction or maintenance.
