According to Martin Engineering, their air-powered railcar openers can open even the most stubborn hopper car gate. The adjustable base allows one worker to manoeuvre the wheeled cart through tight spaces, improving loading efficiency while reducing safety risks.

The height-adjustable unit can accommodate different car gate designs and variations in unloading platforms. Three pivoting pneumatic wheels allow the unit to maintain contact with the travelling capstan of rack and pinion gate openers, while stabilizers slide out to provide a wide base for increased leverage.
