Our latest design gives us the ability to put your tie plates at any location with any orientation that suits the needs you have with one machine. Tie plates can be dropped on every tie, every tie and cribbing, or even 2 plates per tie. Tie plates can be laid off the head of the tie, on the head of the tie, inside the gauge to either side, or in the center of the gauge. Tie plates can be laid parallel or perpendicular to the rail. We can lay the tie plates right side up or upside down. Should you have a preference to drop the tie plate high side or low side, in or out we can accomplish that also.
