Railway workers can easily move railroad ties or sleepers with these carrying tongs. The jaws are adapted to the load as there are carrying tongs for road curbs, crucibles, railroad tracks, etc. The arms move away from each other so that they automatically clamp when the tool is lifted. These tongs are one of the few tongs that are handled by two people.
