Technology Park

The machine cleans the surfaces of railway tracks, without lifting out the ballast. Dirt is transported into the tank through special, adjustable suction hoses. This is a tried and tested method for cleaning tramway tracks, especially at stops.

Functional Characteristics

  • Loosening of dirt by blowing on surface with high air pressure
  • Dirt is transported into the tank through special, adjustable suction hoses
  • Fast cleaning of tracks and highly soiled stop areas, especially tramway stops
  • High suction power
  • Road-rail vehicle
  • Fully electronic controls with camera monitoring
  • Optimum manoeuvrability
  • Environmentally friendly use
