Functional Characteristics

  • Automatic traverse restrictors of the side ploughs prevent the standard track clearance envelope from being exceeded.
  • Quick brush shaft changing device
  • Two continuous axes as driving axes
  • Adequate absorption of vibrations and impacts is achieved through coil springs and shock absorbers and thus largely smooth running of the vehicle
  • Enclosed sound insulated spacious, driver and work cab at the rear of the machine
  • Two horizontally and vertically adjustable side ploughs in the front part of the machine
  • With grading-ploughing equipment for extremely heavy duty ballasting work – consisting of two plough halves travelling in the track direction that can be lowered independently of each other
  • Sweeping unit including a brush and a transverse conveyor belt for filling the intermediate spaces and diverting any surplus ballast onto the transverse conveyor belt.
  • The speed of the brush drive can be continuously adjusted up to max. 350 rpm
  • Ballast removal between the rail and rail fastenings by two rail fastening brushes behind the front axis
  • Equipped with automatic safety device and ATW/​ATS
