Our URM 700-2 ballast cleaning machine is the core technology for turnout maintenance. This machine makes it possible to clean the ballast bed without removing the turnout. Moreover, it allows for continuous working progress. In addition, it cleans the ballast shoulders. The machine is also suited for maintaining large high-speed turnouts with movable-point frog. Another advantage is that sections of track at connecting tracks and between turnouts can be cleaned in one pass.
Thanks to the fast and independent installation and removal of the excavating unit, the URM 700-2 works cost-efficiently on short sections of track.
- Short set-up times
- No need to cut the rails, neither at the start nor at the end of work.
- No full track closures - the time required for ballast cleaning in turnouts is reduced significantly.
This is exactly what railway administrations require: fast, safe and high-quality ballast cleaning in turnouts without long track possessions.
