The newly designed RM 85-750 ballast cleaning machine follows on the tracks of the successful RM 80 series. In its first construction projects, the machine has proven that it is perfectly prepared for this construction season.
Compared to the RM 80 series, the major benefit of the new machine model is the position of the work units on two separated vehicle parts. Thanks to its lowered axle loads, the machine is approved for line category C2. On these lines, the maximum permissible axle load is 20 t. The design solution for the drive engine - located on the front wagon - reduces the noise emitted in the working area and the work cabin. This makes it easier for the staff to communicate and improves their work situation.
The total excavation of the ballast material reached a depth of about 50 cm. The uniform cut of the subgrade formation is impressive.
If required, new ballast is supplied using the red chute located directly above the rear driver's cabin.
A new MFS 120 was operated directly in front of the machine.
