Sweeping

The sweeping unit is positioned in such a way that it performs the last work process, leaving behind a perfect track surface.

As the permanent way regulations place precise demands on ballasting and the conditions differ in tracks and turnouts, the sweeper units are equipped with a variety of sweeper brush elements.

The rotating sweeper brushes are powered hydrostatically, with optimum turning capacity, high torque and infinite speed adjustment. A quick-exchange system allows fast conversion of the brush shaft at short notice. This enables you to react quickly to different types of sleeper.

Larger machines can be equipped with two sweeper units. The front sweeper unit is usually equipped with solid rubber sweeper elements to achieve a higher output and a rough treatment of the surface. The second sweeper unit is equipped with hose elements and carries out the fine work.
