Choice of the ideal design

Suitable technology is essential for achieving the best technical and commercial results.

Producing the ballast cross-section places high demands on modern ballast regulating machines.

  • prompt availability
  • high working speed – adapted to the output of the tamping machines or other high-capacity machines used
  • high sweeper output with perfect results
  • storage facility for ballast (optional)
  • continuous working action and thus exact re-profiling of the ballast cross-section in one working pass (depending on model)

The most important questions when selecting a machine

The decision, which ballast profiling machine best meets the given requirements, is based on some fundamental considerations:

  • Does distributing, profiling and sweeping have to be carried out in one pass?
  • Which tamping machine will it work with?
  • How high will the working speed be?
  • Should it be possible to work on turnouts?
  • Is extensive ballast management planned?


The design of the machine depends on the requirement profile drawn up. Parameters such as engine power, layout and variability of the ploughing equipment and sweeper unit as well as ballast storage options will depend on the machine model.

Our extensive range of equipment allows a selective and individual adaptation to all requirements. All machine models offer sturdy construction of the frame and the undercarriage as well as the use of hydraulic drive for the work units.

Spacious drive and work cabins, ergonomically designed operator’s desks with an ­excellent view onto the track and the ploughs make the machine operators’ work easier while increasing quality and speed.

Cabin ventilators with filter, air-conditioning units for a pleasant temperature inside the driver’s control desks and work cabins when outside temperatures are high and intercom systems help to considerably improve working conditions for machine operators.
