At the end of August, the Swedish contracting company Rosenqvist Entreprenad started a 10-week long sleeper replacement project in Sweden. 6000 sleepers on nine different tracks are to be replaced. Two units of the Pandrol sleeper changing attachment SB40 have been purchased for this project.
The SB40 is designed for use on 8-ton machines, to be light-weight and easy to operate. In this project, the SB40 units are used on two bigger machines, a Huddig and a Volvo EWR150E. The low weight and maneuverability on the SB40 are very much appreciated by the operators.
