Manufactured specifically for excavators weighing 10 to 15 tonnes, the Hy-Rail attachment offers stability and flexibility when working on rail tracks. All movement is controlled from the driver’s cabin, whilst the hydraulics work without additional swivel implements. The machine will have two modes of operation: lifted up with the rubber wheels in contact with the rail wheels, or lowered down onto the rail with the rubber wheels running on the rail with the rail wheels used as guide wheels.
The rail wheels are designed in accordance with UIC.
