Up to five adjacent sleepers can be laid simultaneously from an accompanying supply. Lifted into position, their correct placement are ensured by a precision gauging hydraulic system that spreads the sleepers to the desired distance up to maximum 765 mm (30in).
A major benefit of SL550 is that the sleepers do not move sideways when the grab is released and also that it is possible to pick up the sleepers straight from the ground.
The Sleeper Layer SL550 can also be used to gather sleepers for storage in case they do not lie close to each other. Meticulously developed, extensively tested and utilised with high productivity and excellent results in alignment, spacing, and positioning. The Sleeper Layer SL550 is CE-certified.
