Track liner / track leveller

Automotor engine with hydraulic control which fastly aligns the track and with precision without changing the ballast bed. With workability it requires only one operator, it can work during short traffic breaks because it is easy to be put on and out of the track and it is also easy to turn quickly upside down.

Besides it permits to lift the track for operations such as packing and needling of the track but also for replacement of the metallic rails without destroying the mould. It lifts the runners for the replacement of sole-plate or for the maintenance of the joints.
