Anticipating the global movement towards solutions that preserve the environment, improve the comfort of workers and minimize negative impact on the neighborhood, Geismar proposes a new global approach towards a sustainable railway world “the sustainable way to rail” which consolidates all its innovative electrically-powered solutions under the name Activion systems.
The modular sleeper changer is an excavator attachment with which it is possible to perform sleepers renewal on rail tracks by means of the PA2T rotary grab, as well as ballast bed clearing and ballast renewal with the OLD blade and the ballast bucket, without exchanging attachment
The module is powered hydraulically by a road-rail loader, whose jib takes over the positioning of the attachment
All movements are controlled directly by the operator from the cabin seat of the road-rail loader
