Highly flexible and efficient construction machines and equipment in railway and track construction

Railway Construction

When it comes to track construction, precision and speed are vital. Work on the track should be done quickly and efficiently. Rails, ties and railroad ballast must not only be laid accurately, but also maintained and replaced regularly. At the end of the day, the rails are the basis for our rail traffic and are constantly exposed to stresses.

Wacker Neuson distinguishes itself here as a reliable and professional partner for track construction: Its product range reaches from gasoline hammers specially designed for track construction, lighting systems with matching generators for night construction sites and vibratory plates to small excavators, wheel loaders and crawler-mounted dumpers, which efficiently support all work on the track with proven durability and robustness.

Wacker Neuson 8003 railway

Two-way excavator for flexible use on track systems

By means of an intelligent plug-in solution, an intelligent rail travel mechanism can be mounted on the time-tested and proven 8003 compact excavator, which can be controlled without performance loss via the excavator's hydraulic circuit. 

The two-way excavator 8003 railway is well-suited to a variety of tasks in the rail sector, for example, slope and shoulder work or the maintenance of track systems.

The chain drive guarantees optimal off-road capability next to the track and can be employed flexibly, thanks to its compact dimensions and high stability.

Railroad construction specialists

Wacker Neuson's gasoline hammers are perfectly suited for applications in the field of railroad construction - particularly in the case of railroad network maintenance. Only a gentle force should be applied when tamping ballast, as the gravel may not be damaged during the tamping procedure. A certain number of blows is nevertheless required to achieve a perfect compaction of the ballast. Have a look here to see how well this can be achieved with Wacker Neuson's gasoline hammer.
