Ballast Undercutting

The rail-mounted units undercut the rail, removing the spent ballast to an adjacent engineering or Unimog train, allowing new ballast to be placed using Stobart's road-rail plant.

  • Quick, efficient and cost-effective: Reballasting can be carried out without removing the track, reducing possession times and returning the line to service quicker.
  • Compact and easily transported:  Stobart Rail's Undercutter units can be quickly and easily transported to the site on a lowloader, improving the rate at which it starts service.
  • Rapid results/high output: Working in conjunction with Stobart Rail's highly experienced team of operatives and the company's extensive road-rail capability, the Undercutter units can achieve exceptionally fast rates of ballast renewal.
  • Operates on all track categories: The units are deployable for work on any track category including third and fourth rail, overhead lines, through switches and crossings.
