Adjusting the ballast

Adjusting the ballast includes not only a part of the final product, but also changes GPK. These works are performed independently by a ballast plow, or in combination with a two-way excavator.

At the moment the company Hrochostroj  has a ballast plow SSP 100 at its disposal, intended to adjust the ballast to a profile for the track and switching points. It is equipped with side-hinged blades, adjustable blades in the middle of the plow  and in the rear is sweeping equipment. Deutsche Plasser is the  manufacturer. Transportation is ensured by its own power, locomotive-hauled, or in conjunction with a machine cleaner ZRM 79 and car MFS 40.
