KINSHOFER Ballast Brush for Excavator SKBB

The characteristics of the ballast brush SKB-B:

The KINSHOFER SKB-B ballast brush is …

… the perfect excavator attachment for levelling and distributing ballast on existing railtracks. Cleaning the track after filling it up with ballast has never been easier without damaging rails or sleepers.  Ideal is the combination a tiltrotator for more maneuverability. The tool is also available for loaders. 
The differently sized brushes can be changed easily for different applications as the same frame can be used for different roller brushes. 
The two integrated hydraulic motors can make the brush run forwards or backwards. 

As an option, the frame can also be equipped with a synthetic brush for snow removal. 

Another option is the use of surrounding skirts to avoid unintended spreading of the ballast.

Ideal and for more flexibility also in combination with a NOX Tiltrotator.
