The rail modules are mounted on a bolt-on system with quick couplings for the hydraulics. Hereby they can easily be de-mounted when not used for work on the rail.
Big rail wheels (with a diameter 450 mm at the front and 550 mm at the rear) ensure the position and driving stability of the dump truck on the tracks, even at high speeds.
Individual disk brakes are mounted in the hub of the rail wheels, so that both the service and parking brakes work directly on the rail wheels.
The 912GS can work in both high and low rail mode. In high rail mode, the tires are lifted 125 mm from the tracks. Hereby damage to track sensors and shifters are avoided as the rubber wheels are lifted entirely off the rail track.
A roller is pressed against the rear rubber tires, transferring the traction directly to the rail wheels.
In the low rail working mode, the rubber tires run directly onto the rail tracks, which maximizes the traction.
The position of the rail wheels is controlled by sensors, securing the correct load both on the rubber wheels and the rail wheels.
Driving onto and off the rail tracks is easy, thanks to the articulated steering system and the integrated cameras.
The articulated steering enables the operator to easily align the dump truck to the rail tracks, by simply turning the steering wheel. Meanwhile, the integrated cameras ensure the best possible view of the rail wheels, when lowered onto the tracks.
In addition to the rearview camera, two cameras are mounted in the front and rear end below the dump truck to monitor the rail wheels, giving the operator the perfect conditions to position the rail modules correctly on the rail tracks.
For safety reasons, the 912GS Rail dump truck has an automatic, hydraulic lock for the articulated steering equipped as standard. In this way, the front and rear chassis are locked together to keep the truck stiff and minimize the derailing risk. Engaging and disengaging the lock is carried out conveniently from the driver's seat.
When on the railroad tracks, the pivot point's oscillation is automatically locked, to have maximum stability.
In the event of an engine failure, the hydraulic functions can be operated using the emergency pump.
Furthermore, the brakes can manually be released, if needed.
The spacious cab offers a soft-touch interior with ergonomically placed instrumentation, while the seat and armrests are fully adjustable. An optional driver’s seat with ventilation and automatic weight adjustment can further enhance the comfort.
All operations can be carried out from the cab, easily controlled by logical keypad panels and the multifunctional joystick - integrated into the right armrest.
The front and rear rail modules are operated individually in order to achieve the maximum operator flexibility.
The engine is placed behind the front-facing cab, providing an unobstructed view both forward and to the sides. In combination with large side mirrors and the optional rear view camera, the 912GS Rail dump truck has superb all-round visibility, which meets the ISO standards 5006 and 14401.
The dump truck is fitted with a switch operated tipping throttle that automatically increases the engine speed when activated to quickly raise the body and thereby increase the efficiency.
The 912GS Rail is mounted with MultiTip, which means you can deliver your payload in a 180° area, exactly where you want. This allows you to unload material sideways while moving forward, making the dump truck perfect for laying out gravel or similar materials along the railway tracks.
With the optional Auto-Body-Return function the body is automatically lowered back onto the chassis with a push of a button.
Hydrema Telematics is included as standard on all Hydrema machines.
Information about temperatures, oil pressure, fuel consumption, CO2-emission and current fuel level is collected from the excavator and displayed in the web portal or on the operator's smartphone. The system also gathers and displays error codes to ensure that service and repairs are done as fast and precisely as possible.
Regarding the machine's software, updates can be uploaded via the telematics can-link unit, making remote updates possible via the GSM network, which saves a physical visit from Hydrema service personnel. These functions and features ensure the machine owner has the least possible downtime and highly efficient operation.
