The Rail modules have integrated trailer couplings, front and back, mounted through a bolt-on system that can be de-mounted if not used for rail work.
Large rail wheels (with a diameter of 650 mm) ensure the position and driving stability of the excavator on track.
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 tires are fully pressed against the rail wheels and can be lifted 100 mm above the tracks.
This can avoid damage to the track sensors and shifters as the tyres can be lifted entirely off the railway tracks. Operating in high rail mode provides maximum stability.
In low rail mode, the tyres run directly upon the railway tracks. In this way, the rail wheels run with constant pressure control and suspension to achieve high safety and avoid derailing.
Running partly on the tyres provides comfortable driving and maximizes traction which is especially useful in wet conditions.
Thanks to the standard equipped three outside cameras and excellent visibility from the cabin driving onto the track is quick & easy. You can align the excavator with the rail tracks and starting work quickly.
When in the correct position just lower your rail wheels and decide whether you want to drive in high or low rail mode depending on the requirement.
Hydrema’s rail excavators fit tracks with a standard gauge of 1435 mm
As a standard feature the excavators have three cameras mounted on the counterweight and engine bonnet, with separate monitors in the cabin displays.
If you want to maximize your view and increase safety around the excavators, a 360-degree camera system is available as an option.
For maximum safety, the rail machines are fitted with the electronic Prolec height and slew limiter system which includes an RCI (rated capacity indicator).
The system can limit the working height to prevent the machine from hitting overhanging railway cables and make a virtual wall to prevent movement into the neighbouring track. The RCI constantly monitors the stability of the excavator.
In the event of an engine failure or a fault in the electrical system, the hydraulic functions can be operated using the emergency pump, located on top of the machine behind the cab.
This allows the machine to be safely removed to a secure location where it then can be repaired.
The MX series has an air-suspended driver's seat, which can be adjusted in multiple ways and provides the operator with comfort at all times.
As an option, an air-suspended seat with ventilation and longitudinal dampening is available.
The multi-joystick control is installed, as an integrated part of the new multi-adjustable armrest. The armrest can be adjusted, both in height, length and angle, so the operator can have the most comfortable working position.
The window layout provides a great view for the operator and allows easy communication with people around the machine.
The lower part of the window can be removed, while the upper window easily slides open.
The bonnet is located on the right side and opens easily and quickly with electrical activation.
When opened, you gain access to the engine, filters and radiator, making it easy to conduct service and maintenance while working at ground level.
Light up the tracks and surrounding work area with an LED working lights package, so you always get a clear view over the work area and improve the overall safety.
Our excavators come with 4 LED work lights as standard, so with the additional package, your rail excavator will have 11 LED work lights, so even the darkest places will be illuminated.
Hydrema Telematics is included as a standard on the MX G series.
Information about temperatures, oil pressure, fuel consumption 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 experience the least possible downtime and help maintain a highly efficient operation.
As an option, Hydrema can paint your new MX16G RAIL or MX20G RAIL machine in customized colours to match your preferences, ensuring your excavator will stand out and make a unique impression.
The automatic central lubrication system allocates the amount of grease the machine needs, so it performs at its best all day long while saving you a lot of working hours.
As an option, you can equip your excavator with an air pressure system in the undercarriage for trailer braking systems, allowing you to connect trailers to your rail excavator.
Make your rail excavator even more versatile with Engcon tilt-rotators, with a fully automatic quick hitch system, EC-oil and integrated grippers that are specially designed for the tough environment on the railway, where a gripper will often be used to pull and lift heavy rails.
Overall, this means that the hydraulic tools can be connected or disconnected without the operator leaving the cab, making it safer for the operator to work on the tracks.
