Our full CAN-BUS control system offers quick, easy adjustments with the touch screen and provides instant machine feedback with the control system’s troubleshooting features, saving hours of diagnosis and expediting maintenance or repair. 

This heavy-duty maintenance of way machine can work both sides of a tie at the same time, simultaneously driving up to two spikes per rail (total four per tie). Large-capacity spike trays hold up to 50 spikes each for continuous spiking.
