The industry workhorse in shoulder ballast maintenance
Loram’s High Performance (HP) Shoulder Ballast Cleaner is the industry’s proven performer for heavy haul, freight and commuter railroads. The Loram HP Series leads the industry with superior value – measured as the best combination of production speed, depth of cut and quality of cleaning.
Loram’s HP Series machines are self-propelled, equipped with twin 30-inch wide, high-capacity digging buckets to clean ballast from the tie ends outward to the edge of the ballast section, digging as deep as 20 inches from the top of the tie.
Vibrating separator screens on the Loram HP SBC clean and restore fouled ballast by removing dirt, mud, and fines more effectively than any other machine in its class. With Loram’s exclusive elliptical throw agitation and variable screen leveling, the separator screens on the HP Series provide distinct cleaning advantages over any other machine on the market. In wet conditions that are frequently encountered, the screen angle can be adjusted lower for greater cleaning action. In common ballast conditions, the screen angle can be adjusted higher, delivering increased cleaning speeds.
