Ballast unloading machine for new track construction
Herzog looked to take the labor out of the manually operating doors on standard ballast cars and create a safer, more efficient solution by replacing them with hydraulically-powered doors that are controlled remotely.
In doing so, Herzog reduced the number of employees needed for operation, only requiring a single operator, which reduces manual labor and employee time while increasing overall operating efficiency.

During ballast distribution, our remotely operated hydraulically-powered doors provide easy opening and closing. The doors eliminate the need for manual manipulation/operation, and only a single operator is required for ballast distribution, increasing efficiency and safety for your employees.
