NEW SNOWPLOWS FOR VR'S DIESEL LOCOMOTIVES

NYA SNOPLOGENHETER FOR VR'S DIESELLOK

The new snowplow unit consists of a plow blade and its hydraulic manuvering machinery. The unit has a weight of 2.5 tons. When two units have been installed, which takes about 30 min per unit, one gets a very efficient snowplow. The first snowplow unit was planned in 1978, the first prototype was manufactured in 1979 and this year two more units have been manufactured. When the first snow falls, one can choose a suitable locomotive and equip it with the snowplows. When the winter is over, one can use it again as an ordinary locomotive without snowplows.
