NEW UNIT RECOVERS TRACK SCRAP USING MAGNETIZED DRUMS

A self-propelled machine designed to pick up released rail anchors, bolts, spikes and even tie plates in a continuous operation as it moves over the track under its own power has been developed. Known as the Scrapper, the machine uses permanently magnetized drums for picking up material released from rail-laying or tie-renewal operations and delivering it over an inclined belt conveyor to a hopper.
