Loram Maintenance of Way Inc.'s latest offering is the Track Lifter Series (TL). These machines are designed to be more productive and cost effective compared to traditional services. The TL can lift track up to 12 inches, creating a new sub-ballast layer and establishing a more permeable ballast and overall stronger track structure.
The new Loram Track Lifter is ideal for partial tamper replacements, new track construction, track rehabilitation programs, and tie replacement programs. The Loram Track Lifter operates at higher speeds than traditional undercutters and reduces tamping requirements.
