Introducing Mitchell’s Ballast Regulator Broom Attachment: Revolutionizing Track Maintenance Efficiency

Meet the solution to your spot ballast regulating needs: Mitchell’s Ballast Regulator Broom attachment. Designed to handle the most labor-intensive tasks with ease, this attachment effectively reduces track maintenance costs while ensuring optimal track stability and safety.

Spot maintenance, particularly after the installation of new railroad ties and completion of tamping, can be arduous and time-consuming. Ballast regulation, the process of shaping the gravel track ballast that supports the railroad ties, is crucial for maintaining track stability and facilitating proper drainage. Without adequate ballast regulation, tracks can become unstable and pose safety risks to train operations.

Traditionally with spot maintenance, achieving proper ballast regulation involved labor-intensive methods such as manual shoveling and hand sweeping, often resulting in suboptimal outcomes. The Mitchell Ballast Regulator Broom attachment streamlines this process by fitting seamlessly onto loader backhoes and excavators.

Equipped with a unique pivoting mechanism, this attachment can regulate ballast on both the top and along the slope of the track, functioning similarly to a rotating bucket. Its versatility allows for efficient and precise ballast regulation, ensuring tracks remain stable and safe for trains to operate on.

Furthermore, the Ballast Regulator can be customized with a quick coupler for swift attachment and removal, reducing downtime and increasing operational efficiency. The attachment features removable rubber cords, identical to those used in full-time production units, ensuring consistent and reliable performance as a dedicated single-purpose ballast regulator.

Experience the future of track maintenance with Mitchell’s Ballast Regulator Broom attachment—where efficiency, precision, and reliability converge to redefine the standards of rail maintenance.
