Machine Description

Offered in gauges of 914mm (36”), one meter, and 1067mm (42”), the KNG 800 is a powerful track dressing machine specifically designed for narrow gauge applications. The short wheel base, and narrow track allow this machine to negotiate tight curves and the frame has been widened to ensure a stable working platform. The ballast equipment is designed to fit in a narrow travel envelope, ensuring that it can go where ever it is needed. The low ratio axles provide greater tractive effort, allowing the machine to work on steeper grades.

Power Unit:
A 260hp Cummins tier III engine, Danfoss hydraulic valves, hydrostatic pump for propel and vane pumps for broom and control functions, 6 speed power shift transmission, 24” wheels with four-wheel drive. Clasp type air applied brakes on all four wheels with composition shoes. Service brakes are air applied, spring released. Parking brakes are spring applied, air released. Air dryer is standard equipment.
Cab:
The KNG 800 cab has unmatched operator visibility. Side mounted heater and hydraulic drive A/C provides a clean roof line with no components mounted on the roof. The pressurized cab has improved headroom, and standard joystick controls.
Broom:
The broom is constructed of 3/8 T-1 steel for long life. The broom is outfitted with a reversing valve for sweeping away from switches and crossings utilizing heavy duty knocker elements. The deflector is hydraulically raised and lowered from the cab.
Plows:
The KNG 800 is equipped with a heavy duty one pass transfer plow with skid and brace. Pneumatic locking pins hold the plow blades in position. Blades and wear plates are made of T-1 steel, and use a bolt on design to allow for easy field replacement.
Wings:
Reversible side wings are constructed of T-1 steel with bolt on replaceable wear plates, and a unique template door break away system to minimize potential damage. Articulated template doors provide excellent control while dressing the shoulder. Wing structure and control cylinders are mounted low on the frame to provide superior operator visibility.
