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.

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.
