Precisely control cutter heads

Use the lever-style operator controls to precisely position the cutter heads at the desired cutting height. Or, an optional depth gauge is available to automatically control the cutting height - ensuring the same cutting height on all ties.

Quickly adjust for different rail heights

Simply adjust the pivot blocks on the Ride-On Adzer truck frame to set the machine for your current rail height conditions.

Minimize dust and debris in working area

The cyclonic-separation dust collection system collects dust and debris from the cutting head area and deposits the particles on the field side of the machine - keeping your work area cleaner and easier to view.

Easily handle crossings and obstructions

Crossings? Slide the included ramp into place to ride easily over crossings. Obstructions? Just pivot the cutting heads to move around any obstacle.
