The Revolutionary Road-to-Rail Ballast Regulator

The RBR-1000 offers the greatest mobility in the industry. It attaches to an over-the-road tractor truck for transport between work locations. All components lift and fit within the frame to meet height and width requirements for permit-free traveling.

  • Designed to move over the highway as a Class 8 vehicle with a tractor weight of up to 18,000 lbs
  • Legal load — no special permits required in all lower 48 states
  • Industry-proven axles

Get off the road. Get to work.

The RBR-1000 transitions easily from RoadMode and RailMode, minimizing time between transportation and production. 

  • Integrated turntable allows deployment at most standard road crossings either parallel or perpendicular to the track
  • 35 mph travel speed on rail
  • Same production capability as any railbound ballast regulator

Simpler maintenance

The RBR-1000 was designed with maintenance in mind. 

  • The wear-plates are easily replaceable using simple hand tools
  • Nexxus Control System offers simplified electronics and ease of troubleshooting
