3-Piece Boom
The machine's 3-piece boom with integrated offset for unmatched compactness and versatility. Patented boom kinematics allow the unit to work in minimal proximity of the machine.


Patented boom design gives the machine extraordinary weight distribution. A tracked chassis further contributes to stability.


Rail Ready
The 8MCR Rail-Road offers numerous on-track advantages:

  • 2 hi-rail assemblies with 4 self-propelled wheels
  • 2 indpendent hydraulic pumps for traveling and working
  • Independent control of hi-rails for comfortable re- or de-railing
  • Hydrostatic transmission with closed circuit and automotive control
  • Hydraulic performance and precision by a load sensing system combined with flow sharing


The machine design provides the operator with natural 360-degree visibility. There is no counterweight in the rear field of vision.
