Unimog accesses tracks


OFF-ROAD truck specialist Unimog has launched a rail-mounted access platform with attachment specialist Two Way Technology.

The platform uses aerospace grade aluminium which is light enough to allow the truck to be used in free on rail applications.

The Unimog can approach and cross the track at right angles, lower the turntable and turn to become a track vehicle.

'Track maintenance has to be carried out during a very short time and contractors must be able to take advantage of this wherever it is, and that could be some way from a road or natural access, ' said Unimog sales director Mark Hopkins.
