Hilton delivered a new multifunctional road-rail catenary maintenance vehicle to our customer EQOS in Austria. This vehicle is the largest rail vehicle ever build by Hilton. The MAN TGS 8x4 32t chassis is equipped with a hydrostatic rail drive system with 2 bogies. The superstructure consists of a Palfinger PA1002 platform with 3 baskets, a PKR115 loading crane with basket module and a PFD99 wire positioner. Besides the vehicle is equipped with a measuring pantograph and laser catenary measuring equipment. The additional wagon brake system allows to couple the vehicle with several wagons (max. 12 axles). The vehicle is equipped with a lot of special features which make it a multi-functional machine for catenary installation and maintenance on track. With this vehicle design, Hilton offers an alternative to replace heavy and less flexible rail bound vehicles at significantly reduced costs.
