What type of R/R Excavator to go for?

Tyred or Tracked or maybe a Mecalec?

Can tracked machines lift and use flails?

Part of the year likely to be needed for on rail work such as flailing, ballast profiling and general lifting duties.

Remainder of the year likely to be used as a excavator working on reballasting jobs with single line track out.

Bearing in mind the high axle load of a wheeled machine.

Can anyone give me an idea for what would be best as an all rounder.

Not much to choose from when ontrack.

Both machines will lift and flail.

Working off track and on ballast suggest a tracked machine would be better.

A tracked machine is generally a more stable platform.

Tracks = low ground pressure, good over rutted/poor groud.

Wheels = good on hard surface and higher transit speeds intra and inter site.

For flail work, ensure the hydraulics can feed enough hydraulic flow and cooling for a flail attachments.
