Rail Driven Machines
NPK's line of railway mining vehicles consists of two classes of rail driven machines from Paus: rail excavators - for rail-side ditch cleaning and rail mucking loaders - for clearing track lines.
The Paus KRF 40 Rail Excavator (Ditch Cleaning Vehicle) utilizes a boom-mounted bucket (or other attachment) for quick & simple cleaning of rail beds, drains and ditches to either side of the tracks.
The Paus KRF 40D diesel-driven Rail Mucking Loader (Track Cleaning Vehicle) utilizes a front-mounted bucket to scoop and load rubble from the railway onto a conveyor belt that dumps the debris into a truck attached in the rear.
The Paus 40E.1 Rail Mucking Loader serves the same function as the KRF 40D above, but is powered by a direct-current electric motor rather than diesel.
