The Sand Road2Rail 4×4 (formerly called Sand Rover) is a specialist Land Rover RRV for a full-scale assault on autumn leaf fall problems on track.

Available to hire, using the Sand R2R 4×4 eliminates:

  • ‘Wrong side track failure’ – signalling issues due to a contaminated railhead
  • Track adhesion problems that cause train overshoots and delays due to poor traction on the rail

The Sand R2R 4×4 is equipped with:

Wire Brush Scrubbers

Wire brush scrubbers to clean leaves off the railhead.

Citrasolve ‘Orange Juice’ Applicator

Used to apply a citrus-based detergent for breaking down the leaf contamination on the railhead.

  • Can be stored on board with all the other attachments
  • One nozzle per track (in-cab controls)
  • 12-volt pump 100 litre tank
  • Wander hose with lance

Sandite/Dry Sand Applicator

Sandite or dry sand applicator to create adhesion on the railhead.

Sandite Applicator:

  • IBC containers forklift into the rear body for fast refilling
  • Application unaffected by forward speed
  • On and off track loaded with 600l (1000kg) tank
  • CCTV remote camera monitoring for Sandite applicators/nozzles
  • In cab operation of on/off lever

Dry Sand Applicator:

  • Dry sand application from ‘sand bombs’
  • In cab controls

All pieces of equipment can be used or a combination of them, depending on the application and your preference.

The benefits of using the Sand R2R 4×4:

  • Avoid manual application – clean the railhead and apply ‘Citrasolve’ at the touch of a button from within the cab
  • The flexibility to concentrate on problem areas by treating it several times quickly
  • Maximum productivity at a low cost
