Flexible Shaft Grinder MFB/MFR product overview

Like all Pandrol grinding equipment, it has been developed to maximise the life of the track across all rail heads and profiles.

  • The wheelbarrow frame, with its all-terrain design, means that one person can comfortably transport and use the grinding unit.
  • Switches on the machine’s case and handle start up the grinder and its petrol engine, which is powerful enough for heavy-duty grinding tasks.
  • The track-cart type, with its adjustable gauge and its insulated rollers means that it can be easily moved on most common rails
  • Also equipped with a rubber wheel it can also be set to an ‘off track’ position allowing it to be transported effortlessly on the ballast
