Sleeper Replacer SB40/SB60

Pandrol’s SB40 and SB60 Sleeper Replacers are high-performance excavator attachments designed to make track work faster and safer. 

  • The SB60 has innovative tilt and rotate functions that allow sleepers to be changed from both the middle and the side of the track.
  • The SB40 provides the same cost-effective, safe solution, but has been designed specifically for smaller carrier machines (weighing 8 to 12 tons) that are equipped with a permanently fitted tilt rotator. It is approximately half the weight of the SB60.
  • Both attachments can be combined with Pandrol’s Auto Master clipping attachment for swift, safe installation of Pandrol’s FC and FE Fastclips on new sleepers.

01

High performance

04

Auto Master Clipping

05

Maximum flexibility

The SB60’s innovative tilt and rotate functions create maximum flexibility, allowing sleepers to be changed from both the middle and side of the track.
