Latest generation of dual-mode excavators

The Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group relies on modern equipment to ensure efficiency for its customers.

A targeted investment policy is also essential in commercial track construction to ensure the best quality for customers.


The BBW Group invested in five additional modern dual-mode excavators, equipped with the SW 33 Likufix hydraulic quick-change system. This system enables a quick and safe change of hydraulic attachments from the driver's cabin. On one hand this enhances safety and on the other hand, it ensures greater efficiency in the work process.


In Germany, the RSRG is going one step further to advance digitalisation in excavator use. Two new excavators, equipped with 3D machine controls, are ready for use on customer projects from autumn 2023.


The digital terrain models necessary for working with the 3D machine control are created by the inhouse BIM department and can be transferred to the machine from any location. Via remote access, the construction progress is visible in real-time. This allows the sequence of subsequent work to be adjusted. As a result, RSRG can guarantee its customers a service optimised in both quality and quantity. Moreover, the 3D machine control contributes to workplace safety.


To align the heights and incline of a subgrade, for instance, the track construction workers do not need to enter the danger zone of the machine; this can be comfortably and safely performed by the machine operator via the displays in their cabin. Modern attachments such as sleeper exchange and sleeper laying devices, as well as a range of special attachments, complete the package with which the RSRG can efficiently complete customer projects.
