Switch/Spot Ballast Undercutting
Balfour Beatty Rail's specialized equipment provides ballast
remediation in sidings, yard applications, switches or other track
areas too small for standard undercutting equipment.
The switch undercutter uses a ditcher wheel and undercutter chain to

Our equipment can get to those areas where obstructions would prohibit
the use of a large production-style undercutter. Specialists can discard the fouled ballast into an airdump,
gondola-style car or into the outer track area.
Don't let fouled ballast jeopardize the safety and efficiency of your
