Plant hire firm BCL has placed an order for 10 Komatsu PC128US tracked excavators converted for road-rail use by Rexquote.

The Komatsu base machine is designed so hydraulic rail bogies can be fitted for travel to a worksite, where normal working is carried out using the vehicle’s tracks, minimising soil and ballast disturbance. The PC128US can be fitted with standard front-end equipment. A short 1·4m tailswing and sliding cab door mean it can be used without fouling adjacent tracks.
