The X3-g comes with a highway trailer for road trips directly between the workshop and worksite. The system can be unloaded nearby and then moved to the track in all-terrain mode. The vehicle can be quickly set on the tracks thanks to the wheels’ centre-to-centre distance that has been designed to stop once it is on the track with its wheels lined up on the rails and directly lowered on. It can move at a speed of up to 18 km/h on tracks when its crane is completely brought in. The X3-g has a crane that can lift up to 740 kg at a height of up to 3 m from the centre of the track.
- It comes with its own trailer for easy road transportation (set smaller than 3,5T).
- It uses a very secure and ergonomic system, which satisfies the most stringent lifting and railway standards (contact wires, adjacent track open to traffic, etc.).
- The operator controls the crane from a sheltered seated station that has direct view of the load.
- It has a loading platform that can carry material while travelling on rails up to their unloading place.
- It can pick up loads at a distance of up to 4 m from the centre of the track and lift them to a height of up to 7,60 m.
- It optimises worksite logistics thanks to its ability to set on and off rails in only one minute, which allows it to get off tracks to let other heavy work machines go by without having to use a road rail crossing. It also allows operators to work as soon as a track’s traffic has been cut off up until the last authorized moment.
- It uses low pressure tyres, high torque driven, and it has large free space under the vehicle frame to enable it to easily get over any obstacles that may stand in its path to the rails.
- It has an anti-infringing mechanism for the adjacent track for use during the process of setting onto the track.
- There are already over 30 X3 machines in service in Europe.
