ZAGRO Rail Maintenance Vehicles

Established in 1969, ZAGRO has built its enviable reputation for high-quality rail solutions using the Mercedes-Benz Unimog truck as a prime mover. The result is a catalogue of specialist equipment that allows the iconic truck to perform a number of rail-related functions, including shunting, track-laying work and re-railing along with service, repair and emergency rescue operations.

On-railing a ZAGRO-equipped Unimog truck requires only five metres of level track. Mounting and dismounting the rails is simplified for the vehicle's operator by the system's onboard cameras.

To make working with Australia's various rail gauges both possible and simple, the ZAGRO track guidance system can accommodate tracks of 1067mm, 1435mm and 1600mm - all with the same Unimog truck.

The availability of a radio remote-control system allows an operator to shunt from outside the vehicle. The same remote-control system even lets the Unimog to be operated from a man-basket without an operator in the driving position. Radio remote control reduces the number of staff required for a shunt, points change etc as the driver can operate the whole train from a convenient safe position alongside the track.
