Vegetation control

Flexible control.

PORR’s MAN bidirectional car enables variable and highly efficient vegetation control of track installations. Eight spray segments and a computer-based control of the spray quantity allow the herbicide to be applied selectively, free of clearance, and up to 6m wide, thus ensuring the application is ecologically and economically sound.

Since the tank can hold 5,000l of the spraying fluid, you can work efficiently (working speed of up to 25km/h) without continually having to refill it. With a track-mounted transfer speed of 50km/h, the vehicle can also by moved quickly from one train station to the next. The modular construction allows the bidirectional car to be disassembled and used for other lifting and transporting work as well.
