The PBR550 is a heavy duty, ballast regulating and dressing machine. The machine is equipped with a fully adjustable x-type ballast plow, and unique shoulder plows.

The PBR550 can easily transfer ballast from toe line to shoulder in either direction. The ballast broom conveyor allows excess ballast to be distributed directly to either or both shoulders. Excess ballast can also be loaded via an elevator conveyor into the machine's self-contained hopper. This excess ballast can then be quickly transported and unloaded at locations where ballast is most needed.
