Loram’s MHC Series Material Handling Cars are ideal for any project involving transferring and offloading of new ballast, or excavated roadbed materials such as fouled ballast and spoils. Featuring a powerful, integrated transfer conveyor based on proven Loram components, the MHC Series provides a continuous, high-throughput flow of material for maximum productivity.
In comparison to other material handling cars on the market, the MHC Series offers a unique combination of reduced tare weight and increased material throughput capability. They can also connect to and receive material from any undercutter, shoulder ballast cleaner, ditch cleaner, Loram LRV, specialty excavator, or other brands of equipment.
The variable-speed transfer conveyor uses over 70 hp to discharge ballast at a higher rate of productivity, while preventing overload or stalling. The MHC Series cars are designed to accommodate materials ranging from new AREMA-specification ballast, to the most heavily-fouled, water-saturated ballast and spoils.
