It is a high quality product which has exceeded the high demands of all our customers for reliability, maintenance and noise.

An outstanding feature of the VSM Ballast Tamper is its low noise level, which makes it possible to work in densely populated areas, even at night. All components are carefully selected and the steel is of the highest quality for optimum durability and reliability.

The steel frame surrounding it makes it easy to handle and various attachments and connections are available if required.
