Proper ballast scarification is a key element in the successful installation of steel sleepers.

Scarification improves ballast flow to improve tamping speed and track quality.

The Thomson Engineering Design Ballast Scarifier incorporates specially designed tines which lift and break up the ballast, a levelling blade to smooth the surface and a crumbling roller to ensure the upper surface is completely clear of any clods.

The device can be specified for tractor three point linkage mounting or for fitment to an excavator.
