The JCB derived RA310 joins TXM Plant’s expanding fleet

TXM Plant is proud to be working collaboratively with Rail-Ability Ltd in the acquisition of a new fleet of heavy tracked excavators. Leading the way in innovation, a collaboration of this kind reflects a refreshing shift in RRV investment in the UK, buying British Machines from a highly respected UK converter.

As we move forward into 2021, TXM’s extensive strategic investment plan to enhance our fleet continues, with the welcoming of these new machines. The JCB derived RA310 tracked RRVs, with high-end specifications and performance capabilities, including final drives with dynamic disc braking and removable auxiliary counterweights increasing the GVW to 34 tonnes. The machines are built to RIS-1530-PLT Issue 6 and feature Rail-Ability RCI and integrated safety systems, including advanced ALO MLD, SMS Rail Data Logger Telematics, Lifting Attachment SWL rerate features, and 69t trailer towing capability, as standard. The 69t trailer towing capability is further enhanced, with the Rail-Ability ‘No-Trap Zone’ coupling system.

The machines are equipped with additional options, including Rail-Ability Dig to Depth operator assist features, and boast Pressurised Cab Dust Exclusion Systems. Large Rail-Ability 1.7 m3 Capacity Ballast Handling Buckets are also supplied to suit the Miller Quick Hitches.

Customer focus is at the heart of our business. TXM Plant will continue to innovate to provide the best RRV solutions to the UK’s rail network. The expansion of our fleet has been tailored to meet the needs of our customers, providing improved reliability and efficiency on projects across the country. With a relentless focus on safety, you can depend on us to deliver the right plant for your needs.

John Webb, Technical Director at Rail Ability Ltd, commented, “There is no doubt that 2020 brought much turbulence and uncertainty to the industry, while in refreshing contrast 2021 brings an exciting new collaboration between TXM Plant and Rail-Ability Ltd. The first milestone in this journey is marked with the delivery of these machines in a new fleet of RA310 tracked RRVs. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the TXM Plant Team publicly for this order and look forward to delivering more machines to them throughout 2021 and beyond.”
