The following components are installed on the machine:

  • diesel power plant with a capacity of at least 400 kVA,
  • two-axle carriages,
  • traction motors with thyristor speed control, which provides a smooth acceleration and movement of the machine with a trailed train set of up to 130 tons.

The machine includes:

  • modern rail welding machine K 922-1 with an upset force of 120 tons, which allows to weld rail inserts without deformation of the insert in the form of a “loop”,
  • press for testing control welded joints, a device for pulling up rails, technological equipment.
