Available on some models, the auto-adjusting chain dramatically reduces chain wear, increasing safety and reducing downtime. The automatic chain adjustment system delivers the right amount of tension throughout the cutting cycle, and gives you continuous cutting ability.

The Dymax Ballast Blaster is the world’s only ballast maintenance work tool with full 360° continuous rotation. With this flexibility operators can position the machine to work from either side of the track and at sites where tracks run close together. It also allows operators maximum cutting speed and performance.
