Ballast cleaner

A ballast cleaner (also known as an undercutter) is a machine that specialises in cleaning the railway track ballast (gravel, blue stone or other aggregate) of impurities.. Over time, ballast becomes worn, and loses its angularity, becoming rounded. This hinders the tessellation of pieces of ballast with one another, and thus reduces its effectiveness.
