MSV - Metro and light rail maintenance service vehicle
The MSV is a powerful 4 wheel-drive service vehicle designed for maintenance work in metro and light rail systems. While power is transmitted to the pneumatic tires, rail wheels automatically adjust to guide the vehicle on track. This self-propelled vehicle can transport up to four seated persons and can be operated in two different modes: hydrostatic drive ramp speed of 0-1 km/h (0,6 mph) and mechanical drive high speed of 0-40 km/h (25 mph) in both directions. The slow speed mode is primarily used for tunnel cleaning operation, while high speed mode permits rapid transportation to job site for maintenance crew. The exhaust system is equipped with a catalytic gas purifier that reduces emissions. Above all, the MSV has a remarkable hauling capacity of up to 91,000 kg (200,600 lb) and can be used to haul lorries with equipment and supplies or to tow metro vehicles.
