Specialised Hi-Rail Equipment
Australia’s Safest Hi-Rail Fleet Ready To Deploy To Site

Our extensive fleet of specialist Hi-Rail machinery and civil equipment – together with our experienced operators – allows us to deliver world-class projects.

We have one of the largest fleet of bespoke Liebherr Hi-Rail equipment in Australia, including the latest model dual-purpose Hi-Rail Liebherr Excavator A922, a unique vehicle that can be used on both the road and on railway tracks. This state-of-the-art machine has been factory fitted with a range of specialist rail attachments and offers a reliable and efficient solution for railway construction and maintenance. Its superior performance allows for faster project completion and outstanding results.

Innovation At Its Finest
Superior Performance with Innovative Hi-Rail Technology

At PRM, we constantly strive for innovative solutions that drive new standards and approaches in the rail industry.

Our Doosan Excavator with custom mobile Flashbutt Welding Head attachment delivers high quality welds with speed and precision. The only Hi-Rail welder of its kind in Western Australia, this delivers transformational results on conventional track maintenance and repair work, delivering cost savings and performance uplift.

PRM’s smart track laying system involves a custom sleeper laying attachment integrated with a Hi-Rail excavator and the latest machine-controlled guidance system. Operated from any position the machine facilitates simultaneous lifting and placement of sleepers, a task previously requiring rail surveyors and multiple rail technicians – enhancing safety, precision and delivery time.
