Vegetation fleet

QTS Vegetation management fleet

The company owns and operates its own fleet of vegetation management plant, attachments & other machinery.

A number of these machines are RRV’s which are first of type and have been developed by QTS and licensed for use by Network Rail’s Product Acceptance team. The fleet incorporates several RRV’s with the ability to on-track, travel and operate under live OHLE. This can dramatically reduce the cost of maintenance activities and increase productivity in possessions.
