KUBO is a shunting locomotive specially designed for use in railway workshops and depots.

It features flexibility, low capital & running costs, safe operation, zero gas emissions and a very low noise level.

KUBO can be customised to individual requirements with the many available

With battery power the KUBO offers high shunting performance with zero workshop emissions.  The on board charger means that the KUBO can be charged from a suitable standard power outlet and does not require a dedicated charging point in the depot.

The KUBO features a radio control as standard and is normally used for moving trains over equipment like wheel lathes or bogie drops.  Full interlocks can be provided to link with the lathe / drop control system to ensure safe operation.
