The vehicle is a self-propelled railway wagon on which a power plant, working and loading equipment are mounted.

All mechanisms and systems of the vehicle are serviced by a diesel-electric power plant located on the front of the wagon. The vehicle controls are situated inside the vehicle cabin.

The working equipment of the vehicle is a vibrating unit which provides the grip and rigid connection of the element to be embeded (catenary mast or mast's footing) with the vibrating hummer and its embedding (sinking) into the soil due to the vibration effect.

Loading of the catenary masts (or mast's footings) to the trailed wagon for transportation to the work site and their feeding to the working area of the vibration hummer's loader is carried out by a crane mounted at the rear end of the vehicle.

The crane can be controlled remotely (radio-control),  and the hydraulic supports of the crane, the working desk and the vibration hummer are controlled from the stationary control post.

The vehicle can as well perform drilling operations.
