It can increase yard safety by restraining the movement of a single cut of railcars or an entire train – preventing railcars from rolling into a railcar repair area – with the push of a button. This always-active retarder delivers continuous braking pressure to railcars as they enter the unit. The spring design does not require air, hydraulics or electricity to operate. A shim adjusting system simplifies maintenance of the unit.
The F4 Skate Retarder is unique among competing skate retarders in that it adjusts its breaking force according to the car’s weight, virtually eliminating wheel pop-outs and increasing the lifespan of the retarder’s friction components.
The F4 skate retarder is assembled and panelized for easy installation. When it comes to reliability and innovation the Precision Rail and Mfg.
