AAR-Style Couplers

Move railcars with controlled precision.

Pulling the weight

Our Industry-Standard

Couple into our industry-standard locomotive style AAR coupler and connect the air hose. Within seconds you are moving railcars with controlled precision and without the loss of pulling capacity when coupled directly to an empty railcar.

Our competitors have to lift up the adjoining railcar by the coupler to borrow weight in order to hit their tractive effort numbers. Shuttlewagon does not. We pull with the weight of our machine and the traction of our rubber tires on the rail. Therefore, there is no reduction in pulling capacity when coupled to an empty car.
