The Pacesetter Hydraulic Car Retarder


The Pacesetter is a hydraulically controlled clasp retarder built on the industry’s most versatile platform, the M96. The M96 platform’s durable cast construction makes it the workhorse of the industry.

The Pacesetter’s low maintenance sets it apart from competitive hydraulic clasp retarders. Less down time enables customers to process more railcars in their humping and marshalling operations which in turn maximizes their profits.

The Pacesetter is designed to control speed and hold railcars, wagons and bogies. By combining the proven M96 platform performance with the self-contained hydraulic system it’s no wonder why the Pacesetter has a fast response time to tower commands. Gain control of your throughput when marshalling, cutting or switching railcars, wagons and bogies with the Pacesetter.
