A skate retarder can be inert or hydraulically powered. They are utilized when one needs to completely stop and hold a car. These are generally used as an end of yard control device. An inert Skate Retarder is always active, whereas a hydraulic one is controllable.
Our hydraulic skate retarder features a weight responsive design that adjusts braking power with respect to car weight. This eliminates potential pop up.
