Draft Gears

Crown SE

The Crown SE is a high capacity all-steel draft gear certified under AAR specification M-901E-82. Its exclusive double-wedge design provides greater car protection and lower coupler forces, over a wider range of impact speeds, than other all-steel gears. Under all operating conditions, run-in and run-out is less for cars equipped with the Crown SE draft gear.

Designed for application to the standard 24-5/8" pocket, the Crown SE is engineered to provide reliable service in freight cars with minimum wear to the draft gear pocket and attachments. Crown SE draft gears have successfully completed service applications of more than 1.5 million miles.
