Draft Gears


The SL-76 draft gear is an excellent gear for all cars, up to and including 286,000 pound gross rail load. Miner's service proven friction clutch mechanism and natural rubber spring package are utilized to provide extra heavy-duty car protection and less operating slack, resulting in reduced wear to sill walls and all draft system components.

Designed for application to the standard 24-5/8" pocket, the SL-76 meets the AAR specification M-901-E.
