Metso Mining Material handling Pullers Engineered wire rope puller
When it comes to railcar positioning systems, dependability drives productivity. Metso positioning systems offer greater control and accurate maneuvering to reduce downtime and maximize productivity.

How are we different?

Safety & reliability

Superior safety with fewer repairs and maintenance, lower noise, less spillage and a cleaner environment.


Over 100 years of designing and supplying hard-working equipment and parts.

OEM quality

Applying the strictest standards and tolerances for guaranteed safety and reliability.

Where high inertial loads, frequent starts and stops or variable speed is required, special drive options such as hydrostatic drives, DC drives, AC inverter drives, and AC flux vector drives can be furnished.

  • Handle up to 25 railcars

  • Pull range from 1,678 - 18,145 kilogram-force (3,700 - 40,000 lbf)

  • Less labor intensive - can be controlled from a remote station

  • Closed loop system allows reversibility.

Engineered wire rope car pullers are available in one-way and reversible models. They are frequently used fr moving rail cars, but are adaptable to many specialized handling tasks, including ladle cars, industrial cars, furnace hoods and doors, ships in dry-dock, shuttle conveyors and roll-off containers.

  • Style 969: One way car puller – generally used where individual or strings of 20 rail cars are required to be moved. 
  • Style 970: Single drum, reversible – generally used where rail cars must be moved or controlled in both directions along a level track.  Travel length is typically limited to 152 meters (500 ft.).
  • Style 1000: Double drum, reversible – designed for applications where a closed rope circuit is required. The double drum extends the permissible travel range to as much as 610 meters (2,000 ft.)
