Stanspec Corporation's

Rightway Car Puller

Offers New Features

As a special optional feature, frame-mounted sheaves have been integrated into the design of the popular Rightway ERP Long Distance Car

Puller from Stanspec Corporation.

New Rightway ERP Long Distance Car Puller features frame-mounted sheaves for added control and economy.

December, 1987 built-in sheaves eliminate the need for separate foundations which are required for remote sheave placement. Less space is required and overall system layout can be improved.

The ERP model provides constant torque and constant speed features and requires no bulky counterweight system. It can be used for unlim- ited distances and for pulling in either direction with controlled braking.

Standard capacities range from 500 to 15,000 pounds. Special models are available with ca- pacities up to 50,000 pounds.
