Capstan Carpuller Layouts

ONE-WAY CAR MOVEMENT

Car can only be pulled to car puller, not beyond, nor can car be pulled back to original position.

 

ONE-WAY OR TWO-WAY CAR MOVEMENT

This layout permits one continuous movement in either direction using only a snatch block. Rope length needed here is twice the distance between car puller and sheave.

 

ONE-WAY OR TWO-WAY CAR MOVEMENT

This layout is a good option when more than one freight car has to be moved to a loading point, and  then moved forward to permit the next car to be brought up. Snatch Block must be located at extremities of car travel for two-way action.

 

ONE-WAY MOVEMENT TOWARDS CENTRALLY-LOCATED CAR PULLER

Hooking point on rope can be brought to within 15 feet of capstan from either direction. The movement illustrated does not require a reversing starter. Note which side of the capstan spool the rope comes off (See A & B references in drawing). Adding a snatch block would permit the worker to return the car to its starting point, provided the rope is sufficient in length.

 

ONE-WAY CAR MOVEMENT ON CURVED TRACK

One or more Vertical Guide Idlers permit pulling around curves. Idlers keep the rope as much in-line with curved track as possible to reduce loss of pulling power due to extreme angles. Idlers are also used to route rope around obstructions in its path.
