Clip Driver CD400

Pandrol’s Clip Driver CD400 is a robust, high-performance clipping machine that clips and unclips Pandrol Fastclips and e-Clips. When fitted with proximity sensors, the CD400 fastens clips automatically, enabling additional productivity and security.

Attached to a railroad vehicle (RRV) and equipped with a sleeper lift, the Clip Driver CD400 can be used to raise low ties for new construction (Fastclip only), harnessing hydraulic power from the RRV. The easily adjustable attachment has a durable frame structure that is fitted with high-quality bearings to ensure longevity and maintain performance levels.
