The YM-16 switch machine is the new industry standard for yard switch machines. The entire machine has been engineered to enhance safety, durability, and ease of use. The YM-16 boasts the fastest throw time and the most efficient performance of any yard switch machine on the market, and the best part is, there’s zero maintenance required.

The YM-16 is known for its reliability and resiliency. YM-16 switch machines are installed in many diverse climates. From flood-prone areas to arid desert locations, the YM-16 is working in temperatures ranging from -50F to 100F and remains ever-reliable. The ARS method for integrating the machine and components provides for the highest level of reliability when deployed in challenging environments.

The YM-16  is trailable without damage, allowing a run through without the risk of derailment or machine failure. This machine’s reliability and under 1.5-second throw speed will never leave you disappointed in its performance.
