    #148-50 Bulk Pack (50 pair) Whisker® Metal Couplers (w/o Gearboxes) - Medium Centerset Shank


    The next evolution of model train couplers starts and ends with the Kadee® Whisker® series of couplers. When we set out to improve upon the venerable No.5® we knew it had to be just as game-changing as the original. Often referred to as the "Whisker® version of the No.5®", the #148 has dethroned the classic #5 with an even longer-lasting and more reliable design. We took everything you loved about the No.5® and improved upon it. No more fumbling with centering springs. No more multi-piece assemblies. The Whisker® series of couplers is a true drop-in coupler. Use Kadee® Whisker® couplers in your next model and enjoy the most reliable and smooth coupling experience you've ever had. Always made right here in the USA with legendary Made In America quality.

    The #148 is interchangeable with the No.5®, #28, #58, #118, #119, #158, and most manufacturer's Medium Centerset OEM knuckle couplers. For a #38 equivalent use the #148 in a #252 Gearbox. #148 is also a direct replacement for most Bachmann On30 couplers. Supersedes product #140.

    Package Includes:

    • (50) Pair #148 Whisker® Metal Couplers - Medium Centerset Shank
    • (10) Spare #622 Knuckle Springs
    • **Gearboxes not included**

    It is not recommended to use a metal coupler directly on a metal surface or in a metal draft gearbox to avoid possible electrical crossover and shorting that may cause damage. For insulated couplers use the #28 coupler.

    Good couplers

    These are perfect for our iron ore cars, as they come with non-functioning couplers. Good price, great product. Came quickly and just as described.

    New couplers

    These are great couplers. Easy to use than the old #5’s. And they were priced nicely.

    I've pretty much changed out all my other brands of couplers to these whiskers. And just recently got some of the offerings in the whisker line. Highly recommend, so easy to use. Buy them, you'll like them.

    You can never argue with the undisputed king of couplers!

    Thanks for the timely shipment at a decent price,(Everyone else it seems were either out of stock or were asking Kadee's full retail price!) Another alleged supply chain shortage? Keep up the good work.
