Description
 
The #148 coupler will work anywhere a #5 Coupler will work. The #148 coupler is a direct replacement for most Bachmann On30 couplers and a direct replacement for any plastic Medium Centerset "clone" couplers.

The #148 Kadee Magne-Matic "WHISKER" Coupler features a Metal Coupler, Metal "WHISKER" Centering Spring, insulated Draft Gear Box and Lid. The #148 Coupler may be mounted with supplied #242 draft gear box or with manufactures cast-on coupler pockets. It is not recommended to use a metal coupler directly on a metal surface or in a metal draft gear box to avoid the possible electrical crossover or shorting that may cause damage. Use the provided insulated draft gear box.

Reviewer: Alan P  
Great product; "Whisker" feature and draft gear box make it almost foolproof to install.

#148 couplers August 30, 2012
Reviewer: Larry Creel  
I always use the #148 couplers on all of my rolling stock to replace the Kadee #5's. These never break in long trains.

Kadee HO #148 All Metal Self-Centering "WHISKER" C December 22, 2011
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Illinois  
I continue to make this my de facto standard for all cars on my railroad. Inexpensive and reliable they are the only couplers I have ever used that are able to withstand the stress of hauling live loads session after session. I wouldn't use anything else

KD #148 whisker coupler December 14, 2011
Reviewer: John Alaniva from Canton, MI  
It's nice being able to install couplers with a minimum of parts. I did have one small problem installling in Moloco draft gear - the materail around the eyelet was cast too think and wouldn't fit. Swapping with another coupler worked. It still is a fine coupler and it will go in something else that isn't as precise.
