The TB125 multi-head towbar is capable of towing aircraft weighing up to 56,999 kg (125,000 lbs). This towbar accepts other manufacturers’ towbar heads within this weight range.
This heavy-duty aluminium towbar is painted with a durable powder coat, which prevents rusting. All aircraft attachments are made from stainless steel, therefore are resistant to both rust and corrosion. For further durability, the head attachments feature a quick-release ball lock pin with lanyard.
Featuring an elastomeric cushioning system, this multi-head aircraft towbar provides progressive resistance engineered to match aircraft weight ranges. Elastomer, a rubbery material used in this cushioning system is composed of polymers that have the ability of recovering their original shape after being stretched to great extents.
In addition, the towbar also features a field-replaceable drop through shear pin system and an elastomer shock-absorbing lunette assembly. A lunette is a hitch ring that works in combination with a pintle hook to provide a secure coupling.
Additionally, the unit is ergonomically designed for ramp operatives, as it includes a long handle that limits bending or heavy lifting. The TB125 multi-head towbar includes heavy-duty caster, puncture proof tyres and cushion ride wheels and tyres.
