  • Features:
  • Tension/Compression Shear - protects from excessive "pull" or "push" loads to nose gear.
  • Radial Shear - protects nose gear from excessive loads while turning. Attachment heads are made to break a shear pin if a safe turning load is exceeded; but head stays secured to towbar.
  • Dual Shear - attachment heads are made to break a shear pin if maximum turning load or straight overload limits are exceeded; but head stays secured to towbar.
  • Shear Protection: Some towheads will incorporate one of the shear formats, while others will incorporate tension/compression and/or radial shear protection.
  • Shock Absorber Protection:
  • All multi-head towbars incorporate a spring type shock absorber that protects the nose gear from shock loads encountered during normal towbar operation.
