BCW UTB-1000: Universal Tow Bar

Universal tool bar custom madeBCW’s unique universal bus tow bar Model UTB-1000 is designed for fast, damage-free service and fits almost all fleet transit coaches. There is no front-end lifting and as such this eliminates the damage to windshields and front-end panels. A problem that can amount to thousands of dollars may be incurred during the towing operation.

A second tow truck operator is not necessary. This minimizes labor cost to transit agencies when retrieving coaches from the highways. The tow bar unit can be put in service in minutes eliminating long delays between tows and most importantly allows the coach to be returned to the maintenance facility for repair and speedily returned to service. The tow unit is easily rolled into position for attachment by only one person. Its Tee-Bar caster system is designed such that it is evenly balanced for a one-man operation for moving tow bar to the attachment position. Once the tow bar is in position for hook-up sliding attachment sleeves allow the position of the eyehooks to be easily connected.

The UTB-1000 is also ideally suited for towing vehicles within maintenance yards. Its fast hookup time means time saving to move coaches within maintenance yards especially when different maintenance operations are necessary.

BCW warrants UTB-1000 for 1 year.
