Choosing the Right Towbar
The choice of which tow bar to fit (standard or heavy duty) will depend on what vehicle you have & what you want to tow.
First you will need to consult your car’s owner’s manual to establish the towing capacity of your vehicle. This will give you towing weights in kg for either braked or non-braked trailers.
Next you need to work out the total all up weight of what you want to tow including the trailer and anything you wish to put in it. Alternatively call us & we will help you decide which is most suitable.
Standard Duty – Class 2
Standard towbars have a bolt on tongue and are typically used for ‘Standard Duty’ towing up to 1250KG. All towbars have to comply with Australian Design Rules ADR63.
Heavy Duty – Class 4
Heavy Duty Towbars, also known as Hitch Receivers, are suitable for ‘Heavy Duty’ towing and have a square hole to accommodate either a removable tow ball or weight distribution hitch. Heavy Duty towbars have a towing capacity of 1500kg to 4000kg.
Weight Distribution Hitches
Weight Distribution Hitches evenly distribute weight over the entire length of the towing vehicle and trailer, resulting in a more level ride with more control and stability. Call us for details.
We offer a comprehensive range of towbar accessories. Whether you are looking for a towball, wiring adaptors & sockets, hitch receiver plugs, security locking options, or one of the many accessories available, we can help – please call us on (03) 9791 8455 for more details
