Series PSE 170

The PSE-170 Series Towbar is designed to handle the forces that comes from handling the Wide Body Commercial Aircrafts. The towbars are well balanced and easy to maneuver around the ramp area with its wheels in the locked down position. The wheel assembly has a spring retraction to allow for easy lifting of the wheel assembly after hooking-up to the aircraft and tug.

The towhead mechanism engages the landing gear towing lugs and locks in place with a spring loaded retaining latch. This latch may be released by hand to disengage the Nose Landing Gear (NLG).

The towbar is designed to handle all of the aircraft listed below to the maximum allowable towing loads. Each applicable shearpin value has been calculated to protect the NLG from both towing and torque overload. A cushion swivel toweye allows attachment of the towbar to the tow vehicle hitch pin on uneven or inclined ramp surfaces.
