Aircraft operators have long been faced with a conundrum: is it best to use a strong (yet heavy) steel towbar, or to sacrifice some strength with a lightweight aluminum construction?
Our new towbar is the answer to your problems. Featuring the best of both worlds, the AERO Specialties JX-series multi-head aircraft towbar weighs only 110 lbs. (50 kg.), yet is constructed of heavy-duty DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel) 1026 cold-rolled seamless formed steel.
With a 3.25 inch (8.25 cm) diameter tube opening, the JX towbar is compatible with many towbar heads from AERO Specialties, Tronair, and other manufacturers.
The JX towbar has a towing capacity of 125,000 lbs. (56,699 kg.), making it the perfect solution for corporate and regional aircraft.
The strength of steel, with a similar weight to aluminum! Only from AERO.
