With such a broad range of towing products on the market, it’s vital to choose the right tow bars and accessories for your vehicle and towing loads. There are three general varieties of towbars that you can fit to your 4×4, ute or car – light duty, medium duty and heavy duty – with the vehicle type and the loads towed determining the type of tow bar you should purchase.
Light Duty (class 2) Towbars
Our Class 2 light duty towbar is typically rated up to 1200 kg and is a well engineered solution for light towing and mounting bike racks.
Like all Hayman Reese towbars, our Class 2 towbar is designed for easy installation and the utmost reliability.
Medium Duty (class 3) Towbars
Our medium duty towbars are typically rated up to 1600 kg and feature a 40 mm x 40 mm square hitch receiver with a removable Trailer Ball Mount. When you are not towing, simply remove the retaining clip and hitch pin and the Trailer Ball Mount slides straight out.
Heavy Duty (class 4) Towbars
Our class 4 heavy duty towbar is the industry benchmark featuring the famous 50 x 50 mm square hitch receiver. Typically rated to the vehicle’s maximum towing capacity, heavy duty towbars are a must have for towing caravans, boats, horse floats or even the professional tradesman.
Our range of heavy duty towbars also a feature a removable Trailer Ball Mount. When you are not towing, simply remove the retaining clip & hitch pin, and the Trailer Ball Mount slides straight out.
The 50 x 50 mm square hitch receiver is also compatible with our entire range of Weight Distribution kits offering improved safety, handling, control and comfort when towing heavy loads.
