Many Uses For New Tow Bar
"It's flexible for easy hookup, yet self-locks and stays rigid for towing," says Stan Hanson, farmer-inventor who is manufacturing and marketing a new invention born in his farm shop.
Called the Hanson Tow Bar, it's made up of telescoping arms and a "flexing" feature which allows it to be easily hooked to a tractor, wagon, forage chopper, truck or whatever. The hitch end flexes 16 in. to either side and about 12 in. to the rear for easy hookup without having to be right "on the money" every time in backing up to it with a truck, tractor, silage chopper, etc. Once hooked up, the hitch instantly self-locks into a rigid A-frame when you pull forward with the towing vehicle.
Possible uses include towing your pickup behind a tractor, or pulling an entire train of implements or vehicles. Eye bolts for attaching the hitch can be welded onto the bumper or frame of several implements or vehicles, allowing one hitch to be used interchangeably between them. Each half of the hitch weighs only 15 lbs., making it easy to carry and store.
Suggested retail of the Hanson Tow Bar is $69.
