A tow bar must be used properly, because once it is misused, the tow bar might not function anymore. So the question here, how to use a tow bar?
A tow bar is so easy to use. The answer to the question on how to use a tow bar is based on the tow bar’s class and the weight of the vehicle to be towed.
1. CLASS 1 – can carry the weight up to 2,000 pounds.
2. CLASS 2 – can carry the weight up to 3,500 pounds
3. CLASS 3 – can carry the weight up to 5,000 pounds
4. CLASS 4 – can carry the weight up to 10,000 pounds
But, take this important note. Like for example, you are to tow a vehicle weighing 5,100 pounds. Instead of choosing the CLASS 3, you are required to use the CLASS 4 since the maximum weight that CLASS 3 can tow is 5,000 pounds only.
All cars need to be towed. But towing is not easy, and cannot be done by just anybody. Towing must be done by someone with real experience in towing, and complete equipment. Improper towing may result to damage of property, or even physical injury.
There are also different kinds of trucks used towing, which is only depending upon the type of vehicle you have. The towing truck is required to have four-wheel drive to avoid breaks. Towing trucks must have gears, and this is the time that a tow bar is a requirement. Did I correctly answer the question, How to use a tow bar?
