Universal Tow Bar – Tow Bar 2100
Our new GSE Products are universally applicable and fit all common skid helicopters. We have developped a universal Tow Bar 2100 and compatible with the new universal ground handling wheel.
The Tow Bar 2100 has different coupling systems (standard, car, MIL) which enable universal towing. The Tow Bar 2100 can be used for landing gears with skids of varying widths up to
2,400 mm. The Tow Bar is fully assembled and ready to use after only twenty minutes,
and all needed tools are delivered together with the TOW Bar in a sturdy wooden
transport and storage box. Its foldable drawbar means that it requires only a minimum
of storage space.
The Tow Bar can be used for landing gears of different widths 2000 mm, 2115 mm, 2300 mm, 2400 mm (standard, medium and high landing gear).

The Tow Bar must be used together with Ground Handlin Wheels mounted on the helicopter landing gear. The inclination of the main frame during towing has no influence on the landing gear (pivot bearings in both beams). The helicopter must be towed with a towing vehicle. Observe the procedure and safety instructions provided in the AMM. There are two coupling systems for the transportation of the ground handling wheels (EC135, EC145) with the empty Tow Bar. The Tow Bar can be used for landing gears of different widths 2000 mm, 2115 mm, 2300 mm, 2400 mm (standard, medium and high landing gear).
