Forklift towbars – the best alternative to tow trailers

Forklift towbars – how do they work?

Welcome to, the experts in towing and manoeuvring equipment!

In today’s world of efficiency and precision, having the right tools for the job is crucial. Especially in the logistics industry and on industrial sites, forklifts play a key role. Interestingly,

 they can also be an invaluable aid in manoeuvring trailers.

Why use a manoeuvring aid for trailers?

Steering trailers in tight spaces can be a re

al challenge, especially when they are heavily loaded. This is where a forklift steering adapter takes over the task. They offer several advantages over traditional hitches, such as:

  • Precision and mobility: thanks to the enormous manoeuvrability of the forklift, trailers of all types and sizes can be moved precisely to any location, whether it is a small or big trailer, camping caravan or another device.
  • Easy to install: the hitch is simply attached to the forklift arm and is ready to use. This saves time and makes it extremely efficient to use.
  • Versatility: Universal manoeuvring towbars are available for a wide range of forklift trucks such as Linde, Jungheinrich, Hyster or STILL, ensuring compatibility and flexibility in different working environments.
  • Interchangeability of parts: The ball head of the towbar is screwed on and can be easily changed to accommodate different trailer couplings, whether a jaw coupling or a Rockinger coupling with a 2-hole flange plate.
