American Champion Fixed Wing Towbar TH-53


American Champion Fixed Wing Towbar TH-53

This American Champion Fixed Wing towbar fits in our line between the TH-5 and the TR-34. The Th-53 comes with a telescoping tongue (R) ring or (B) ball, for easier hookups.  The TH-53 can handle most singles and medium twins up to 7000 lbs. ramp weight.

NOTE: The piper manual states that the tow pins are for hand towing. For powered towing we suggest our adapter set P/N T-P228A. For Cessnas with wheel pants installed use adapter set P/N T-N182A to prevent scratching.
