IMI Gliding, Towing Bar - Heavy

IMI Gliding, Towing Bar - Heavy

This Tow bar allows you to tow the glider with a car equipped with the ISO-50 ball towing connection. (The term `heavy gliders` means gliders with water ballast with MTOW over 525kg, two-seaters, open class, gliders with turbo or self-launcher engine)

It can be fitted with a tail lifting adapter as in the pictures

This system for heavy gliders does not carry the tail of the glider in the air, it only pulls/pushes and steers, the glider rides on the tail dolly. The towing bar connects to the tail dolly with a robust steel tube hinge with closing lock. To mount/dismount the towing bar it simply has to be revolved up to the angle of 45° and pulled out from the tail dolly hinge.

The towing bar is telescopic and can be shortened for transport very quickly and easily. Simply push the lock button and push together. The towing bar is mainly made of anodised aluminium, the highly stressed parts are made of zinc-galvanised steel. The tail dolly has to be modified before use - simply install the connecting adaptor with hinge tube between the tail dolly body and castor wheel. This part is, of course, shipped with the bar and is included in the price. The dimensions meet the standardised dimensions of the wheel mounts, so the prepared holes fit for all factory delivered tail dollies automatically.


The version shown in the pictures is fitted with a tail-lifting adapter.  (The towing bar can be supplied without at a reduced price)
