Topper Industrial offers its quick coupler and sliding tow bar products. These make attaching and detaching facility tow carts an effortless process. There is no bending over or lifting to hook the carts up. The operator simply grabs the soft red grip at waist level on the sliding tow bar and guides the pintle ring directly into the rear coupler. The pintle ring is spring-loaded to hold it in the exact location for the receiver. Connection is made automatically with the spring-loaded lug in the coupler, which is easily released for uncoupling by a simple foot depression. When coupling carts or adding Topper carts to a train of carts, the operator simply pushes the cart up against another and then pulls it away. Once the cart is pulled away from the other carts, it will be connected by a heavy-duty tow bar for smooth towing and cornering.
An important feature of this tow package is the automatic release of the floor lock as the tow bar is extended. The floor lock is never down when being towed where it can be "ripped off." This feature allows loading these carts in a semi-trailer with the floor lock set and the tow bar retracted for space and safety. To unload the trailer, the carts can be pulled out as a train with tow bars extended and brakes released. In this way you can get a 70-foot train out of a 53-foot trailer.
