Does anyone have a Arrow tow bar for sale? Or can you recommend a quality one? Or tell me which one to steer clear of?

Hi Aaron,

Depends on your budget and mission.

On the low end, I don't think you can go wrong with this simple 3 pound tow bar from Spruce:

And at the high end you can get this adjustable tow bar by Bogert:

Bogert makes very nice products, but do you really want to spend five times as much as the basic tow bar from Spruce?

If you're in your own hangar it'll save you steps to have two tow bars.

One to keep in the baggage compartment, to use when you get to where you're going.

And another to keep at your hangar for pulling your plane out and putting it away.

Thanks Charlie. I will order the spruce one today, and maybe Santa will get me a Bogart or a power tug to put it away at home with. I appreciate your reply.

Hi, I use a Redline Sidewinder for my Arrow - Absolutely brilliant and easy, highly recommended, so effortless to put aircraft in the hangar.

Us fixed gear drivers are jealous of the sidewinder. At least I am anyway.
