Anyone know of a used Powertow 40EZ for sale somewhere in the southeast US? I see them used all over online, but they are typically all the way across the country from me. Thanks!

BGF, before you go out and buy any tow, I highly recommend the Redline Sidewinder. I have a Saratoga SP and absolutely love the electric tow bar. Two added benefits I find is that the Sidewinder is electric, (no mess or hard starts), and is portable. The portability alone makes it worth it. I hated having to push/pull on that 3600 pound plane when I would land somewhere. Now I can fold the Sidewinder and stow it in the rear or forward baggage compartment to come along for the ride if I want. The unit is variable speed, and can easily be switched forward or reverse. I also find that the battery holds the charge very well. I know this sounds like a paid endorsement, but I was very impressed with it! :D

I know of a power tow for sale at 3J1 but not sure of the model. Gas powered. $2500 was the price, I think.

Hey, I cam by a few weeks ago to say hi, but you were out.
I may know someone with an electric one for sale if you are interested. He had to tow up hill and he wanted a little more power.
I just sold him my 40EZ for $850 which included $100 for shipping. I say this just to let you know that UPS charged about $1 a pound for me to ship from TN to NJ. and the unit weights about 80lbs. The other $20 was for packaging.

It was actually given to me by a good friend a while back. Thought I would use it, and did just to check it out. Needed the money for an audio panel, so I sold it. Didn't really want to, but figured the money was better spent on the plane.

BGFYankee, I have an EZ40 that is in great condition. It has the extension arms and a couple of attachments. I would sell it for $850. Not sure about the shipping (mainly because it has gas and oil in it). Most of the gas can be drained / run out, but the shipping co may not accept it? PM me if you'd like to discuss. I can send pics also. Jim

I shipped an old chain saw recently. Drain the oil and gas and then cover it with a couple thick trash bags before boxing it. Legal and ships fine. I also put it a few absorbency pads (puppy pads) just to catch any potential free fluids before it got the box.
