n.b. We no longer make COF towbars, we now exclusively install towbars to WOF vehicles.
One of our specialities at Megatyre Tow Bars is the design, manufacture and fitting of COF compliant towbars for light trucks, vans, buses and mobile homes up to 4000 kgs. These towbars are always custom made; we take great care to determine our customers requirements and generally will need the vehicle for a full working day.
After the towbars fitting and wiring is complete, our New Zealand Transport Agency authorised engineer inspects the towbar and its installation and issues an official metal tag detailing its registration number and towing capacity, which is then riveted on to the towbar. Our engineer also issues a paper certificate which must be presented to the testing station at the next COF test.
It often seems that no two COF towbars are the same, there are so many variations in terms of types of rear decks and various obstructions, like water and sewerage tanks on some mobile homes at the rear of vehicles, which we have work around. It is very interesting and satisfying work.
