The drawbars are available in lengths from 2150 mm to 4520 mm in increments of 50 mm and with c/c distances 700, 900, 980, 1050, 1100 and 1200 mm.

Supplied pre-assembled
The drawbars are supplied pre-assembled in the requested lengths. To simplify transportation and warehouse storage, the front slider is telescopically inserted in the rear member.

Easy to install
Easy to install on trailers. No welding or drilling required. All installation – including accessories – is done with bolted joints.

Thanks to their modular design and telescopic construction, the drawbars are available in lengths from 2150 mm up to 4520 mm. The attachment’s c/c distances are available as 700, 900, 980, 1050, 1100 and 1200 mm.

Why should I choose a VBG drawbar?

VBG system overview

Quality you can rely on

No chain is stronger than the weakest link. When you choose a reliable coupling, you also need be able to rely on the drawbar. The high quality of VBG's products means that the drawbar will be an equally strong link as other VBG products in the coupling system. This reduces the risk of unexpected downtime. Dependability for both owners and drivers.

Drawbar Multi comlete

It is not just a drawbar

With a large selection of adapted catwalks, brackets, attachments and other accessories, the driver can work both faster and more safely when connecting and disconnecting the trailer. This reduces the risk of both personal injury and damage or unnecessary wear on hoses and couplings.
