Drawbar Gears

DrawGuard™ FT

The DrawGuard™ FT delivers the ultimate in weight savings, slack reduction and car protection.

The ultra-high preload TecsPak® spring behind a state-of-the-art forged steel friction mechanism provides over twice the resistance to compression and more than four times more energy absorption tan other available all-rubber drawbar gears. The high-strength steel housing contains all components, protecting the TecsPak spring from over-compression, while limiting travel to one inch. Lightweight the DrawGuard FT weighs 45 pounds less than all-rubber drawbar gears, which have no housing to protect their rubber spring from damage.
