TowTract is a tow truck with caterpillars controlled by a radio-command and is halfway between a forklift truck and a tow truck.

This French invention is very effective for the towing and the handling of vehicles. The concept is to remove all types of vehicles, gently and without any technical constraints (the system slip underneath the vehicle and lift it without traction effect).


TowTract was created in 2012, a patented innovation, this very original automobile tow truck is at ease everywhere and especially where the usual recovery trucks no longer pass and unlike 4x4 baskets, there are no trolleys to add...

TowTract is able to take a vehicle even if the car is locked, damaged or burned, about anywhere (underground parking, small courtyard, in a filed, in the mud or on the snow, etc...), specially where a truck can not go because of it size.

The TowTract can go on a truck with its load, with a vehicle of 2.5 tons, even if the truck is not a tow truck and it can go down and park the vehicle to store it.
