Extension protects cab backs

The Phillips X-Tend.

Phillips Industries’ new X-TEND tracker bar extension offers a way to protect the back of cabs from swinging cables.

Extending the tracker spring kit and cables an extra eight inches from the tracker bar, the nylon support bracket keeps everything 12 inches away from the back of the cab, addressing a potential source of scuffing. A foam gasket on the back of the bracket also helps to protect the cab surface, while the stainless steel metal tubing and eye hook resist corrosion.

It’s designed to work with ¾-inch tracker bars and can be mounted on tractors with a solid metal back or with windows that have a metal frame down the center of the cab.
