HOW STRONG IS YOUR PIPE? YOU BE THE JUDGE!
When we develop a new designed Bull Bar, whether it be a Kenworth, Volvo, Western Star or any other brand of vehicle, we take everything we have learnt through repairing bull bars of that make and model. We consider the consistent repairs, cracks, and failures. We test the products integrity, along with components to measure the effectiveness or weakness. We consider owner and operator feedback. These are just some of the information we use before we even begin a design, we aim to provide, the best products on the market. How strong is your product? Why not have a look at some of our testing.
80TON TOW POINT
We also wanted to achieve a much more piratical tow point that was able to be rated and achieve an acceptable load. By using our specific design, we were able to achieve a tow point rated to 80ton, which exceed other competitors on the market some by over half.
VOLVO FM BULL BAR APPROACH ANGLES
During our research ground clearance and approach angles were a major concern to operators. Our design has been able to maximise the approach angles eliminating current problems with competitor bars that bottom out or scrap upon entering uneven driveways and other off road applications
EXCELLENT GROUND CLEARANCE ON THE NEW FM DESIGN BULL BARS
A lot of European vehicles are designed closer to the ground, enabling safer entry, and many other benefits. While this can be an advantage we have found that approach angles are compromised once a bull bar is fitted. Our new design is based on operator feedback, with approach angles being a concern for those vehicles constantly negotiating steep entrances and off road applications. Taking this on board we have designed the bull bars for maximum clearance.
DESIGN FEATURES OF THE NEW FM BULL BAR
Our newly Designed Bull Bar has been based on operator feedback from the industry along with our many years of experience. Our top pipes carry double the load of others in the market place and under testing bend less than half of other competitor Bull Bars. A 20% reduction in the light zone bar has increased its strength and along with a 25% stronger aluminium lights splitters, has seen a dramatic increase in strength and protection of this area, with a stronger over all construction and a steel box section we have been able to build an 80ton tow point as standard, higher than any other manufacturer on the market today.
TESTING OF COMPONENTS FOR OUR NEW VOLVO BULL BAR.
HOW STRONG IS YOUR PIPE?
As part of our development and research, we already knew what was failing in the market place due to us continually repairing other brands of Bull Bars out there in the market place. By starting from a blank canvas we were able to design a bull bar and components, from not only many years of experience, but from an operators point of view in what they wanted and required, from the product.
Attached is a PDF click on it to open it and see some of the tests carried out. It certainly begs the question “HOW STRONG IS YOUR PIPE? YOU BE THE JUDGE"
THE INSPIRATION TO DESIGN A NEW VOLVO BULL BAR FROM THE GROUND UP
Here are some constant failures we see from other Bull Bars. This lead us to the development of a complete new bull bar designed from the ground up.
