Phillips unveils tracker bar extension to protect back-of-cab surface

The new X-TEND tracker bar offers eight inches more of clearance.

The new X-TEND tracker bar being offered by Phillips Industries is designed to prevent scuffs and marring on the back of the cab from swinging cables. To do so it extends the tracker spring kit and cables out an additional 8 inches from the tracker bar, with a total of 12 inches away from the back of the cab.  This additional space keeps cables from knocking against the back of the cab, preventing surface damage, the company noted.

Phillips added that the device’s nylon support bracket rests up against the back of the cab eliminating the need for installation hardware. Additionally, a soft cushion of foam gasket padding on the back of the bracket prevents damage to the cab’s surface. Both the mounting bracket and support bracket are made of non-corrosive materials, and the metal tubing and eye hook are constructed of stainless steel for durability and corrosion resistance, Phillips noted.

The X-TEND is designed for use with tracker bars with a ¾-in. diameter, and can be installed on tractors with a solid metal back or with windows with a metal frame down the center of the cab.
