Phillips Industries Launches New X-TEND™ Tracker Bar Extension That Mitigates Surface Damage to the Back of Cab

Santa Fe Springs, CA (January 17, 2018) Phillips Industries has released their new X-TEND™ tracker bar extension designed to prevent scuffs and marring on the back of the cab from swinging cables.

The X-TEND™ tracker bar extension 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 X-TEND™ requires minimal effort to install, and is available at a fraction of the cost of similar systems on the market. The 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.

The X-TEND™ is designed for use with tracker bars with a ¾” 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. It is available at Phillips’ exclusive distributors throughout North America.
