BLUE OX TOWBAR RECALL

Automatic Equipment Manufacturing Company is voluntarily recalling its Blue Ox RangeFinder III tow bar, model BX4335.

The company has determined the product may develop cracks in the mounting brackets and, after time, the failure of these brackets could cause separation of the towed vehicle and the towing vehicle.  The units involved in this recall were produced between June, 1997 and October, 1999.

Automatic Equipment will replace the BX4335 tow bar with its Acclaim tow bar, model BX4330, at no charge to the customer.  All tow bars must be returned to Automatic Equipment Manufacturing Co. for evaluation and disposal.
