Does anyone use their rotator for towing?

Recommended Posts

I recently posted this question to a FB Group dedicated to "Rotators Only"

 

Here are some of the responses I received and I will use initials though some may be identified by the images they included.

1075 Twin-steer, all-day every day but it stays local and focused on the larger stuff when possible.

When needed. Out at least Twice a week rowing

Our 1075 usually once or twice a week

 

ByA said:

50 ton every day, 70 ton never

 

Warren Driscoll said:

Our 1075 will go out only for cranes, pumpers, diesal pushers etc unless the others are busy. We see the rotator as a specialty unit and if its needed its going to be more$

Brian Bell said & added:

Most tows are done with the B&B or the 5130 but if it’s bigger or if n I feel like it I’ll take the rotator and tow with it.

Wow, more than 100 replies. That's amazing, it's also odd considering I have been trying for more than two months to give away a 36" TowMate Light Bar valued at over $1100.00
