440 Series

A Combination of Tradition & Technology

 

The Holmes 440 series is built in the same tradition that has made Holmes the most recognized name in the towing and recovery industry. 
The low profile 8 ton recovery boom is equipped with twin lift cylinders for greater stability and the eight thousand lb. winches are mounted directly to the recovery boom to ease operation of cables when lowering and elevating the boom.  The body comes standard with features such as an integrated driver's side tool compartment to help prevent rust, removable access covers for easy maintenance and rear "L" arm storage tubes for easier and quicker hookups.  The six function wheel lift provides both independent tilt and 4,000 lbs. of lifting capacity at full extension.
Built in the Holmes tradition, the 440 series with its affordable price will provide you with years of dependable and economical service.
                         Holmes, a name you can trust in the towing and recovery industry.
