Holmes 600R Medium-Duty Rotator

Look what’s come back around.

Holmes opens up a whole new dimension in medium-duty towing and recovery with the Holmes 600R. A recovery boom with 16-tons of retracted capacity and 9,000 lbs of extended capacity that rotates 213° makes this the most versatile unit yet from the oldest and most trusted name in the industry. The “knee-boom” style underlift, with 89” of reach, easily handles a wide range of vehicles from autos through trucks. Contact your local Holmes distributor to learn more about how the Holmes 600R can increase your towing and recovery capabilities.

The 600R offers 32,000 lbs. of retracted boom capacity and 12,000 lbs. of extended boom capacity and it rotators 213 degrees (106.5° each side). A new feature over the previous version is the integration of a 12,000 lb.-rated Knee Boom Underlift. This newly redesigned knee boom underlift vastly expands the towing capabilities of the 600R.

The knee boom underlift offers towers an impressive 81 inches of reach from the tailboard of the wrecker to the centerline of the towing fork. The redesigned 600R underlift also provides towers with the flexibility of 41.5 inches of maximum horizontal height for towing in a variety of applications. Having standard equipment like the 4,000 lb. rated light-weight aluminum scoops, 6,000 lb. rated steel “L” arms, pivoting receivers, removable wheel retainers, 3 sets of cast steel towing forks, and a knee boom underlift with a fully extended rating of 9,000 lbs., makes the 600R ideal for towing everything from fixed frame inner-city trucks to passenger vehicles.

This Holmes unit comes standard with dual 15,000 lb.-rated planetary winches complete with spring tensioner and air free spool. There is also an option to add an 8,000 lb. drag winch for added recovery capability.
