Metro Tow Trucks FB-5 Carrier FB-5

More than a Start

Our FB-5 is our entry level unit but it’s much more than that. With a strong 3.6 ton deck, you can carry a lot more than the usual 2 ton trucks. It is a great way to add units to your fleet at a low price. It will allow you to carry light duty trucks with ease.

Our FB-5 is over-built to ensure durability and long-life; this will protect your investment and keep you on the road longer and hauling more vehicles faster. Owners and fleet operators alike will quickly discover that this light duty carrier is the best value that's available on the market today.

As with all Metro Tow Trucks, customization is the order of the day and we'll build your carrier the way you want it. Don't hesitate to inquire, standard and customized carriers are surprisingly inexpensive.
