RTR-70 is Metro Tow Trucks’ largest rotator. Designed for extreme recovery operations, this rotator is capable of handling anything that you throw at it. The RTR-70 will distinguish you from the competition when trying to secure contracts or pulling up to an accident scene.

Our RTR-70 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 rotator 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 rotator the way you want it. Don't hesitate to inquire, standard and customized rotators are surprisingly inexpensive.
