Broken Arrow, Oklahoma / June 8, 2022 – PACCAR Winch proudly introduces the newest addition to the BRADEN Utility Bumper lineup. The UBL Bumper features a revolutionary lightweight aluminum shell with a heavy-duty steel super-structure to accommodate both TR12 and TR15 Planetary Recovery Winches. The system was specifically developed for direct bolt-on installation on 2017-2022 Ford F350, F450 and F550 trucks to offer premium self-recovery capabilities for the popular Super Duty vehicles used in a wide variety of field applications.
The modular design of the UBL Utility Bumper System allows for fast and easy installation without the need for custom mounting brackets or welding. Depending on the TR Series Recovery Winch selected, the system can deliver 12,000 lb (5,443 kg) or 15,000 lb (6,804 kg) rated line pull to ensure fleet vehicles can get out of any situation they might accidentally get into.
Boasting a 45% weight reduction over conventional designs, the UBL is by far the lightest utility bumper system offered by BRADEN at an impressive 275 lb (125 kg). Fleet vehicle operators can expect increased ground clearance, improved turning radius and reduced front end component wear with improved aesthetics compared to traditional utility winch bumpers.
The UBL is not only lighter, but also stronger due in part to its reinforced steel sub-frame with integrated tow-eyes for maximum pulling reliability. The system includes a standard dual work and flood light package. Both hydraulic planetary winch options are wire and synthetic rope compatible and can be ordered with optional wireless control for maximum in-field versatility.
