We are proud to introduce the approach plate roller guide attachment for added recovery capabilities on 10, 12, & 16-Series car carriers.

Miller Industries Car Carrier Recoveries

After more than a year of field-testing, we are able to provided tow operators and car carrier owners with a recovery solution providing 180 degrees of light-duty recovery capability at the back of the carrier.  

Approach Plate Roller Guide from Miller Industries

By using the center of the approach plate on Series 10, 12, & 16 steel carrier beds, this new roller guide attachment allows for easy access with quick set-up and usage on the existing 2018 and newer car carrier platform.

This new solution attaches to the underside of the approach plate and locks into place at the center chain lock hole.

Quick Attachment for Road Side Recoveries with your Rollback

A 1-inch machined round-head bolt secures the roller guide to the threaded hole in the approach plate. 

Roller Guide Installs Easily by Hand

Providing a rigid securement to the carrier bed makes this roller guide ideal to tackle the upward pulling forces associated with rollover recoveries.  A low-mounted horizontal roller enables downward pulling off the back of the bed as well.

Fabricated Steel Construction with Galvanized Coating

The attachment is designed to be used with 3/8” and 7/16” wire rope and it is rated for 3,500 lbs. of line pull.  The roller guide attachment is engineered to the highest standards of durability, and is constructed of fabricated steel with Zinc plating for corrosion resistance. 

Multiple Rollers for Maximum Recovery Capability

This car carrier attachment utilizes the newer style approach plate with a bolt hole adjacent to the center rear chain lock for proper mounting.  Older steel carriers that do not have the bolt hole can be retrofitted by simply tapping a specific size hole at a precise location on the approach plate.  Our vast global network of distributors are equipped and ready to assist with the retrofit process.
