In 1917, Ernest Holmes pioneered a new industry with his first twin-boom wrecker. Holmes has continued that pioneering tradition for more than 90 years with quality and innovation that towers have come to rely on. One of the most popular light-duty units ever built was the Holmes 440, which became a 25-year industry standard for economy and dependability. That reputation lives on with the new Holmes 440-SL, a no-nonsense auto loader designed to tackle your towing needs. An 8,000-pound recovery boom, 8,000-pound winch and an auto load system rated at 4,000 pounds with in-cab controls for quick and easy operation make the 440-SL ideal for light-duty towing. The carbon-steel modular body features two spacious tool compartments for equipment storage. For a quick, reliable and economical answer to your towing needs, check out the Holmes 440-SL.
