About us

It all started when Shane Murray needed a light-duty tow bar for his lifestyle block tractor but could not find one anywhere to buy.  So the good old Kiwi ingenuity kicked into gear and out came the welder and a can of spray paint, and presto, one of the simplest tow bars ever built, but apparently a first of its kind. 


A few hundred tow bars later Shane was challenged by one of his good friends, Ross Troughton, to take this concept further, and together they founded Orange Country Engineering Ltd.  As they say, “the rest is history”.

Today Orange Country Engineering Ltd again solely owned by Shane Murray design and manufactured to the highest standard Kiwi-made Tow Bars for tractor three point linkages, from the trusted original T2 - 2000kg model through to our new comprehensive 2nd Generation Quick Hitch tow-bar range, capable of handling anything the Kiwi cow cocky can throw at it!

We hope you enjoy our product as much as we have enjoyed creating it.
