Recovery vehicles, towing means, cranes, etc......

Hello to all :D; after seen a picture in the web, a little query.....................

Towing axle!

A Kfz 13 "Adler" had suffered a car accident along the highway Magdeburg, nevertheless the interesting thing is that towing axle (abschleppachse) shown here. More detail on it?
