Secure hitch coupling at towage as a guarantee of reliability and safety
Towing device for trailers and semitrailers, as well as for damaged vehicles, solve one of the key issues that arise during the operation of vehicles. Development and installation of this equipment must be carried out in compliance with various mandatory standards and technological requirements.
We should mention that this process — being carried out on strictly scientific basis — is not within the power of any company. Besides the appropriate equipment necessary for this operation, the experience of the personnel, the clever use of the numerous guides are also required.
Types of devices
The hitch can be of different types and modifications. Our company performs the perfect installation of both the towing coupler and fifth wheel mounting. The difference between the two terms lies in the form of the towed vehicle. In the latter case (the use of fifth wheel) implies the towing of semitrailers.
A complete and reliable operation of equipment directly relates to the installation technology — the slightest deviations in the process can lead not only to disappointment (spontaneous uncoupling), but also to fatal consequences.
Being fully aware of the significance of the work, specialists of the factory very carefully perform the process of installation at all its stages.
Brief history of modern couplings
Fifth wheel for trucks and trailer towing coupler replaced the draft hook, previously widely used in our country. Inconvenience of towing was obvious, but for a long time there hadn’t been taken any measures for the development of new kinds of coupler. Draft hook implied the presence of play, by reason of which there were constant bumps of metal parts. This led to unduly rapid wear.
Furthermore, not every driver was able to accurately get along with the object, which had to be towed — it required extraordinary skills.
Modern couplings for trucks are free from such weaknesses — coupling is performed in a matter of minutes, without undue efforts on the part of drivers.
The users (customers) of our products should be aware that long product life is ensured not only by perfect manufacture (installation) process, but by proper usage of it as well: drawbar hitch for trucks rather quickly breaks down when towing objects which weight is much higher than estimated. Fifth wheel coupling for trucks in these cases is getting deformed and looses its functionality.
To install such equipment a number of conditions required to be complied with — only in this case the device will serve you long and steady. Contacting our factory will relieve you from lots of related problems — the company’s reputation, by definition, excludes the slightest claim to quality indicators.
