I purchased this coupler about a year ago and so far it has worked flawlessly. It is easy to use, when locked it seems to be a very clean hook up and has performed well both summer and winter in Minnesota where the freezing weather and snow can be a problem. I will purchase another one for my other trailer it works so well.


Comments
Another year has gone by and I have nothing but good things to say about this coupler. I have several of these couplers and all of them are holding up well in our Minnesota winters. No corrosion or stickiness to them. The only maintainance we have done on them is to spray them occasionally with WD-40. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Excellent coupler. Much heaver than the one I took off. It's much easier to couple and uncouple from the truck. The coupler I replaced was rated at 14000 lbs and this new one is rated at 15000 lbs.



by:

i bought this product to replace a sticking coupler and it has worked out great for me! Very easy to use and the locking pin for extra safety is a plus.



by:

Good afternoon I found your products to be very good quality and I look forward to putting them through the paces considering I work at a training center. Your service reps were very product knowledgeable and answered all of questions and didn't push me toward something I don't want or need. I look forward to working with you guys again in the near future.



by:

This is the third time I have ordered from e-trailer. each time it was easy and quick to place an order and the products were delivered with in 4 to 5 days and were packed so as not to incur any shipping damage. I will use e- trailer again.



by:

bought these for use on on PTO driven implements. they are extremely heavy duty and well built, exactly as advertised. my only caution to someone using them for a similar use is to be aware the release mechanism sticks up a couple inches, and for use with a PTO it may make for close tolerances, depending on PTO location on equipment. other than being aware of that, you can't go wrong with these.



by:

I purchased this coupler because I have one on another trailer and I like the fact that the locking pin is attached. Additionally, it works so much easier than the bulldog coupler I am replacing plus you can lock it in the open position for attaching the vehicle.



by:

Great Service, expedited shipping at no additional charge. Love this hitch over my old bulldog.Highly recommend.



by:

This company is excellent! They have things I didn’t
even know I needed. Quick turn around time. Couldn’t be easier to get lights, hitches, jacks, brake controls (electric or electric over hydraulic). Been using this company for years and never had a problem.

I've had this product for a year and has been a great replacement for my much older design. The tonnage has proven tough, and has been pushed to it's limits with my loaded trailer. A great design for continual use. I have it on a 4k lb Walton dump trailer that has had up to 10k lb in it. Seemed like my truck was more concerned than my link to the trailer. Thanks eTrailer.



by:

One of my favorite couplers! Easy to use with gloves and positive locking with a hitch pin. Quick arrival as well.



by:

I like this coupler a lot. It is of a heavy duty cast material with a locking lever and a safety pin that's connected to the coupler so you don't lose it. Even came with mounting bolts, as shown. Very fast shipping. I'm impressed.



by:

Great, doing well after one year, will buy here again. Thanks

Great, doing just what it should be, have and will buy here again
