What Does Using TorkLift SuperTruss Hitch Extension Reduce Hitch Capacity by


I am installing a torklift super hitch magnum with a 21” super hitch extension. I understand all the published capacities. My question is in regards to the additional axel weight of say a 600 lbs tongue weight extended 21” further from original factory hitch. Basically the super truss is acting as a lever Increasing the weight not by 600lbs, but by some factor of 600 lbs. on the rear axel. The super truss is the lever and the axel is a fulcrum. Does super truss have any calculations to show real force increases on the rear axel?

That specific of info is not available from Torklift. The best info they have is to state that when you use the # TLE1548 with a SuperHitch the tongue weight is reduced to 600 lbs without a weight distribution system or 1,200 lbs with a weight distribution. Typically the Superhitch would have over double that capacity so it effectively cuts it by around 50 percent give or take.
