Review of Buyers Products Pintle Hitch 337PH55


Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at a 50 Ton 10-Hole Pintle Hook.The pintle hook is designed to cushion movement between the pintle hook and tow ring. This feature saves wear and tear on the parts, especially in sudden motion or braking situations. The pintle hook uses the vehicle's air system to hold the drawbar eye closely to reduce wear, absorb shock, and prevent uncoupling during operation. The hook is ideal for heavy duty applications such as trailers, semitrailers, and double and triple trailer operations, both off-road and over-the-road use.This product can also be used without the air chamber and plunger as a standard pintle hook. Those items would insert. You see we have the opening here at the back for those items to go into.

Those items are not included with this product, so please be aware of that and keep that in mind. Now, for off-road use, the load should be reduced by 25% and a swivel-type trailer drawbar should be used.When it comes to the construction of the unit, we're looking at an extremely strong iron and cast steel construction, and then the unit features a really nice durable corrosion-resistant powder-coated finish to resist rust and corrosion. With this product, the maximum gross trailer weight capacity is 100,000 pounds. Maximum tongue weight capacity is 20,000 pounds.I'm going to go over some measurements, but before I do that, I just want to show you how to open and close the latch mechanism. It does come with a pin and clip, so you remove that.

That's held on there with a lanyard, so you don't have to worry about misplacing that or losing that. Then you take the T-bar, move it out of the way, and lift it up, and then that opens the unit to couple with a lunette ring. Then when you're ready to close it, you lift this up, drop it, and secure it in that position by reinstalling the pin and clip. So, nice ease of use. Very easy to control, very easy to operate.A few measurements I want to go over with you real quick.

Now, I did take a measurement of the plate back here, so from top to bottom, the plate measured 10-5/8". From side to side, it has an overall width measurement of 7-9/16" at the widest point. Then from the very back of the unit to the very front of the unit, so from the back of the plate to the front of the unit, that gives us an overall depth of about 7-1/8". The mount holes on this unit, these are separated on center, side to side, right on 5". From this set right here to this set is 4-1/4 on center.

From this set to this set on center, up and down, is 6-5/8. From this middle set to this set right here is 2-3/8 on center, and then these are all separated on center, up and down, by 1-1/16".That's going to do it for today's look at the 50 Ton 10-Hole Pintle Hook.
