Husky Towing Products announced that it is now offering four different weight distribution and sway control kits that include the hitch, sway control, trailer and sway control balls and all the parts needed to install the system in one package.
According to a press release, the trailer ball and sway control ball are pre-assembled and torqued to the weight distribution hitch head. The lift chains are also pre-installed, which saves service personnel time searching for parts and installing the system.
Kits are available in four tongue weight ratings: 600 pounds with a 2-inch ball; 800 pounds with a 2-inch ball; 800 pounds with a 2 5/16-inch ball; and 1200 pounds with a 2 5/16-inch ball. Other features include:
• Lift brackets are designed so they will not hit propane bottles and storage compartments on the nose trailers that do not extend over the edge of the frame.
• The Dual Pad Friction Sway Control System features pads that are asbestos free and are ¼-inch thick for longer life.
• Both the hitch and the sway control are heavy-duty steel construction with rust and corrosion resistant finishes.
Husky hitches are rigorously tested for quality, durability and safety, including a salt fog test to check for corrosion resistance and a fatigue test to ensure durability. Husky Towing Products tests its hitches to comply with V-5 and SAE J684 standards to ensure towing safety.
“Only after rigorous testing on the test stand and in real-world conditions do we release a product for manufacturing,” says Dennis Castagnola, executive vice president, manufacturing. “Once in production, we test samples from each production run to ensure that we are providing our customers with quality towing products that meet or exceed their expectations.”
