The Cruisemaster™ DO65 is shown here with optional Mounting Bracket and Pintle Ring (available separately) offers longer life and quiet operation for your trailer than the standard NATO ring coupling and pintle hook. The key to this ingenious design is to separate the ball movement from the coupling. Unlike the normal pintle hook arrangement there is no play between the two allowing for quiet operation, reduced wear and longer life especially when operating under arduous conditions. In addition the coupling does not bind up when reversing in tight situations.
Previously known as the VC018, this coupling has a D-Value of 34.3kN (3.5T) and allows quiet operation in conjunction with a 75mm NATO ring. Please note: The DO65 Pintle Hook Adaptor Plate and the Pintle Ring are sold separately.
Like all Cruisemaster™ products the couplings range is designed and tested to perform under Australian Conditions. Each year, Cruisemaster™ vigorously remote area test new coupling designs and features with highly sophisticated Motec Data logging technology such as temperature sensors, G-force sensors, height sensors & comprehensive GPS tracking software.
