Towing heavy trailers and caravans can place undue pressure on a vehicle, particularly on the rear axle. If the weight is not properly distributed the rear of the car tends to sag, resulting in the front wheels losing contact with the road. This loss in contact decreases steering control and breaking ability, significantly impacting safety. The added stress also causes undue wear and tear on tyres, increases fuel consumption, misaligns headlights and can cause trailers to sway – further impacting a vehicle’s performance and safety.Installing a Weight Distribution Hitch provides support, helping to redistribute the weight more evenly across the vehicle and trailer axles.
The Milford Ultra Load Weight Distribution Hitch is designed and manufactured to alleviate the stress on the rear of the vehicle, resulting in a far safer towing experience. With built in features to ensure full weight distribution, hassle free reversing and quiet operation paired with a rugged and stylish powder coated finish the Milford Weight Distribution Hitch is the ultimate in correct load management.When choosing a Weight Distribution Hitch it is important to match the weight category of the hitch to your towing needs. If the weight category is too low the hitch will apply inadequate force, which results in insufficient levelling.
Conversely, if the weight category greatly exceeds your requirements, the over rated system will apply too much load to the vehicle.Milford now offer Weight Distribution Hitches in three different weight categories, so you will always find the perfect solution. The lightest option suits Medium Duty applications up to 270 kg (600lb). If you require a higher weight category our Heavy Duty hitch is suitable for loads up to 360kg (800lb). Finally, for very heavy loads we have developed a new, Super Heavy Duty hitch, which is rated up to 545 kg (1200lbs).
