WS 3000 D+Z Winterhoff ball hitch with stabiliser
What is a ball hitch?
Ball hitches are extremely important devices that performs a number of functions. The safety of driving and using the trailer in various weather conditions depends on the quality of the hitch, its purpose and the systems used.
Improved friction lining system eliminates swaying and swaying. As a result, it provides a safe and relaxing ride with a trailer with a total weight of up to 3,000 kg.
Ball hitch 3000 kg Winterhoff WS3000 - specifications and technical data
It meets the requirements of ISO 11555-1, thanks to which a vehicle with a trailer coupled with WS 3000 can travel at a speed of 100 km / h. The hitch is equipped with a wear indicator of the friction linings.
- Maximum pressure on the ball: 150 kg

Activating the stabilizing handle presses two friction linings on the left or right side of the vehicle's tow ball. The coupling and stabilizing handles are separate from each other and can be operated with just one hand. The wear indicator monitors the condition of the friction linings and the coupling mechanism.

How to choose the right ball hitch for a trailer?
First of all, the ball hitch is selected first according to the GVW and the type of trailer. Ball couplings can be divided into dedicated for light trailers and intended for heavy car trailers. As part of this division, the hooks differ in terms of construction, built-in stabilization and traction control systems or even built-in anti-theft devices. In the case of heavy trailers, the GVM of which exceeds 750 kg, much greater forces and loads affect them, which clearly affects the wear of the hitch and driving safety.
