Tow Hitch Ultimate Test -You wont believe the results

Author: James Don  Date Posted:16 February 2022 

Not every company likes to share their test data but it always makes for an interesting read.

Below is the Carbon MegaPro Hitch mounted to the test machine at Mechtest in Brisbane. 

You will notice that the hitch is still in one piece with a slight deformation from the mounting pin bending then eventually snapping in half. 

Before the pin snapped it saw 19,833kgf (almost 20 Tonne!) 

Now, at an educated guess, we will probably see figures in the high 35 to 40 Tonne range if we are able to get a pin to hold up in the test.
