2000kg Override Couping - 50mm - Plated - Body Only
Part Number: 614027PL
0000kg Override Couping - 50mm - Plated - Body Only
Comes with a 1000kg Rated Spring for better braking on smaller braked trailers.
The principal of this type of coupling is a sliding shaft attached to the tow ball housing of the coupling. As the tow vehicle slows down the force of deceleration is passed through the coupling shaft and pushed either on a mechanical linkage (for mechanical brakes) or on a linkage connected to a hydraulic cylinder providing hydraulic pressure to a braking system (hydraulic brakes).
This type of coupling is most efficient if the ball load is not excessive and when load levelling devices are not used, as these devices impede the smooth operation of the coupling, ultimately impeding the braking performance.
When reversing, the attached collar would be fitted to prevent inadvertant brake application. The collar should be removed from the shaft during normal towing use.
For Hydraulic brake applications, this coupling would be fitted with the AL-KO Hydraulic brake conversion kit (AL-KO Part Number 610941).
For mechanical brake applications, this coupling would be fitted with the AL-KO Mechanical Override Brake Plate (AL-KO Part Number 614051).
This coupling is suitable for 50mm tow balls only.
Rated to 2000kg.
