Soon to be released onto the market & a new design in off road
hitches is the Ozhitch from Norm Hudson. The new patented
designed Ozhitch is a simple drop in hitch with a self aligning cradle to
position the two halves.
One of the biggest advantages of the Ozhitch is in the ease
of connection. All you need do is lower the jockey wheel and the
self aligning cradle positions the two halves of the hitch for a
perfect alignment to insert the pin. There are two locking
mechanisms and they only take one hand to operate leaving the other
hand to operate the jockey wheel height.
hitch's design allows for 85 degrees of movement up and 70 degrees in
a downward direction
while allowing a full 360 degrees swivel. Shock absorption is
provided on all connecting surfaces by the use of Ertalon
bushings, an extreme quality type of nylon. The low profile and side
entry of the pin will allow the rear doors on station wagons
and utilities to swing clear of the highest point of the hitch. The Ozhitch is hot dip galvanising
for superior corrosion protection and boasts a 3.5 tonne capacity.
The Ozhitch will
be available very soon with an introductory price of $287. Details
