Our friendly and reliable team will take the time to thresh out the details of your towing requirements so that you will get the most suitable tow bar fitting in Melbourne for your vehicle. Deciding on your choice of tow bar begins with understanding the basic tow bar class that will be most suitable to the load that you will be pulling. There are three tow bar classes: Standard Class 2; Class 3 Light Duty Hitch; and, Class 4 Heavy Duty Hitch Receiver. Each class is suitable for a particular range of towing applications and there are several towbar options available within each class.
Standard Class 2. Mainly used in passenger cars and small SUVs for light duty towing of up to 1600kgs. These usually come with a flange for attaching the trailer ball mount. It also provides a secure mounting base for other accessories like a bike rack.
Class 3 Light Duty Hitch. Very similar in design and application to the Standard Class 2, but the biggest difference is the hitch receiver where you slide in a trailer ball mount that has a “tongue”, which usually fits a 40mm by 40mm hitch. The trailer ball mount is kept in place by a high tensile pin and retaining clip that makes it easy to remove the ball when it is not needed.
This is a very popular type because of the ability to remove the ball mount when not needed. The hitch system gives you the ability to preserve and protect your ball mount when not in use. At the same time many car owners love the aesthetic factor of not having an unsightly ball protruding at the back of the vehicle.
Class 4 Heavy Duty Hitch Receiver. The Class 4 is the same in most aspects to the Class 3 hitch except that it is usually used for medium to heavy towing requirements of anywhere from 1200kgs up to 4500kgs. When you are towing a large caravan, a boat, a car trailer, or a horse float this is the tow bar class that you should be considering. These can be fitted onto large passenger cars, SUVs and all manner of 4-wheel drive vehicles.
