Hayman Reese Hitch Parts
Hayman Reese have been Australia’s number 1 towing brand for over 60 years and that is why they back their products with a Hayman Reese Lifetime Warranty. Weight Distribution Systems (WDS) restore the geometry of the tow vehicle (such as a ute) to its natural state. A WDS transfers the weight from the rear wheels of the ute to two places: the front wheels of the ute and the wheels of the trailer. To put it simply, a good WDS will level the link between trailer and ute so it is in parallel alignment to the road.
When towing a trailer, the trailer’s total ball weight is applied to the rear of your vehicle. When this happens, the front suspension of your vehicle is raised because of the added rear weight. Towing like this can cause excess swaying of your trailer, reduced steering and breaking responsiveness, less traction and headlights that beam upwards instead of down onto the road in front of you. Over time, you may also experience reduced fuel economy and increased tyre wear (especially on the rear tyres). Hayman Reese have a number of WDS’s available to improve your control over your vehicle while towing and reducing the amount of sway you experience.
Suitable for towing larger and heavier trailers (such as twin axle caravans), the Standard Heavy Duty WDS relies on heavier gauge spring bars to handle the heavier load. This WDS has a ball weight capacity of between 275Kg and 365Kg and has 30” hook style spring bars with integrated cams.
