Tow Ball mounted winch

Recommended Posts

I am particularly interested in the answer to q1., which seems to suggest that one cannot tow a 3500kg trailer with, for example, a lorry.

OK thanks for the replies - tow ball mounting is out, will be looking for a decent winch bumper unless there is a way to modify the standard one to house the winch where it would be on a winch bumper?

thanks!

Q1 = B: 3432kg

putting a 3500kg trailer behind a 7500kg truck would be D = 23.41KN thus the towing hitch would need at lest a D value or Dc value of 23.41KN at 3500kg trailer weight.
