“With our unique design, we not only provide one of safest hitches on the market but also one that is simple and easy to use,” said Paul Choquette, company director of operations.
Both BXR fifth-wheel hitches feature a funnel-shaped hitch head helping guide the kingpin into place. The design significantly reduces false hookup and trailer drop rate, Blue Ox said, as well as 360-degree nesting around the kingpin.
The hitches include a dual articulating head moving front, back, and side-to-side. The two-piece designs weigh 122 pounds and have three adjustable heights: 17, 18, and 19 inches. Both have been tested for safety with SAE J2638 standards.
