JOST to bring Rockinger towing hitches to 2019 Brisbane Truck Show

Equipment specialist, JOST Australia, will exhibit the latest in Rockinger towing hitch technology at this year’s Brisbane Truck Show.

Rockinger towing hitches are renowned for their versatility and reliability, according to JOST. With a strong focus on maximising safety, Rockinger has developed safety features like the drawbar turn angle warning system with a display in the driver’s cabin to provide protection from shunting damage to couplings, drawbars and the rear of the vehicle.

JOST will be bringing some of its award-winning products from the Rockinger portfolio to Brisbane including new and improved features for the RO*500 towing hitch. Favoured for its low-maintenance design and release lever technology, the RO*500 will be displayednas a sensor coupling, equipped with a remote display and pivoting angle warning display.

The  RO*500 is ideally suited to fixed drawbar applications such as pig trailers with a download rating up to 2.5-tonnes and hinged drawbar applications such as dog trailers through to multiple road train combinations up to 285kN.
JOST claims all Rockinger couplings and towing hitches go through a rigorous testing process to ensure that they are of the highest quality to withstand the Australian climate and conform to Australian Standards.

Rockinger is also renowned for its agricultural division, which produce ladder systems that house a wide range of implement connection points such as the  RO560  50mm tow coupling well suited for farming and tractor applications. Using the ladder system, the tow coupling can be changed over with a Rockinger 80mm ball, piton or even a smaller 40mm coupling.

JOST Australia will be displaying these products at their Brisbane Truck Show stand, located in the foyer at stand number 078. Attendees are encouraged to view the displays and consult with the team of experts on all things towing related.

The Brisbane Truck Show will be held at the Brisbane Convention Centre from 16-19 May.
