Toughness for heavy loads and difficult road conditions

VBG 590VR-3 - Trailer coupling

Part No.

This coupling is for centre-axle trailers, dollies and trailers with an ISO Ø 50 mm drawbar eye. A totally unique design using spring compression elements where the material is so rigid that the drawbar eye is guided in during coupling, while also being sufficiently elastic to allow angular displacement of 90 degrees with a fixed coupling mouth. The well-proven attachment package, with its large bearing surfaces, has been adapted for large vertical forces. VBG 590VR-3, with an encapsulated attachment package, is the choice for those who drive under tough road conditions, e.g. forestry, building and construction transport.

Power actuator – for maximum safety and comfort

A coupling with the VBG Power Actuator (PA) is opened and closed by means of a double-acting, pneumatically-controlled torsion device operated by a manual valve, with no need to reach underneath vehicle to access the coupling. This ergonomic solution is the most comfortable, and significantly simplifies coupling and decoupling. It saves you time and reduces the risk of injury.



The coupling is opened by hand and closes by spring force. This version does not require any additional components.


You can always supplement manual coupling with air-assisted opening power actuator (PA unit).

Two versions of the coupling mouth are available, which means the coupling can be modified to meet your needs to an even greater extent.


Short lips make coupling in tight spaces easier.


An extended upper lip facilitates connection and provides extra protection for your power actuator.

The VBG 590VR-3 enhances the driver’s manoeuvrability and makes connection easier. The coupling can be opened and closed irrespective of the drawbar angle. With many connections and disconnections performed each day, this provides greater comfort, major time savings and safer shunting.

The superior VBG quality extends the long service life and offers more carefree ownership. The reliable design minimises unexpected downtime and costly delays. The modular design, with interchangeable mechanisms, allows any repairs to be performed swiftly with few installation steps, which saves workshop time and ensures safety.

Tip: If you supplement with VBG MechMatic, lubrication and cleaning are performed completely automatically. This saves time and trouble for the driver and reduces service and maintenance costs.
