VBG 590VR-2 - Trailer coupling

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-2, with an encapsulated attachment package, is the choice for those who drive under tough road conditions, e.g. forestry, building and construction transport.

The VBG 590VR-2 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.
