Types of Towing Hitches

 

There are many forms of tow hitch, including a ball hitch, tow barpintle and lunette ring, three-pointfifth wheelcoupling, and drawbar, among others.

The tow-ball is popular for lighter loads, readily allowing swivelling and articulation of a trailer. A tow pin and jaw with a trailer loop are often used for large or agricultural vehicles where slack in the pivot pin allows the same movements. A pintle and lunette is a very heavy duty hitching combination used in construction and the military.
