Title (EN) A TRAILER COUPLING
(FR) ATTELAGE DE REMORQUE
Abstract:
(EN) This invention relates to a coupling used to couple a draughting vehicle and a trailer. According to this invention the tow ball is mounted on a member which is fixed to a pivotal torque element, which is resiliently yieldable under torque and may be arranged in such a manner as to permit relative vertical movement of the ball on the pivoting axes of the torque element. This type of coupling allows a trailer to be towed over obstacles like gullies and steep inclines normally found in off-road terrain.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un attelage utilisé pour atteler un véhicule tiré et une remorque. Selon cette invention, la balle de remorquage est montée sur un élément fixé à un élément de couple pivot, ce dernier étant déformable de manière élastique sous l'action du couple et pouvant être conçu de manière à permettre un mouvement relativement vertical de la balle sur les axes pivotants de l'élément de couple. Ce type d'attelage permet de tracter une remorque à travers des obstacles, notamment les ravins et les dévalements rencontrés sur les terrains hors-route.
