Abstract: front page image
(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.
