HOW BALL WEIGHT AFFECTS YOUR VEHICLE
The ball weight is the static force the trailer tongue exerts on the hitch/tow ball. Proper trailer ball weight improves the vehicle and trailer towing experience by improving performance.
Not enough ball weight or force on the hitch/tow ball causes an increase in trailer sway from side to side, making it difficult to control. Conversely, too much ball weight or force on the hitch/tow ball could overload the rear tyres of the towing vehicle, pushing the rear end of the vehicle around.
This could also negatively affect the vehicle handling. Performance is impaired as you might not be able to go around corners and curves properly, and your vehicle may not stop quickly enough when you press the brake pedal.
Do you know your ball weight?
The Weigh Safe Towball effectively measures the ball weight of your towing load, improving the vehicle tow load balance and performance.
How it works:
Hitch ball provides connection point to your trailer’s coupler.
Pressure on the ball sends a reading to the built-in scale that measures ball weight (kgs). The system lets you know if your load needs to be adjusted before you tow.
Guidelines for proper towing state ball weight should be no less than 10% of gross trailer mass (GTM) and no more than 15% of GTM. For example, ball weight for a 3T trailer should be no less than 300 kg and no more than 450 kg.
Gross Trailer Mass (GTM) is the maximum load that your trailer is designed to carry as specified by its manufacturer. It is the combined weight of your trailer and its payload but does not including the tow ball mass (the downward weight). The GTM is usually displayed on the trailer or in the owner’s manual.
