Established in 1976 by Jon Kay, Torklift Central has always been, at our core, a hitch shop. Starting with one bay and one welder, we are known as “the hitch people.” Not only do we make our own line of hitches (the EcoHitch and SuperHitch), but we specialize in making custom fabricated hitches at our shop.

We had a customer come into the shop with a request: to make a custom hitch for his trailer and add a receiver to the front of the trailer. These modifications will make it easier to store the trailer and lock it up for safety while it’s in storage! Below are the photos of the before and final product. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed doing the custom fab hitch and work!

When it comes to custom fabrication, we have you covered at Torklift Central. Not only do we have high tech facilities and design programs to make your custom hitch ideas come to life, we also have a highly-experienced team that can do all sorts of welding including Stick, MIG and TIG.

We also have CNC and CAD plasma tables to cut out your materials, or our state-of-the-art WaterJet that can cut very fine and smooth pieces.

Contact us today using the information below with your interest in a Torklift Central custom hitch, custom trailer fabrication or more – we’d love to work with you!
