The SUPER HITCH® Hero 15k is rated at 1,500 pounds tongue weight and 15,000 towing capacity when coupled with weight distribution and 1,000 pounds tongue weight and 10,000 pounds towing capacity without weight distribution.
The SUPER HITCH® hero is created specifically for half-ton trucks including Ford trucks. The capacity is set at a high level due to the increasing tow capacities on half-ton trucks. So the only limitation to what you can tow is your truck ratings and imagination!
Trailer Hitch Part Number: F1009H
Trailer hitch towing system failure from inadequate towing system tongue weight ratings is the most common cause of accidents related to trailer hitch failure. The SUPER HITCH® Series is the only hitch line in the industry with hardened reinforced hitch pin locations. The reinforcement prevents what is elongation wear commonly known as "egging" at the site. Once the hitch pin locations egg out, the hitch is damaged and may need to be replaced.
This companion hitch system allows for added strength and use of a high capacity receiver hitch extension along with the allowance of accessories to be inserted into the top receiver. Instead of creating a SUPER HITCH® design that replaced the factory installed hitch from Ford, Torklift created a hitch to work with the design that they created. Thus, the Ford companion SUPER HITCH® Hero was born. Now, Ford owners who wanted to tow behind their truck, even with overhang, can now use the extra-safe and secure SUPER HITCH® and SuperTruss combo with a double receiver of both factory and Torklift hitches. The SUPER HITCH® line is vehicle specific with most applications being no-drill. The SUPER HITCH® Towing Series includes the SuperTruss Extension, Everest Weight Distribution System and ball mount accessories. This American-made product stands at the pinnacle of quality and is also backed by the Torklift International Legendary Lifetime Warranty.
