    Default Small trailer coupler maximum pull weight ?

    Hi guys, i would like to know what is the maximum weight i can pull with the standard small coupler that i can buy from Midas.
    On the the coupler it says maximum 750 kg. But does it mean static force or total pull weight.
    Please enlighten me as i dont know much of this.
    Thanks in advance.

    That would be max 750 Kg towing weight.

    It means that 750kg is the max your towed vehicle may weigh on a weigh bridge. If you want to do more than that you will need to uprate to braked axle and a braked coupler.

    The Midas goodies have been tested to a higher spec but legally you are limited to 750.
    Check your drivers license if you go over

    To maybe spell this out better. The maximum axle weight (GVM) that you may have on a trailer that is unbraked, is 750kgs. So this is a coupler for an unbraked trailer which can only go up to 750 kgs.


    If you stay within the build rules, this coupler is sufficient for your needs.
