Holland USA, a division of The Holland Group, has announced the release of the PH-210, PH-310 and PH-410 Series Pintle Hooks, designed to offer customers new, lighter weight, more durable designs. All feature a new, true one-hand latch operation with an automatic secondary lock and no chains or cotter pins: The new stronger latch is designed for more resistance to dirt and snow impaction.
Additionally, all three models come equipped with new air chamber options with different plunger rod lengths, and are available without the air chamber and plunger or with the plunger alone and no air chamber. They can be used as an air-cushioned pintle hook or as a standard rigid pintle hook without the air cushion.
The PH-210 and PH-410 Series pintle hooks, respectively, replace the PH-200 and the PH-400 Series. The PH-210 maintains the same 4-bolt mounting pattern and is rated for 18,000 lbs. maximum vertical load and 90,000 lbs. maximum gross trailer weight. The PH-410 comes with a 6-bolt mounting pattern and is rated for 20,000 lbs. maximum vertical load and 100,000 lbs. maximum gross trailer weight.
The PH-310 Series is a new model made of the same steel alloy as the PH-210 with two key additions. First, the PH-310 is designed with a six-bolt mounting configuration; and secondly, it has increased capacities of 20,000 lbs. maximum vertical load and 100,000 lbs. maximum gross trailer weight.
The last new introduction, the PH-411, replaces the former PH-400-H series. Again, the new mounting structure, which matches the bolt pattern of the PH-400-H, only requires six bolts instead of eight while still maintaining capacities of 20,000 lbs. maximum vertical load and 100,000 lbs. maximum gross trailer weight. The PH-411 incorporates all the changes common with the PH-410.
