Difference between Pintle Ring vs Tow Eye
What is the difference between a Pintle Ring and a Tow Eye? This is a question we often get asked.
Both components mount onto the trailer drawbar and have a toroidal-shaped hole that connects to the tow vehicle.
Pintle Rings are far more common on the Australian market and often seen in conjunction with Pintle Hooks. Tow Eyes, on the other hand, are used with Ringfeders or Orlandi couplings; commonly seen on large tow trucks.
ADR Approved Pintle Ring Coupling

D-Values for Tow Trucks
The D-Value is a crucial metric that assesses the horizontal force-handling capability of a truck and trailer combination.
For example, if you have a GVM of 8500kg and an ATM of 4500kg, the minimum D-Value required is 29kN.
