A brand new trail is being blazed by Northern Indiana’s GEN-Y Hitch this week as it unveils its industry-changing, frame mounted, bolt-on torsion suspension hitch.
GEN-Y, which is known for having the toughest, most versatile drop hitches on the market, is upping the ante again with a hitch that not only deals with the up and down of towing, but the forward inertia as well, according to a story by NATDA.
“It’s not even a game changer…it’s a new game altogether,” GEN-Y National Sales Manager Joel Helmuth says. "The Torsion Suspension Hitch is taking the inertia out between truck and trailer by up to 90 percent which greatly decreases wear and tear on your vehicle and trailer, not to mention drastically improves your ride quality and decreases driver fatigue.”
