  Pintle Socket  -- Description

  • The pintle socket is designed as a 30" diameter bowl attached to a flat plate with flanges.  The plate and bowl connection is reinforced by eight rib sections around the circumference of the bowl.
  • The socket is approximately 20" tall with a foot print of 54" by 43" and is cast in low carbon steel.
