Ya know, I have 80 grand going down the road when I head out. Why would I balk at connecting it together properly for 25 hundred.

Yep, semi's laying on there sides is normal out here. We call it population control. Heck, years ago there was an 8 car line of railroad boxcars on the track out there by outback. A wind burst came and slap blew the lot of them over. Crazy.

YES! Please DO!

Here is a 38 page thread with many comparative pictures of the quality between the two. It also has posts from many former Hensley Arrow owners.

The most advanced Hensley hitch design

Here's a nice side by side of the hitch bars. Note the welds. Also note the way that the wedges are finished so that they match the hitch box for easier hitching and unhitching. Someplace there is a side by side of the hitch boxes that show how the 3P hitch box is finished in comparison to the Arrow. The corners of the Arrow hitch box are NOT consistent and the box eventually bends under load. The hitch box is completely redesigned and reinforced in the 3P.



If you'd like I can actually post more photos comparing the two, how the heads are fabricated, and the thickness of the material. I have 5 or 6 Hensley Arrows laying in the corner that I can photograph side by side.

You know I'm always lurking...

No need to read 38 pages... my customers and the product have more than spoken for the differences in the last 5 years.

No problem... as you've seen I'm pretty easy to contact because I'm never that far away.

Oh no doubt......i had fully intended to put a ha or pp on my new rig, and after weeks of reading decided on the pp.....but my setup now is towing just fine so thats on hold....

And hey, if ya look on page 3, i recommended the pp over the ha as well.....!!!!

Either way it always speaks volumes of a company when the leaders are out there to promote and defend their products.....
