The capability of operating at high working temperatures of up to 440 C for relatively long periods without showing signs of fade.
Further rearward movement of the tractor towards the trailer will swing the jaw round until it traps and encloses the kingpin. The 26 Fig. 22 (a and b) Fifth wheel coupling assembly jaws on either side.
