I have a class 5 XDR hitch and I can pull 16,000 lbs with it.
I haul a 2004 Trailtech bobcat trailer loaded with various machines-farm tractors,skid steer loaders,ect.
Great hitch so far had it since August and no problems.
dont know haven't weighed it, i know the hoe weighs in right at 21,000. It's heavy i can tell ya that. haha i just run it. I never go too far but i have been down I65 and US421or 29. NO LOOKERS if you know what i mean.
i delt with a company close to me which is far from you but i think mine was like 180 and my bros was like 195 the shortbed cost more, but NO DRILLING like the towbeast. If i were you i would call putnam and get a dealers number close to ya. or i can give you this guys number and im sure he can ship it to ya. let me know good luck.
Dad got one from Eagle Custom. I broke his hitch about 5 months after he bought the Truck. I as pulling 2 NH3 wagons that weigh around 22-24k. It twisted the hitch down. Chevy replaced it and then he went and bought a Heavier one. The spare stills goes up under. I can't remember what it is I'll look and see.
