New Hitch Is Here !!!

The UPS Lady just left our new Husky TS WDH, told her to just sit it by the steps and i would take it from there ( knowing how much it weighted ) she picked it up from the truck and carried it over to the base of the steps and headed on her way. Well, can't be that heavy, went to carry up to the porch and Nooooooooo way ( Going to get a gym membership ). So i unpacked it from the box, piece by piece, and must say i have never seen something packed so well, plywood on top and bottom of the box, in addition to every part packet in molded styrofoam, each piece up the stairs and into the house.

Have not installed yet but i must say, soooo impressed by the quailty, everything is solid steel, no stamped parts,every plate/ bracket, solid plate steel ,powder coating on all parts looks great. This thing is a Hoss, can't wait to hook it up !!!!!!

Jim & Pat

Enjoy that nice finish for now. The first time you put tension on those bars, one third of the coating will flake off. The coating isn't flexible like the bars are and it just crumbles off of the steel. If it doesn't, let me know and I will see if I can get some new bars under warranty with a covering that doesn't come off.
