Any down side to going to heavy with the bars? Thanks in advance for help and input.
Go with the 1200# as the 1400# will beat you up. My max is 7402#. New, I bought my 1200 chain type WDH with the TT. Look at the stuff you are loading and add up the weight plus or minus. Mine has a cargo capacity of 2823#. No way I am loading 1.2 tons of junk into it.
I love the Equalizer 4Pt that I have now and no longer have the white knuckles to prove it.
