Comments about Reese Class II Step Bumper Receiver Hitch:

It can be used for very light load trailer without 1/2" spacers. When I towed a trailer with a 600 lbs Zero Turn Mower for 20 miles, I was nerve wrecked due to the impacted of the trailer to the truck on poor paving road. The hitch was attached to the truck bumper with only 2 bolts with 1/2" spacers. I am a Mechanical Engineer with 25 year experience. I know for sure that 2 bolts will fail soon due to impacted fatigue. The hitch was removed from the truck, and I plan to use this hitch on the mower tractor.
