What gives you that idea? It's rated for 500lbs tongue weight at the ball. Physics limits it's fulcrum at 130lbs when extending a few feet from it. Most other hitches (unless engineered for it) will have comparable limitations on the amount of torque they can sustain at distance from the receiver. It's also why they don't make 3ft long tow bars with tow ball on the end. It would dramatically drop the allowable tongue weight. The mechanics chapter of any physics text can help you with the details of leverage and torque on a fulcrum.There's no way in hell that's a true Class 3 hitch! The first clue is only a supported weight of 130 lbs. Why bother at that point? Get the standard hitch for peace of mind.
