For heavy-duty towing applications, a pintle hitch is the tool for the job. These trailer hitches are only for serious towing jobs of 10,000 pounds or more. Reese, Hidden Hitch, Draw-Tite, Colibert, and Curt are a few of the dependable manufacturers of pintle hitches. Before beginning any towing job, make sure to review the vehicle and trailer owner's manuals. A pintle hitch looks like the letter "C" from the side or like a giant padlock. They are generally used in construction and agricultural applications. They're designed for hauling weights of 10,000 pounds or more. The way a pintle hitch works is that the item being towed rests on the lower half of the "C" and the top half of the "C" raises to allow access and lowers to lock the item inside the "C" which then looks more like an "O." Pintle hitches are constructed of durable materials including stainless steel and chrome.
