If you have had a traditional pitch for all your towing and hauling purposes for quiet some time and are looking for an improvement over it, there is a very cutting-edge hitch that is just right for you. This is commonly known as the pintle hitch. This hitch is quite popular with people who have been operating towing trucks or trailer vehicles for a few years now. This means it is for someone who is very comfortable with taking the hitch in his hand and being a one man army when it comes to purchasing, installing and maintaining all the needs of his vehicle.
You can easily install this yourself and save on the money too as the installation by a third party can prove to be an expensive affair. Not only in remote areas, but even if you have some needs to take care of at your ranch or farm, this hitch with either of its configuration will prove to be sufficient for it. There is a good range of accessories available which further enhance the usability of this hitch in multiple circumstances. Out of the two configurations, the hook is more elastic but this elasticity can only prove fruitful if you have a certain level of expertise at hauling.
