It is heavy and beefy in a very good way. It feels solid and sturdy. I can see no problem with this towing any heavy equipment. The installation on my specific SUV (2014 Ford Explorer) is not quite as simple as the directions state. Unless you have pro tools and a lift, I would not advise attempting it on your own. Lowering the exhaust and doing this with hand tools is almost impossible. However, any good shop should be able to do it in about 30 minutes.
