Most 2 in receivers are rated at 10,000# IF used with an equalizer hitch but drop to #5000 with a regular ball mount. Most people totally ignore this and load them until they either break off or bend the frame where they are attached. I have replaced or repaired dozens and dozens in the last 40 years. Use common sense.

Fixed 2 last year that were pulling loaded Fertilizer Buggies, One on a 450 Ford hauling a TL 90 New Holland. One pulling a lowboy and a compact John Deere and a rotary Cutter doing 50 Miles an hour, no brakes on trailer, light changed and driver slammed on the brakes and the hitch tube broke and the whole rig ended up in the median. I could write a book.
