Those hitches are designed to pull a wagon or a tailer that has a steerable tougne such as a anhydrous tank, grain wagon, or a hay rake type of running gear. The ones that I have experience with were not designed to pull a trailer such as the one you listed. I believe there will be to much weight on the hitch. Your best bet would be to take the ag hitch off and out a real reciever hitch on or go to a goose neck hitch.

We've got three DMI spring loaded hitches here on the farm and I can't remember ever feeling any of the slide when pulling a bumper hitch trailer. They will have some give with farm implements where there is little or not hitch weight but it seems odd to me that it would do it with your trailer. The drawbar style DMI hitches are rated for 2,000lbs tongue weight and as much as your truck can pull for the overall trailer weight so they will generally hold up better than a reciever hitch.

I bought a 2000 Chevy 3500 HD flat bed that came with that hitch. I bought the truck for pulling a 16 ft trailer for Lawn Care and pull my John Deere 1010 and Allis Chalmers WD and ford 8n around. The hitch workd very well to keep the truck from jerking at all when you suddenly stop or take off. The only thing I don"t like about it is it is noise when the trailer doesn"t have alot of weight on it. I think I just need to tighten the springs on it. The hitch is very well strong enough to handle alot of weight. But this is the first I have ever used one or seen one. I like it. If anyone has any other comments on this hitch that would be great because this is the first I have seem this on this dicussing bord. Thanks
