Just how strong is the receiver (hitch)???

904 7
A couple coworkers have some horses and their access to a tractor to move around the big round bales has gone away. They're looking for an alternative to muscling these things around.

I ran across this:

The bales my friends have are about 1200 lbs each. Is the receiver strong enough to haul that around?????

^the regular "plate" that is class IV (or is it III....don't remember....?) has 500 lb tongue weight capacity. The bigger class IV (or is it V.....? again don't remember...) has 1,0000 lb tongue weight

I'd say if you have the 1,000 lb tongue weight bigger hitch you'd be ok.
