My shank's too heavy. I'd fall over on my side!

Not only does my dealer sell them... They use them! On several ocassions I have seen them moving hitches inside the shop/store using this tool.

I lifted their demo out of curiosity and found it very well balanced and definetly made moving the Equalizer around much easier.

I don't need one anymore as the MH does not need a WDH, but I certainly see the benefits.

That's actually a really good idea in a commercial shop setting like that. Less chance someone lifts wrong and hurts their back, less employee down time, less worker's comp claims, better productivity all around. WELL worth the price of admission.

If it ain't scratched it's not used
