This. Like him, I have never used a mallet or the pry bar.

I have the Huskey, and I wouldnt say its noisey. I agree with previous post that you have to grease it. Not a lot of grease, maybe just a pump or two. If you havent greased at all I would maybe clean it before adding grease.

Just a few drops of oil is recommended on the bars what contact the hitch head.

Your hitch has Zerk fittings for a reason.

Google it. It's for greasing the hitch head. Your current hitch has one on each side.

The owners manual of the Reese Pro series makes no mention of zerk fittings at all.

X2, I have never used the pry bar. I just keep raising the tongue until the bars are loose, same for putting them on.

My back is not the best anymore. For me, I move the wdh in pieces. The bars are the easiest part to deal with. The Hitch head, is fairly heavy, but the worst part is the awkwardness of carrying it from the storage spot, to the receiver. Been thinking about making a little dolly to put it on, to make rolling it over to the TV, a piece of cake.
