Recommended Trailer Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier for Carrying Snow Blower


Hi there I would like to know what is the difference between part #63153 and #63155. I would like to carry a snow blower on this for most of the winter which weighs 270lbs would these products withstand weight on it for a long period of time of loading and unloading? My truck has 2 inch hitch.

Both Pro Series cargo carriers can handle the 270 pound snow blower. The difference is that # 63153 is 24x60 inches rated for 500 pounds and meant for use in a 2 inch hitch receiver. The # 63155 is 20x47 inches rated for 300 pounds and is meant for use in a Class I or II hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The weight of the carrier and the snow blower can't exceed the tongue weight capacity of the hitch. This information will be printed on a sticker affixed to the hitch.

Since your vehicle has a 2 inch receiver hitch, I would recommend the Rage Power Sports Scooter Carrier, part # SC500. This carrier has a 500 pound capacity, a ramp, and can fold up flat against the rear of the vehicle when not in use.
