I can believe 208 pounds. I use mine with a 6' Super Gill double roller, around 8-900 lbs. I'd guess. Also, have put 3 pt. forks on and lifted roll hay bales, a little better than 1200 lbs. The Case pin connectors are 3/4" plate so I don't think you can bend them. The FFC has a slide bar for easier hookup, and I think its the better of the two. One thing I'd like to get is some kind of quick hitch system but not in the budget right now.
