Video Transcript for Husky Weight Distribution HT30859 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Shank for 2" Hitches. This weight distribution shank is for the Husky Center Line Trunnion Bar weight distribution systems. It is designed for a 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver. The unit's constructed of a very strong durable steel construction. Nice solid shank here on the back side. It's going to feature a powder-coated finish over it so it's going to do a great job at resisting rust and corrosion, lasting a long time, looking good for a long time.

You'll notice when it comes to the adjustment holes, it's going to be a 5-hole design. It does require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock to secure the weight distribution shank inside the 2" x 2" receiver. Those items are sold separately. If you're in need of one, you can find them here at etrailer.com. The pin holes right here will accept a standard 5/8" diameter pin. A few measurements that I just want to go over with you real quick.

Starting with the overall length from very back of the shank to the very front, it's going to measure 14" long. The shank length, basically measuring from the back of the shank to the back of the adjustment bar, that's going to give us a measurement of 12" long. You'll notice that it has a nice welded on, durable support right here. Really helps add to the overall durability, stability of the unit. A few other measurements to go over.

The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the adjustment holes, that's going to give us a measurement of 9 3/4". Now, if you're using this in the rise position, that would be in this position here, and if you have your head assembly at the highest setting, it's going to give you a maximum rise of around 11 3/4". If you're using this in the dropped position, if you have your head assembly at the lowest setting, it's going to give you a maximum drop of about 13 1/4". Again, it does have a 5-hole design for adjustability. The distance that we have between those holes, going center on center, those holes are going to be separated on center by 1 1/4", and 5" on center from this one to this one. That's going to do it for today's look at the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Shank for 2" x 2" trailer hitch receiver..

  • It sounds like you are interested in a shank for the Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 8,000 lbs GTW, 800 lbs TW, # HT32217. This weight distribution system comes with the shank that has a maximum rise of 6-1/2 inches and a maximum drop of 1-1/4 inches.

  • Replacement Head for Husky Center Line TS Weight Distribution System
  • Sorry to hear about the thieves, but the good news is you do not have to buy a brand new weight distribution system and can simply get the parts to replace the head unti. For your Husky Center Line TS # HT32218 with a max tongue weight of 1,200 lbs, you would need the Replacement Husky Centerline TS Series Weight Distribution Head # HT32328 as well as Replacement Hardware for Husky Center Line Weight Distribution Head Assembly # HT32340.

  • How to Determine Correct Rise or Drop for Weight Distribution System
  • There is an easy way for you to find out the shank you need with your Husky Centerline weight distribution system like # HT32217. First, make sure both your 2011 Ford F-250 and Forest River travel trailer are parked on level ground; you'll then want to measure from the ground to the top of the inside of your hitch receiver. Next, measure from the ground to the bottom of your trailer's coupler and find the difference between the two measurements. If the height of your hitch is greater,...

  • Hitch Extension For 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver To Use With Camper With 23 Inch Overhang
  • The Curt Hitch Extension and Reducer for 2-1/2" Trailer Hitches - 24" to 34" Long # C45048 is the best extension we carry for your need. However, it is limited to 6,000 lbs when extended 24 inches, so it will not work for your application. You will need to go with the Superhitch. If you let me know your model year, I can give you a recommendation.

  • Husky Weight Distributing Shank To Give At Least 2 Inch Drop
  • The best application to even out your trailer with your car is the, Husky Weight Distribution Shank - 10" Long - 4-1/2" Rise, 6-3/4" Drop # HT31518. This shank will give you the additional 2" drop you need (see measurements). The shank on the # HT32218 was only able to provide you with a 1-1/4" drop. You are correct about Husky Weight Distribution Shank for 2" Hitches - 9-3/4" Long - 5 Holes - 14K Item # HT30859, it is too long for the application that you need.

  • Edge to Edge Dimensions on Husky WD Shank # HT30859
  • I went out to our warehouse to take a couple measurements on the weight distribution shanks that you mentioned in your question. The Husky # HT30859 measures 14 inches long (edge to edge) on the shank portion that inserts into the hitch receiver and 14-1/2 inches long (edge to edge) on the adjustment hole side. The Equal-i-zer # EQ90-02-4400 measures 12 inches long on the hitch receiver shank and 14 inches along the adjustment holes. The Curt # C17123 measures 11 inches long...

  • Hitch Ball Height Adjustment for 4 Inch Drop When Using Weight Distribution System
  • The Husky Center Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - Trunnion - 6,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW # HT32215 will not have the drop you need to work with your trailer. Weight distribution systems determine drop in the same way as ball mounts, so you will need a longer weight distribution system shank. I recommend the Husky Weight Distribution Shank for 2" Hitches - 9-3/4" Long - 5 Holes - 14K # HT30859. If you need the 2-5/16 inch hitch ball versus the 2 inch diameter hitch ball, then...

  • Dimensions for Husky Weight Distribution Shank # HT30859
  • I went out to our warehouse to take a look at the Husky Weight Distribution Shank # HT30859 referenced in your question. I measured an overall length on the adjustment hole portion of the shank of right at 14-1/2 inches. At 2-1/2 inches up from the shank I measured a length of 2 inches on the welded angle and then 6-1/2 inches from the angle to the center of the hitch pin hole. I have attached an image to assist.

  • Height Distance from Center of Hitch Pin Hole to Center of Top Adjustment Hole on Shank HT30859
  • I assume you mean the vertical distance. On shank # HT30859 from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the top adjustment hole vertically it measures 7-1/4 inches. To the center of the bottom hole is 12-1/4 inches. The horizontal distance is 9-3/4 inches. I have included a picture showing these measurements for you.

  • How To Determine The Correct Rise/Drop For A Weight Distribution Shank
  • Choosing the proper shank is a very important task. The shank will correspond to the height of both the vehicle and trailer. In order to choose the proper shank, you will need to do a bit of measuring. To select the correct rise/drop, you will first measure from the ground up until you reach the top of your vehicle's trailer hitch opening. You will then need to measure from the ground up until you reach the bottom of your trailer's coupler. The difference between the two will provided...

If you need a bit more rise or drop you can also use the Husky # HT30859, which will provide up to a 13-1/4 inch rise or an 8-3/4 inch drop with a round bar setup.

  • Husky Weight Distribution Shank Recommendation that Can Do 6 inches of Drop
  • For a shank to use with a Husky Weight distribution system that is capable of up to 6 inches of drop you'd want the Husky shank part # HT30859 as the part # HT31518 is only capable of 1-3/4 inches of drop.

  • Will I Need a Longer Weight Distribution Shank if I Switch to a Lifted Truck?
  • If you only have the shank that came with your Blue Ox SwayPro system, then you will almost definitely need a longer shank to tow with a lifted F-350. The good news is the brand isn't all that important because most shanks are interchangeable between brands and we can help you figure out what size shank you will actually need. I attached a help article to this page that talks about how to find the correct rise or drop for a ball mount. Basically, you will just want to get your truck...

  • How to Determine Fit of the Husky Weight Distribution Shank Part # HT30859
  • The weight distribution shanks we offer like the Husky Weight Distribution Shank part # HT30859 all use a pretty standard hole size and spacing so more than likely it will work with the weight distribution system you have now. However, in order to be certain you will need to measure the distance between the vertical adjustment holes on center in addition to the actual size of the hole. This shank has holes spaced 1-1/4" apart on center top to bottom and the holes are 3/4" diameter. There...
