Replaced an older hitch and works exactly as it should. No problems. Thanks. 610759

- HT31516

Product is exactly what we needed. It saved us a good amount of money by having this part as other places said we needed to buy the whole package again when all we needed was this part. It wouldn't be my first choice if we were to do it over again but being able was find parts for the existing setup was huge. It probably doesn't go here but the personal at etrailer was amazingly helpful and knowledgeable. It would be 5 stars if etrailer would post a picture of the item so we could be sure it matched up to the rest of the system. 495379

  • Replacement Head for Husky Round Bar Weight Distribution System
    The Curt weight distribution head # C17107 is not a confirmed fit for a Husky weight distribution system. We do have a couple of replacement heads for Husky systems depending on the age of your existing system. It sounds like you have the Husky round bar system. For a replacement head for that we have # HT31516 which I can almost guarantee is the right one for you. I have included a picture of what the Husky round bar system looks like.

  • Does the Husky Weight Distribution Head Part # HT31516 Come with Hitch and Sway Control Balls
    The Replacement Head for Husky Weight Distribution Systems part # HT31516 does not come with a hitch ball or sway control ball but you can add them using part # HT39386 for hitch ball and part # C40093 for the sway control ball. We also have replacement spring bars available as part # HT31521. The sway control ball is made by Curt but it will still work with your Husky system. Please let me know if you need any other parts or have any further questions.

  • Are There Grease Zerk Fittings in the Husky Towing Replacement Head for Round Bar Systems
    My contact at Husky confirmed that there are not grease zerk fittings on the # HT31516 Husky weight distribution head. Between the two system you referenced, I recommend the Curt Weight Distribution System # C17057. The grease zerk fittings will easily allow for lubrication of the round bars to maintain the system. This weight distribution system will require a hitch ball with a 1-1/4 inch shank, like # 40038. What you've heard about using a heavier-duty system is partially true....

  • Should Weight Distribution Head Be Replaced If Bent
    It is rare that we hear of a weight distribution head being bent as you described. It possibly could have been caused by the head not being tightened if the angle was changed. The photos you said you sent did not make it to us but if the head shows any signs of damage, like being bent as you said, I recommend replacing any of the damaged parts as soon as possible. Using a system that has any parts that have been damaged will present an unsafe situation and should be avoided. Let...

  • Availability of Spring Bars for Husky Weight Distribution System
    The part numbers you mentioned don't match anything we offer but we may have what you are looking for. We carry a few different Husky weight distribution system spring bars. I attached a page that has all of the ones we carry. If you have a Center Line system that is rated for 600-800 lbs you would want the # HT32330. Or if rated 800 to 1,200 lbs part # HT32329. If you have a round bar setup you would want part # HT31521 for 800-1,200 lbs or # HT31522 for 1,000 to 1,400.

  • Replacement Head for Husky Weight Distribution System
    While some components of a weight distribution system can typically be interchangeable between manufacturers, such as the adjustable shank, replacing the system's head with one of a different brand is not recommended. This is because the head is tested along with its spring bars, and changing out these parts can affect the system's overall rating and performance. Because of this, I do not recommend using the Replacement Pro Series Weight Distribution Head # PS58442 on your Husky system,...

  • Weight Distribution System Compatibility Between Different Manufacturers
    The Husky Replacement Head for Husky Weight Distribution Systems - Round Bar # HT31516 will bolt onto the Reese Weight Dist Shank - 14" Long - 2-1/4" Drop to 7" Rise - 1,400 lbs TW # RP3214 or the Equal-i-zer Weight Dist Shank - 18" Long - 7" Rise, 3" Drop - 600 to 1,400 lbs TW # EQ90-02-4500. Each shank has the weight rating to work appropriately and has the same incremental adjustment of 1-1/4 inches to work properly. The shank is really the only interchangable part on a weight distribution...

  • Weight Capacity of Husky # TH31516 Weight Distribution Head
    The 6000 lb capacity figure applies when the weight distribution head is used as a ball mount only without the spring bars attached. The 6000 lb capacity would apply to the entire weight of the trailer, including its' contents. If you're wanting to tow a 10K trailer without weight distribution, you can simply use a normal ball mount that's properly rated for the weight of the trailer plus its contents. I've linked you to our selection of ball mounts that are rated up to 12K. You'll...

  • Replacement Parts for Husky Round Bar Weight Distribution Systems
    I checked this spring bar # HT31521 in our warehouse and found that it is stamped "801-1200" which indicates the tongue weight rating of the set of two bars in the complete system. The tip to tip length of this bar is 32-3/8-inches. This Husky weight distribution replacement round bar part # HT31521 works with their weight distribution systems 31423 and 31428. These complete systems are no longer offered but we do offer the replacement head assembly # HT31516 that fit these two system...

  • Can a Husky Weight Distribution Head be Bent because it was Overloaded
    The GAWR is the gross axle weight rating so you have two 3,500 pound axles which adds up to 7,000 pounds meaning the remaining weight of the trailer is carried by the tow vehicle. Trailer tongue weight is usually 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. If the trailer was loaded to the full 7,480 pounds that would be 748 to 1,122 pounds tongue weight. But you also have to factor in the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. So if you had 100 pounds of...

  • Replacement Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Stolen Husky WD Components
    Sorry to hear about your weight distribution system getting stolen. Due to the price of the individual parts you need (head, ball and shank) it is most likely going to be a better option to replace the entire system. We only have the one replacement Husky head # HT31516 and when you combine it's price with a new shank like # RP3215 you are at the price of some systems. Actually a Pro Series Round Bar system like part # PS49583 would cost almost as much as just one of the above mentioned...

  • Drop Shank that Will Fit Husky Weight Distribution System
    Yes, the Pro Series weight distribution shank part # RP63971 is compatible with Husky weight distribution system heads as most companies make the heads to the industry standard dimensions. Or for one that can do even more drop you would want the part # C17123.

  • Replacement Head Assembly for Husky Round Bar Weight Distribution Hitch Head 37116
    I checked the Husky Towing website for the head assembly part 37116 and this is indeed a correct part for their round bar weight distribution systems. This particular part was discontinued in 2009. Our Replacement Head for Husky Round Bar Weight Distribution Systems, part # HT31516 that you referenced, is the only replacement head offered by Husky and my contact there confirmed it will work for you.

  • Spring Bar Compatibility with Husky Weight Distribution Hitch Head
    No. The weight distribution system bars are manufacturer and weight rating specific to work with the hitch head so the EZ Lift bars are not compatible. Your Husky system 31421 is rated for 600 lbs and we unfortunately do not carry the 600 lb replacement bars, however that hitch head of that unit # HT31516 is also compatible with larger bars # HT31521 rated for total tongue weights between 801 and 1200 lbs if that is appropriate for your trailer. This total tongue weight is the loaded...

  • Replacement Head for Husky Round Bar Weight Distribution System
    Based on the picture you attached I believe you have a Husky Round Bar Weight Distribution System, for which the correct replacement head is part # HT31516. Typically the only component of a weight distribution system that's interchangeable between different manufacturers is the adjustable shank. This means the Curt Head # C17107 that you referenced will not work on your existing Husky system.
