Video Transcript for Review of Bulldog Adjustable Trailer Coupler - Coupler with Bracket - BDA2563C0317

Today we are going to take a look at the Bulldog cast head coupler for a 2 5/16 diameter ball with the adjustable three position channel and this has a 14,000 pound weight capacity.Now this heavy duty coupler is ideal for utility, livestock, cargo, and construction trailers. It does use this wedge style latch, which is secure and very easy to use, has a release down here that will release it and then you just lift the latch all the way up to open it.I happened to pull here's a 2 5/16 diameter hitch ball, and you can see that the coupler will go right over the ball and then you release it, and then the little latch at the bottom will hold it into place. Now there is a hole in the latch here that you could actually put a coupler lock through there for extra security if you prefer, and then to release it just pull up again to release the handle, lift up on the latch, and it will remove it right from the coupler just like that.Now the channel bracket, right here, this can be bolted to or welded to the trailer. You can see it is a three different position channel bracket. It does give you a four inch adjustable height when you put the coupler here. Now, the coupler will mount to this adjustable channel bracket and this is the mounting hardware that is included that will attach the coupler to the channel.So again, if we just line the holes up, find the correct hole, slide it all the way through, just like that, and then slide the other bolt all the way through.

Then, take your nuts with the lock nuts on them and just go ahead and install those. Of course, you will tighten those all the way and that will put it at the position you need and again you can move it to whatever position you like.Now the specs on this again, it is designed to fit a 2 5/16 diameter ball. The coupler length, which is going to be . We're going to measure from the back of the coupler to the very front of the coupler. You're going to be looking at about 9 1/4".

The coupler width is going to be right at edge to edge about 2 7/8". Now the bracket itself, height on just the bracket is going to be right at 7 3/4" and the overall width on the bracket is right at 3 5/8" and of course the inside measurement width is 3".Now the distance between the center of the mounting holes, in other words from one hole to the other, center to center is going to be 2" and again the weight capacity on this is going to be 14,000 pounds. That should do it for the review on the Bulldog cast head coupler for a 2 5/16 diameter ball with the adjustable 3 position channel and a 14,000 pound weight capacity.

Holding up great. Only down side is every time I use it, it means more hard work is in the near future...wish it was on a recreational trailer, not a work trailer.

Review from a similar Wedge Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


I had to wait a bit for this one, but I wanted this TYPE of coupler so I can lock it with a master lock. This is HEAVY DUTY, really made well and to last more years than I have left on this earth! Easy for me (elder female) to use/easy to latch, unhook. Gives me a great feeling to KNOW this is latched solidly and WON'T jump off the ball...I am so happy with this coupler, and the wait was well worth it!! Photos show the new Bulldog coupler and the replaced white one on the ground.

Review from a similar Wedge Latch Coupler in Adjustable Trailer Coupler


This is a substantial ball hitch. I haven't installed it yet since I intend to paint it. The gray paint on it seems to be only a primer and it isn't adhering well to the metal. So I wire-wheeled the paint off. That was a quick job--the gray came off easily. Some lacquer thinner will clean the metal and then the metal primer will adhere well. Then I'll paint it to match the CornPro trailer. This hitch can be locked with a regular lock, or so it appears. I haven't tried it yet to be sure. The ball socket is simply the rough casting, like all the rest of the hitch, so I hope it won't roughen up the ball. Grade 5 bolts with nylon insert nuts were included. The trailer had grade 8 bolts. So I will keep an eye on the wear. I would rather replace worn bolts every few years than have grade 8 bolts wear the softer bolt holes. On a 6,000 GTW trailer, I don't think grade 5 bolts will be sheared off.


Comments
After a years use, the ball hitch is fulfilling my needs very well. My concerns proved to be unfounded. A lock with extended shackle works fine. No wear shows on the hitch or the ball. I always feel confident that the hitch will stay secure.My method of painting worked well.

Ask the Experts about this Bulldog Adjustable Trailer Coupler

  • How to Mount an Adjustable Trailer Coupler
    Adjustable trailer couplers are not going to mount to your truck; they will attach to the frame of your trailer. Some of the adjustable couplers, such as the Bulldog Cast Head # BDA2563C0317 come with the mounting hardware to weld onto the frame of your trailer. Others, such as the Demco # DM15791-81, come with the channel bracket # DM66134 and mounting hardware # DM6166 separately. I've added a link to our page with each of our 2-5/16" adjustable trailer couplers for you to take a look at.

  • Looking for Replacement Channel Mount Coupler
    It looks like you're needing a cast coupler that mounts to a channel that's welded to the trailer, is that correct? If you're needing the coupler with a 2-5/16 inch ball, the Bulldog # BDA2563C0317 should work well for you. If you're needing a coupler lock, I'd recommend # e98886. The coupler does include the channel mount.

  • Is Small Amount of Play Between Coupler and Channel Mount Acceplable
    A little bit of play between the coupler and the channel is normal. As long as the bolts are properly torqued, the play won't damage or harm anything. I've confirmed this with my Bulldog representative.
