Video Transcript for Andersen Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - AM3460 Review

Today we'll be review part number Am3460. This is the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount, from Anderson. The adjustable aluminum alloy ball mount is designed to fit a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. Before we really get started, I just want to show you how to go ahead and assemble everything. This right here is your ball platform. What you'll do is you'll place your ball into the platform and then you can move it until you get your pin holes to line up with one another. Then you'll take this pin here, you're going to slide it in until you get it to line up.

That pin is going to sit down all the way in there, so you'll know when that's seated correctly when it's pushed all the way in and flush with that other surface. Now with the ball installed in the platform, you're going to install this on the adjustable shank. We're going to be setting it at it's lowest setting today. Once we have it set we can just take our pin and clip, place it through and then secure it on the other side. So now all that would be left to do is go out and actually install this onto the hitch of our vehicle and make our connection, then we'd be ready to go. This ball mount will adjust in increments of one inch. It will adjust up to a three and a half inch drop or a four and a half inch rise.

Again one inch in between those measurement. The adaptability of this mount is going to allow towing of various trailers by still using the same ball mount. Here at the rear you're going to have two different hitch pin hole locations that just allows for further adjustment. It's going to come with two chrome plated steel hitch ball. The two sided platforms going to feature a 2 inch hitch ball and a 2 5/16 hitch ball. The hitch ball secures to the ball housing with that internal pin that I showed you earlier, that is included.

That just going to allow for easier interchangeability. You can also add additional ball mount sizes. You don't have to use the ones that it comes with, you can purchase another set separately that can replace the originals. When you insert this into your hitch, you will need to secure it with a hitch pin and clip or a hitch pin and lock. Those are going to be sold separately. If you don't already have one you can refer to our website.

It's just going to use a standard 5/8 inch pin and again, you'll need to use a clip or a lock on each side to secure it. A great option would be part number Pc3, that's just going to be your standard 5/8 inch pin and it's going to come with a clip. This is designed to fit two inch by two inch trailer hitch receivers. It's also going to be compatible with 2.5 inch by 2.5 inch receivers when using the 2.5 inch to 2 inch adapter sleeve. That's going to be sold separately with apart number 58102. Again, you're going to have a 2 inch ball and a 2 5/16 inch ball. When using the 2 inch ball you're going to have a gross towing weight of 8000 pounds. When using the 2 5/16 inch ball, you're going to have a gross towing weight of 10,000 pounds and 1500 pounds when it comes to towing weight. The maximum rise that this units going to provide is going to be 4.5 inches. That would be installed in this position. At it's highest setting, measuring from the ball platform to the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch. If we we're to keep it installed in the drop position, do that same measurement, it's going to provide that maximum drop of 3.5 inches. If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole, I'm going to measure from the pin hole that's closest to the back of the upright bar, that's going to give us a measurement of 8 1/4 inch. The distance to the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole using that back pin hole location, that's going to give us a measurement of 9 5/8 of an inch. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright portion, again measuring from the shortest one first, that's going to give us a measurement of 2 3/4 of an inch. Then the further one, that's going to give us a measurement of about 3/8 of an inch. That measurement is important to keep in mind because you wan tot make sure you have enough clearance between the outer most point of your vehicle and the rear of the upright portion of the ball mount. If we take a measurement of the overall length, measuring from edge to edge, it's going to give us a measurement of about 13.5 inches. Again, this portion here, slides into the receiver tube of your hitch. It's got the nice slanted design, so it's going to slide in and out really easily. That's going to do it for our review of part number Am3460. This is the Rapid Hitch Adjustable Aluminum Ball Mount. .

I purchased this to replace a Fastway Flash E Series Ball mount that I purchased and returned from another online seller that did not provide enough clearance from my rear bumper in the rise position. My vehicle really needed the extra 5/8ths of an inch of length on the shank of the Rapid Hitch. Clearance was not a problem in the drop position; but with a receiver that's 18-inches off the ground, I need to use the rise position more frequently than many. The other thing I noticed is that this ball mount is feels more substantial than the one from Fastway. In use, I prefer this to the Andersen EZ hitch I had been borrowing. It looks really cool. It has 5 adjustment positions rather than four and bit more adjustability in either direction. Plus, it still fits in easily in the storage area underneath the floor of my SUV. And did I say it looks really cool. I hated to put grease on the ball before I went to hook up the trailer. Also, I plan to get the lock set. It's looks great on my SUV and seems likely to disappear overnight and look great on someone else's vehicle. 453600


Comments
Ive used this ball mount a lot over the last year both in the 2-inch and 2 and 5/16-inch configuration and it has held up very well. There is a small grove in the shaft from my hitch receiver but, otherwise, it still looks almost new. I did ultimately purchase the lock set for those occasions where I would be disconnecting the trailer, I was towing overnight but didnt want to remove the ball mount only to have to put it back on in the morning.

Haven't pulled anything with it yet, but overall it appears to be a quality product. There is over .0500 play in the hitch when mounted in the receiver. That will probably make a lot of noise. The adjustment part of the hitch seems pretty good. 619943

I've been using my rapid hitch for almost a year now, and I have to say that I can't find anything really wrong with it. It has virtually eliminated the need to carry multiple mounts around. The adjustability has provided the perfect options for height for everything from utility trailers, boats of all sizes, car trailers and large enclosed snowmobile trailers. An added benefit is that it looks pretty good too. 275629

The hitch is high quality and it's also made in the USA, which is important to me. I am excited to tow my 6000 Lb. boat with the new hitch, I think it will do quit well. I will have to buy a pair of locks for the hitch, so it doesn't disappear from the back of my truck. I really appreciate the free shipping, too. 247271

Was able to use the hitch for the first time this weekend. It was used to tow a BobCat mini excavator, almost 8,000 lbs. Worked like a charm. Was able to adjust it to level both trailers that I used to deliver and return the excavator. 137686

This is a great product, so light and easy to use. Wish I had known about the pre-coated ball version, as i would have purchased that version, just cleaner than having grease on everything. Still this is by far so much easier than the old metal style receivers!! 137636

Rugged construction, very adjustable, and easy to adjust. Excellent!!. The lawn trailer needs 3inch drop and the camper needs 3inch rise - this hitch does it all and switching over takes only seconds. Only had for a week so towed just a couple times and only a few miles but perfect so far. 88311
