Video Transcript for Review of Andersen Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - AM3461

Today we're taking a look at the rapid hitch adjustable aluminum ball mount from Anderson. Now this adjustable aluminum alloy ball mount, it fits inside of a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver and it allows you to hook up to the coupler on your trailer. We have a two and five 16th inch ball and a two inch ball. We have adjustability for your drop and rise. It's aluminum construction so it's very strong, it's durable, it's lightweight, it looks great and it will not rust or experience corrosion. Now the ball mount is able to slide up and down the adjustable portion in increments of one inch up to a four inch drop and a four inch rise.

Pin and clips included.This system right here is recommended for vehicles with 20 inches or less from the ground to the top of the receiver tube opening of the hitch when the vehicle is level. That's going to include many light duty trucks and SUVs. It allows towing of various trailers with the same ball mount so you can switch between trailers that have different coupler sizes, two and five 16th and two inch. Also you have height adjustment so you can make the vehicle as level as possible with the coupler height on the trailer, which is always the safest way to tow.Here on the back of the shank we have two hitch pin holes, so that's going to allow for further adjustment. You can choose whatever one works best for your application.

Probably the most noticeable feature of this unit is the caps right here on the actual hitch ball. We have two greaseless Illuma ball hitch balls that are included. The two sided platform, so two inch and two and five 16th inch diameter balls. They secure easily to the ball housing, which is this area right here with an internal pin and that also allows for easy interchangeability. If you want to drop till one and seven eighth inch ball, you can get that in, place it on this platform.Now the greaseless nylon caps allow for easy rotation between the ball and the coupler when towing.

That prevents the coupler from getting stuck during turns. It makes towing a lot smoother. It also prevents greasy messes and does not require lubricants. Now if for any reason the nylon cap gets damaged, they're replaceable if needed, and there's replacements are available at etrailer.com.Product is made in the USA. Real quick, I'm just going to go over how to make your adjustments, but you'll want to do is pull this clip right here and then take the pin, pull that out as well.

That's going to allow you to adjust this up and down that shank. To switch between the different balls, you take the platform off, flip it and then reinstall it.Now this can be used in the drop or rise position, either one works. Again, four inch drop, four inch rise. Adjustable in one inch increments. If you ever need to remove the hitch balls from the platform, it's a one piece design, just runs through there. All you've got to do is remove the center pin. That holds everything in place.When it comes to making adjustments, super quick and easy with this system.Now a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock is sold separately and available at etrailer.com. It's not included, so you will need that to secure this inside the receiver tube of your hitch. Also, there is a lock set so if you want to lock that platform to the shank you can do that as well and that would replace this pin and clip with a pin and lock.Again, it fits a two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver. It is compatible with two and a half inch hitches when using a adapter sleeve, so two and a half to two inch adapter sleeve sold separately available at etrailer.com. Towing capacity with a two inch ball, this one right here, up to 8,000 pounds and up to 10,000 pounds with the two and five 16th inch ball and then the entire unit has a tongue weight capacity of up to 1500 pounds.We took a measurement from the center of this pin hole to the center of the hitch balls, and that distance is about eight and one quarter inches. From the center of this pinhole to the center of the hitch balls is about nine and three quarter inches. That's gonna do it for today's look at the rapid hitch adjustable aluminum ball mount from Anderson.

Great Co. to deal with, pricing, shipping, condition all as stated. We will be using on a new work trailer and am tired of the steel variety rusting and not looking good, we will see in the long term if we are satisfied. 431474

hitch looks nice, adjustments are quick, seems quite loose and noisy without the trailer on it but I'm sure it will be alright when hooked up. definitely get the locking pins. 487183

This is a must have for full-time trailer hauling. No ball grease needed. Easy to adjust for a level trailer, smooth towing. I increased my trailer tires to light duty truck tires (a little taller tire), for heaver loads & ease of mind to haul at 75 mph speed. This hitch allow me to fine tune the trailer ball height for best setup on my heavy duty Toyota Tundra truck. 426553

The hitch has held up really well and continues to function as expected. The aluminum has oxidized which is unfortunate but nearly impossible to prevent on a part such as this. 739151

Just installed, haven’t towed with it yet, quality after examination is spot on. The hitch lock set by Anderson towing products is very well machined. Lori B. At etrailer answered all my questions, was polite and professional. This is my first order from them but won’t be my last. 719473

Review from a similar Andersen Rapid Hitch in Ball Mounts


Picked up an aluminum burr in my finger when unpacking the unit. There are some unfinished type of circles that are quite sharp and need to be filed smooth. Other than that, the unit looks great and I'm anxious to put it to use. 242407


Comments
The hitch pin did not push through when I flipped the ball mount over into the receiver. I contacted the manufacturer twice and after two more replacements, the ball mount worked as advertised. The hitched looked great during the summer, but the winter road salt and sand took its toll, But at least its not all rusted and overall Im satisfied with the product.

Needed an adjustable hitch for my TaB trailer. This will be perfect. Great-looking piece of equipment. Easy to find on website, great prices, fast, fast shipping! Awesome! 162376


Comments
Ive been stopped more than once in a parking lot by someone asking about my hitch & dual lock set-up. I refer them to your site! The hitch works great and the fact that it can be raised/ped is the main reason for the purchase. The dual locks with a single key is handy! A good pair of chocks is needed in every garage for the home mechanic and for camping with a trailer. They smell terrible for a while, just dont store in your car/trailer camper. Money well spent. Your site is my first stop for my trailer needs! thanks!

Review from a similar Andersen Rapid Hitch in Ball Mounts


Hello The hitch works great as viewed in the enclosed pictures. If inverted it hits the bumper, of my Dodge 2500. The section that goes into the receiver is about 1/2" too short and hits the bumper. I have not tried it on my other vehicle to see if this is a problem. Kind Regards Leon D 145385


Comments
Leon, I have the same problem and am looking for a resolution. Ive called Andersen my CA sales rep and left a message.Id even be interested in paying for a custom shank length to be built for me needs. Well see, fingers crossed.

Johnny thanks for the feedback. In case you did not know we do also offer some ball mounts in extended lengths (long and extra long) for this exact reason. For a long ball mount that has the same rise and drop as this Rapid Hitch ball mount, check out the Diversi-Tech # DTSTBM7025
Solid-Tow Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w Chrome Balls - 2-1/2" Hitch - 10" Drop, 11" Rise
$262.24
. For this ball mount the distance from the center of the hitch pinhole to the back of the upright bar is 4-1/4 inches, vs. the Rapid Hitch # AM3413 is 3 inches.
