Video Transcript for Andersen Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - AM3509 Review

Today, we'll be reviewing part number AM3509. This is the Rapid Hitch Alumistinger Ball Mount with a eight inch drop or seven inch rise. It's rated at 8,000 pounds. It's made from aluminum alloy, solid bar construction, so there's no cuts or welds. It's very sleek and highly unique in its design and it's also extremely lightweight. The design goes into making it completely rust-proof or corrosion resistant. It is designed to fit two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver, so you can see that it has the angled side here on the back.

That allows it to easily slide in and out of the receiver tube of your hitch. With it in this position, if we take a measurement from the ball platform to the inside top edge of the receiver tube, you're going to see that it's going to give us our drop of eight inches. This can be used in the rise position as well. We do that and take that measurement. It's going to give us a measurement of about seven inches. One of the important measurements to keep in mind is when using this in the rise position you want to make sure you have enough clearance between the upright bar and the back of your vehicle.

We can simply take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the beginning of the curve and then that way you can apply it to your application to see if you're going to have enough room for this to fit. That measurement is going to be three and three quarters of an inch. This does have a capacity of 8,000 pounds of gross trailer weight and 800 pounds of maximum ton weight. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole up here to the ball hole is going to give us a measurement of 11 inches and when choosing the hitch ball you want to make sure that the shank of the hitch ball does not exceed the ball hole diameter. That's going to give us a measurement of one inch. The width of the platform at its widest point is going to measure two and one quarter of an inch and the depth or the thickness of the platform is going to measure an inch and a quarter. If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank up at the top, it's going to measure right at two inches.

The way this works is this portion here slides into the receiver tube of your hitch, slide it in until your pin holes align up, then you'll need to secure it using the hitch pin and clip or hitch pin lock. These are sold separately. You can refer to our website and type in part number PC3 and it will refer you to this five eighths inch pin that comes with a clip or you can look on this products page and look underneath the related items on the right-hand side of the screen to see some other options. That's going to do it for today's review of part number AM3509. This is the Rapid Hitch Alumistinger Ball Mount rated at 8,000 pounds. .

This product is well worth the extra cost. It’s light weight and looks so much better than rusty black steel! Highly recommend 658611

This is a work of art. Looks great, very smooth and light weight. The 8" drop allows me to tow my trailer at the correct save level. 107365

As far as the ease of purchase and fast, free shipping are concerned, this order scores five stars. However, the hitch that was sent to me had some pretty obvious scrapes on one side, and if I were choosing from stocked items in a brick and mortar store, I would have passed on it. It is fully functional though, and it's not going to stay pretty forever hanging off the back of a motorhome for thousands of miles, so I won't be bothering to return it. Great packaging, etrailer. I ordered three items, and all three were securely wrapped in paper and in one compact box. As for the free shipping option, I placed this order on Sunday afternoon, and it was delivered Wednesday morning. This is my second purchase from this site, and it surely won't be my last. 551813

This ball mount is super well made. Light and strong fits perfectly. I was wanting something rust proof with higher tongue and towing capacity. I didn't want something that would be just good enough I wanted something better. The towing capacity is 8000lbs,,,gives me piece of mind. etrailer got this to me super quick ! 607711

Ask the Experts about this Andersen Ball Mounts

  • Stopping Slop And Jerking When Towing With Extended Ball Mount
    In order to get a sung fit on the Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3509, is to use the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 with this product. This unit is designed to stop movement between the receiver tube of your hitch and the accessory that's installed inside the hitch. It's great for eliminating rattle and wobble. It installs quickly and easily. In regards to the size of ball mount, it may be better to select a product with less drop. Because once the weight of the trailer is on the hitch,...

  • Will the Curt Hitch Ball # 40038 Work with the Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3509
    As long as I understood you correctly I believe the Hitch Ball # 40038 that you referenced will work correctly with the Alumistinger Ball Mount # AM3509. It sounds like the shank of the ball is sticking out a little bit beyond the nut when fully tightened. That is actually ideal since the nut has enough threads to thread onto yet the shank is not so long that it hurts ground clearance.

  • Hitch Ball Compatible With Alumistinger Ball Mount
    There is a hitch ball that is compatible with the Alumistinger Ball Mount with 8" Drop or 7" Rise # AM3509 but the Brophy 2" Hitch Ball # CB28Z is not because it has a 1-1/4" diameter shank, and the Alumistinger requires a hitch ball that has a 1" diameter shank. The hitch ball I recommend instead is the Curt # C40033; like the Brophy this is a 2" hitch ball with a 6,000 lb capacity and 1" rise.

  • Is the Finish on the Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball # 63853 Shiny or Dull
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Tow Ready Trailer Hitch Ball, # 63853, to check the finish on it. It is a polished stainless steel so it is shiny. I have added a picture I took of the ball so you can see. It is shiny enough to where if you look closely, you can see the reflection of the camera. For the Alumistinger, we have several different ones to choose from: # AM3505 # AM3503 # AM3511 # AM3509 # AM3507

  • 2 Inch Ball for Alumistinger Ball Mount with 1-1/4 Inch Thick Ball Platform
    You are correct about ball mount # AM3509. The ball platform is indeed 1-1/4 inches thick. The 2 inch ball 63852 does not have a long enough shank to be used with this ball mount. You will need a 2 inch ball with a long shank such as # 63849. It isn't stainless steel like the other ball and there isn't a stainless steel option with a long enough shank that would work.

  • Distance From Hitch Pin Hole To End Of Shank On Ball Mount For 2-Inch Hitch On 2004 Lexus LX 470
    I went to our warehouse and took a measurement of a couple ball mounts for you. The Curt Ball Mount, part # C45100 has a 6-1/4 inch rise or 7-1/2 inch drop and the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the shank that inserts in your trailer hitch receiver is 2-1/2 inches. Another ball mount we offer is part # AM3509. This ball mount has an 8-inch drop or a 7-inch rise and the distance form the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the shank is 2 inches....

  • Aluminum Ball Mount with 8 Inch Drop to Position a Trailer Inside a Garage
    Whether or not the lower ball would make contact with the ground depends on how high up the tow vehicle is. If you were to measure from the ground to the top of the receiver tube on the vehicle when on level ground, then subtract 8 inches, that will give you an idea of where the bottom of the TOP ball will be. That alone should tell you if the lower ball would be too low. You do not want to cut the ball because it will void the warranty and also make the ball mount unsafe to use. There...
