Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Ball Mounts 40330 Review

Today we are reviewing part number 40330 from Draw Tite. This is a forged one piece ball mount with a one inch rise or a two inch drop. The towing capacity is 16,000 pounds and the towing rate capacity is up to 2,400 pounds. As you can see it has a drop of two inches from the top of the shank to the ball mount platform and it has a rise of one inch from the top of the shank to the ball mount platform. It measures from the center of the hitch pin-hole which is here to the center of the ball hole-which is here and that is eight and one half inches. The ball mount platform itself is one inch tall.

It has a double powder coat finish so it should resist corosion and rust very nicely. That's it for part number 40330 from Draw Tite-the forged ball mount with a one inch rise or a two inch drop rated at 16,000 pounds.

I was at a farm meeting and university rep. was pointing out the dangers in hauling trailers without proper hitch assemblies.The local hardware chains do not have products made for heavy farm trailers.You guys do have all the equipment anyone needs for this type of hauling.Was happy to correct my light setup before something bad happened.Ignorance is not bliss. 63696

I had a great experience ordering from you. Your organization kept me completely up to date with the order & shipping process and delivered the exact products I ordered. Attached is a photo of the 16,000 lbs capacity hitch and 30,000 lbs 2 5/16 ball you sold me in use. The boat and trailer total about 12,000 pounds. Thanks again. 39173

I needed a 2 inch drop for my tandem axle trailer to ride correctly but I could not find a ball mount locally to fit my application. An etrailer customer service team member pulled this item from their warehouse, took a couple measurements over the phone to assure me of a correct fit, and shipped it that afternoon. I pulled the trailer last weekend and this solid ball mount from Draw-Tite did the trick. If you have a question, just call 'em. Thanks etrailer! 232442

This thing is solid. Have not towed with it yet but since its rated at 16k lbs and my truck is only rated to 7k lbs its more than enough but I never like to run the limits on anything. There area lot more stresses that get put on these things when you have to panic brake for example. Only gave it 4 stars cause it is made in china. I really want American made but that's hard to find. 231169

Just received your Forged Ball Mount " rise, 16000 lb for pulling my Case 580-E backhoe. It is exactly what I was looking for and is a quality mount that will give me peace of mind when pulling any load. Your service was excellent and shipping was a day early. I shopped the web to see if I could get a better price, but you beat them all, plus you knew your product. Thanks John F. 55122

Hitch looks good. One issue that I think may be something to think about. The hitch that I ordered is rated @ 16,000. There is no where on the hitch that the weight is stamped. This could be problematic when I get inspected by the DOT and have to try and convenience them that the hitch is rated for the 14,000 # trailer that it is connected to. 10329

I've made about 5 purchases from etrailer over the past couple of years , and their prices have been excellent . No company which I have ever dealt with , matches their fast service. Etrailer puts most companies to shame , when it comes to speedy , friendly service. If they have what I want , they'll always have my business. 221199

I had no idea a regular old slide receiver ball mount wouldn't work for for my trailer. It turns out that my old reese ball mount from Wal-Mart was underrated and thus cracked within 2" of the ball. Thanks etrailer for making hitch grade easy to understand and potentially saving me and my family's life. 292874

by:


Sold. Black. 16K. 1" rise 2" drop. Not sure what else to put, if you need something this heavy duty, then it works. If you only need a 6K hitch, it'll work for that too. 16K bumper pull is insane. My total truck and trailer is 13800, so better to have excess capacity than be near or over. 213900

Good product only thing I would change is top and bottom surface area where ball goes should be machined parallel to make a good surface to keep ball tight I machined mine before installing it. Im sure that it would have worked with out doing this but might of worked lose over time. 441912

This hitch is heavy duty and the finish on it is very thick and durable. The load ratings on this hitch are great as well as the price so there is no reason for someone to overload and take a chance on other "light" hitches. 118408

This ball mount is not your typical square stock, it is a solid piece of steel and heavy! I am using it with a class 4 Curt hitch. It fits well into receiver and ball mount nicely without excessive play. 474890

Bought one of the same ball mounts for another vehicle. Didn't see a reason to change what was working. The only change I made was flipping it over and using it as a 1" rise instead of a 2" drop mount. 528065

I use this when pulling heavy fertilizer spreaders behind my truck. It is not unusual to have 8000lbs on a spreader. My Coop manager says it it sht heaviest hitch he has ever seen around here. 452308

This hitch mount is a beast! It's a little heavy but its solid metal and feels indestructible! I'm very happy with it and the peace of mind that it will not fail is great. Highly recommend it. 302104

  • Ball Mount Recommendation Rated for 14,000 Pounds Gross Trailer Weight on a Ford F-450
  • To determine the receiver size you have, I have included a link to an FAQ that will help. The Reese 2-1/2 inch Titan ball mounts like # RP45323 or the one found in # EBMK25318, tend not to fit the factory 2-1/2 inch receivers on Ford Super Duty trucks. You will need to use one of the Convert-A-Ball ball mounts. We have # AMSCV-6 with a 6 inch drop or 4-3/4 inch rise. We also have # AMSCV-4 with a 4 inch drop or 2-3/4 inch rise. And then we have # AMSCV-2 with a 2 inch drop or 3/4...

  • On B&W trailer hitch # BWHDRH25122 the mounting brackets are oriented the same for all applications. The tabs point in but attach to the bottoms of the frame rails. The customer submitting photo appears to have some other component installed. The upper brackets in that picture are not part of the hitch assembly. They appear to be bumper brackets.

  • Recommended Class V Hitch for 2006 GMC Sierra for Towing 10,800 lb Boat
  • I'd recommend upgrading that hitch, ASAP. If the hitch fails while you're towing, causing an accident, your insurance company would be well within their rights to deny you coverage which would leave you wide open to all kinds of legal liability. Not a pretty situation. Usually, Class V hitches do indeed have a 2-1/2 inch receiver tube.

  • 50 mm Hitch Ball Recommendation for a 2 inch Trailer Hitch
  • The only 50 mm hitch ball we offer is the part # 63912 with a 3/4 inch diameter shank that would only fit 1-1/4 inch ball mounts, but a 2 inch hitch ball translates to 50.8 mm. Which is very close. Since you have a 2 inch hitch your best option would be a 2 inch hitch ball like the part # A-90 and a ball mount like the # 40330 for if you need a 1 inch rise or 2 inch drop. If you need a different rise/drop you would want to check out the help article I attached on how to pick out the...

The next size up would be a 1 inch rise, like the Draw-Tite Ball Mount, part # 40330. I am including links to product pages that will list the ball mounts with a 3/4 inch rise and with a 1 inch rise.

I would recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch for the 2002 Ford Van, item # 75703. This hitch is economically priced and can tow up to 6,000 pounds or 10,000 pounds with a proper weight distribution system, if your van has sufficient towing capacity.

  • Is a Ball Mount Spacer Available for a Hitch Ball with a 1 Inch Diameter Shank
  • To use the Curt 2 Inch Trailer Ball, # 40038, with the Draw-Tite Forged Ball Mount, # 40330, you will want to use the Reese Hitch Ball Bushing, # 58184. This will not reduce the towing or tongue weight capacity of the hitch ball or the ball mount, but you will be limited to the 12,000 lb towing capacity of the hitch ball since it is the lowest rated component.

  • Square Corner Ball Mounts Will Not Fit in Factory Trailer Hitch to 1993 Ford F-250 Diesel
  • What you are describing is a common problem with some factory hitches. You are correct, you do not want to grind away any of the metal of a ball mount to get it to fit. Removing some of the powder coat is acceptable provided you do not also remove any metal. What I recommend is looking for a ball mount with the more rounded corners. A ball mount like # BM20 has more rounded corners but it is rated for 10,000 pounds whereas the mount you referenced is rated for 16K. Cushioned ball...

  • Ball Mount For Factory Class IV Hitch Has Play on 2011 Dodge Ram Big Horn
  • With a Class IV Hitch, you should have a 2 x 2 receiver. You should be using a ball mount designed for 2 inch receivers like the Draw-Tite Ball Mount, part # 40331 or # 40330. The ball mount will have some play when mounted to the hitch because of the difference in tolerances between the shank of the ball mount and the receiver opening. Both may be within specs but up to a certain tolerance, one may be within the tolerance but on the high side, and the other in spec on the low side. Yes,...
