Video Transcript for Review of the Fastway Flash Solid Aluminum Ball Mount

Speaker 1: Today we'll be taking a look at Fastway's line of flash solid aluminum ball mounts. These either come with a 1 inch diameter ball mount shank and various drop and rise configurations or with a 1 1/4 inch ball mount shank and various drop and rise configurations. And just for reference, the one we'll be showing off today is part number DTBM4200.As you can see here, this is what it's going to look like installed on our vehicle. That nice shiny finish really stands out and looks great with our truck in comparison to some other painted steel options. And depending on the height of your vehicle and your trailer, you may need either a drop or rise position. We've currently got it installed in our drop position.

And if your set up required a rise, you can also install it in this position to ensure that your trailer's level inaudible 00:00:52.From the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball mount is going to measure about 8 1/4 inches. The key to successful towing is knowing the tongue weight and gross trailer weight of your trailer. Each ball mount is going to have a specific rating for its tongue weight and the amount of its gross towing capacity. You want to make sure that you match your trailer with your ball mount. When in doubt, always make sure that you go with a heavier duty ball mount so that way you don't have to worry about your trailer becoming disconnected from your ball mount.That should latch onto your trailer.

Just lock it down and you're ready to hit the road.Here we have our aluminum ball mount from Fastway. Now if you compare this with a steel one, you'll instantly notice there's some major differences. First off, appearance. This one's got a polished finish which gives it a real sleek, attractive look. Another on the appearance is that this is a machine surface.

So everything's going to be nice, sleek, and consistent whereas this one is welded together. So you're going to have these ugly welds covered up with paint.And then beyond that, you'll notice here at the end our steel is hollow on the inside and our aluminum is completely solid. Even though this one is completely solid, it still weighs less than this one here. So it's easier to handle. Unless you notice that this is bare aluminum while this one's painted because aluminum is resistant to rust.

So you don't have to worry about rust especially if you're going to be in a salty area or if you take your boat to the dock often.Now before you install any ball mounts in your truck, you want to check out your trailer in your truck to make sure you're getting the appropriate one with the drop or rise to feed it. So we'll start here by measuring and we've got about 20 inches on our truck to the top inside edge of our receiving tube. And after we've leveled out our trailer, it's measuring about 18.5 inches. So we're going to need about a two inch drop. This one here is a two inch drop and uses a one inch shank ball. It does not come with a ball, so you have to get your own ball separately. You can pick one up here at etrailer.com. And you need to make sure you torque it properly. If you don't have the appropriate equipment to torque your ball, you can go to any local trailer distributor and they can likely torque it for you.We're now ready to slide it into our hitch. This is a two inch by two inch shank on our ball mount, so it'll match up to our two inch by two inch hitch. The hole here is for a 5/8 inch hitch pin. It does not come with one, but you can pick one up here at etrailer.com, part number PC3. If you'd like to go with a locking option, Fastway has one available with part number DT30005.And it's as simple as that. We're read to hook up our trailer. And that completes our look at Fastway's line of flash solid aluminum ball mounts.

Love it. Light weight yet 2000lb tounge weight. Just mounted a new ball, perfect fit in 1" hole. Bought the new ball bearing locking pin sprayed a little silicone inside lock before locking my new hitch to truck. All very nice. Will likely buy another to mount a larger ball so i don't have to swap balls. Was concerned the locking pin would be too short but there is 1/4" extra length, just fine. 285888

The product is very well built and comes highly polished. I expected, as advertised, that there would be the two spring loaded ball bearings on the male end to reduce the rattling but they were not there. Consequently, the fit on the 2012 F-150 receiver is very sloppy and rattles excessively. I tightened the fit by wedging composite shims in the gaps to remove the slop. Don't know how long they will stay in. I would imagine the manufacturer makes it a little undersized to fit more recievers. Well built product/Poor fit. 147859

After about 1.5 - 2 years of of daily use this Ball mount failed big time. I was driving about 35 mph and the ball mount broke at the ball opening. My trailer detached and was dragging behind my truck. ball mount is fine if you don't use it a lot I guess. I will not buy again. 241714

After a year, I want to buy another. I have a 2-5/16? ball on this one, and to haul some smaller items, I need a 2: ball. Am going to buy another so I can just swap out tongues.

Received the aluminum trailer hitch from e-trailer and it is definitely a work of art. It is highly polished and will look great once I attach the stainless steel ball to it. This hitch has a 1,000 lb. tongue and 14,000 lb. towing capacity. etrailer has been great to deal with and my order was shipped and received quickly! 602838

Ordered the Receiver Hitch, Ball and HitchLock and got free shipping. Order was confirmed immediately by email and shipped the very next day with the UPS tracking number. Order arrived one day early to my surprise. The Hitch appears to be well made and looks sharp, the Ball and Hitch Pin the same. Looking forward to getting the boat out of storage and hauling it with these new products. Great prices, fast and free shipping on quality products. 361284

I have a new pickup. I wanted to get something that wouldn't rust so badly. I ordered this DTBM4600. When I opened the box I was amazed at the quality of this reciever. It is so beautiful I don't want to bring it outside. It is solid aluminium. It is perfect looking and you can tell it will hold up to any task. I can't say enough about how happy I am that I found this product. Get it it's well worth it. 526557

Aluminum Ball Mount This is an excellent ball mount. It is light weight, super strong, (14,000 lbs GTW rating), fairly inexpensive considering it's performance, and not to mention, it's super shiny and looks great on my new truck. It has handled my boss's landscaping trailer (7,000 lbs loaded) and his dump trailer (up to 12,500 lbs) without a single issue. One more thing with this being aluminum, I don't have to worry so much about it rusting in the winter time with the salt on the roads. Also the service from etrailer was A+. It was shipped out the same day I ordered it and arrived quickly. Thanks a lot guys for the great products and customer service. 3452

Review from a similar Fastway Flash in Ball Mounts


Very nice looking drop hitch, light weight and nicely machined and polished. The only thing I would improve is that the ball bearings for the anti-rattle feature do not extend far enough to work in my receiver (a Curt XD) but that is just my own personal truck. 86517


Comments

After owning this hitch for about a year I still love it. I put a quick change ball on it and it stays on my truck year round. If you care about the anti-rattle you might want to pass, the ball bearings came out within 6 months of use.

High tow rating and lighter than steel! 347176


Comments

Its good. Rattles a little. Miss the anti rattle bead. Wish they made an 8 as my 6 is just a bit to high. Makes putting the trailer on and off kinda difficult sometimes. Id by an 8 if they made it right now. All in all for the price its a great, light high rated ball mount.

Review from a similar Fastway Flash in Ball Mounts


This ball mount is top quality, aircraft grade, billet aluminum… and far nicer in appearance than I would've expected. It is obviously CNC machined, and highly polished afterwards. This ball mount is also surprisingly light in weight, considering it is milled from a solid piece of aluminum bar stock. Another positive point to this type of construction method is that there are no welds to fail. This tough mount will no doubt outlast my truck, and can handle 4300 lbs. more tow capacity than my vehicle's gross towing capacity! It will be a real shame the first time I overshoot my trailer and gar this beautiful ball mount, but it is bound to happen. The "anti-rattle" ball-type tensioners are a nice touch, which quiet down the hitch while trailering, or on rough roads. I highly recommend spending a little more than you would for a painted steel ball mount, and purchasing this solid aluminum beauty instead. It will look nicer for much longer, won't corrode, and conducts electricity, (for those of you whose trailer plugs aren't wired with a ground, and rely the ball to coupler contact to complete the ground between your tow vehicle and trailer, you won’t have to file off any paint to get a good ground contact). Bottom line: this is a great product; etrailer.com has friendly and knowledgeable customer care staff, who offer fast, first-class service and shipping. I will definitely do business with etrailer.com again. Thanks so much! Joseph in Ojai CA. 117094


Comments

Just a quick note, grounding through the ball and mount is not a great idea, especially with aluminum. Aluminum is not a great electrical conductor to begin with, but in applications where weight is a concern it is used. Back in the 60s, they tried using aluminum wiring after in residential construction, but quickly went back to copper when prices came back down. Furthermore, these ball mounts are highly polished, but left in the white. Aluminum will not rust or corrode, but the surface will oxidize. Over time you will notice it is not as shiny as when new. That haze is surface oxidation that will further inhibit electrical conduction. And of course, as the ball mount moves in the hitch, ground connection can become erratic. A good copper wire ground is always best way to ground a trailer.

Review from a similar Fastway Flash in Ball Mounts


I have had this on my truck for over a year now with no issues. Works great and the spring loaded ball bearings keep the ballmount from rattling around in the hitch. I have towed an equipment trailer with a 7,500 lb tractor on it on several occasions with no issues. The only signs of corrosion are around the receiver opening where rust from the hitch has stained the aluminum. This could be eliminated if the ball mount was stored somewhere other than in the hitch. 109234

This ball mount not only looks good, but it functions very well. I have had no problems with it whatsoever. I use a stainless ball which I purchased from etrailer and it too works very well. I switch this ball mount and ball between my F-150 and a Jeep Rubicon and it works perfectly for both pulling two very different kinds of trailers. I do not keep it on either vehicle very long after use as it tends to attract attention and I don't want someone trying to steal it or other items from the vehicle. 567055

  • Rust Proof Ball Mount and Hitch Ball Setup Recommendation
  • First thing you will need to do is determine how much rise/drop you would need from a ball mount to tow your trailer level.

  • What Trailer Hitch Balls are Recommend for the Solid Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTBM4200
  • A ball with a medium shank, 2-1/8 inches or longer, will work fine with the Solid Aluminum Ball Mount, # DTBM4200. You will just need to make sure that there are at least 2 threads past the nut when it is properly tightened to the ball mount. Here are some of the balls we recommend: For a 1-7/8 inch diameter, # 63851 For a 2 inch diameter, # SC23-C For a 2-5/16 inch diameter, # 63853

  • Is Rise Or Drop On Ball Mount Measurement Accurate
  • The rise or drop for a ball mount is measured from the top of the hitch opening to the base where the ball mounts on the drawbar. We have a few aluminum ball mounts that have a 1-inch rise like part # EA20, part # DTBM4200. These are made with tight tolerances so you can trust they are accurate. The hitch ball hole for both of these ball mounts is 1-inch diameter.
