Video Transcript for MaxxTow Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the MaxxTow adjustable tri-ball mount, part number MT70197. This ball mount is perfect if you have multiple trailers to tow. It's going to allow you to tow trailers with coupler size 1-7/8", 2-5/16", and 2". The balls are adjustable simply by removing the pin and clip here, change it to the correct coupler size, reinsert it, and you've got it. With the 2" ball it offers a 6,000 pound gross trailer weight and a 600 pound tongue weight. For the 2-5/16" ball it offers a 10,000 pound gross trailer weight and a 1,000 pound tongue weight. Finally, for the 1-7/8", it offers a 2,000 pound gross trailer weight and a 200 pound tongue weight.

It offers eight points of adjustability, four in the drop, and four in the rise, with a maximum rise of 5-3/4" and a maximum drop of 5-3/4". It's made out of a solid steel construction with a black powder coat finish so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. The shank itself is solid rather than hollow for added durability. The chrome-plated balls are permanently attached. The hitch pin and clip to get it installed into your receiver tube is included. If you'd like to pick up a hitch lock for added security, you can pick one up with part number 40107. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed.

First thing you'll want to do is be sure you're starting with a level trailer. Then we can install our shank in either the rise or drop position depending the height we need. We'll just feed it in and then line up our pinholes. We'll take our included pin and clip, slide that through, and then put the clip in place. Then we can grab our receiver mount.

We want to be sure that our locking bolt is on top. Then we can select the appropriate height for our trailer. We'll take our included pins, slide those through, and then put on the clips. Then we can just tighten down our locking bolt to reduce rattle and play. Lastly, we'll select our ball size. For our trailer here it's just going to be a 2".

We'll line up our pinholes here. Then we'll take our pin, put that through, and then our clip. Then we can just hook up like normal. Now we can put on our safety chains and then we're ready to tow. That's going to complete our look at the MaxxTow adjustable tri-ball mount, part number MT70197.

Not much to say everything worked and fit together fine, it's heavy duty and easy to adjust. 88631

I purchased this receiver hitch a year ago and have been very satisfied with it from day one. I use it on my 23 foot cuddy cabin boat, a double axle toy hauler trailer down to an eight foot utility trailer. With a simple rotation of the balls in the receiver we are good to go. I would by this product again but due to the quality and workmanship I know the need will not arise. 443167

Excellent product. Shipped free and fast. Had it the next day. Product description was right on in the ad. Will definitely by from them again 450196

I put this hitch on a lowered Dually to level out the trailer. I Have been using to tow cars and other heavy items on a 20ft trailer. No issues/signs of problems. Would recommend to anyone needing adjustable options. 499577

I don't tow much and when I do it is usually various trailers, so this unit is heavy duty enough to suit all my needs. Thought about going Aluminum, but since I do NOT leave it mounted, I decided to save some money. I like the unit, heavy and well made (in China, didn't know that until I got it) 78842

I just received the trailer hitch late yesterday and have only opened the box and inspected the hitch. I was impressed with the quality of the hitch. The black paint coating is excellent. The three hitch balls are shiny chrome, not black as shown in the online picture. Very nice! I was impressed with its weight. This product is beefy and should do the job nicely for my purposes. I also purchased an anti-rattle trailer hitch receiver lock to go with the hitch. It looks good. I'm looking forward to their use. 202136

This thing is solid, literally. Unlike other manufacturers, the extension and the drop are both solid steel, not square tube. It weighs a ton but the welds are clean and it's well made. For the money it's a great deal, especially when you consider some brand names are twice the price. We have two trucks that we use to tow light trailers (-5000lbs), these ball mounts are working out nicely. 282081

This was a birthday gift and I'm extremely pleased, it was ordered for me and delivered within 3 days. This hitch is solid and well built, everything fits together with precision. I know your think it's just a hitch, well it you tow as many different trailers as I do, you would get it. Well built, easy adjustment height and ball size. I'm extremely pleased, thanks for a good product and good service. 233860

Changed to a lifted truck and needed a 6" drop to get the trailers level. This hitch was the best deal I could find with the same tow ratings as the straight tri-ball hitch I had been using.

I use the hitch for towing my trailer to haul my tractor around and I also tow a utility trailer. It makes it very handy to be able to switch the balls back-and-forth. The balls are rusting already. I’m disappointed about that. I wish there was more adjustment to go lower because my trailer is tilted just a little too high when hooked up. 639879

I have three different trailers I pull behind my F150 - a livestock trailer and two haulers, a 12' and a 16'. This adjustable hitch has made leveling them much easier, not to mention the advantage of the adjustable ball sizes. Definitely money well spent. 625405

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Ball Mounts

Do you have a question about this Ball Mount?


  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2006 Honda CR-V to Tow Motorcycle Trailer
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75690 referenced in your question is a great choice and is the hitch I recommend for your 2006 Honda CR-V. This is confirmed to fit your vehicle and will provide a 2 inch receiver opening with a 3,500 pound towing capacity. I do also recommend verifying the vehicle's towing capacity as listed in the owner's manual, as this will likely be the limiting factor. Based on the 19-21 inch hitch height of the trailer, you may simply need to...

  • Availability of Extra-Long Adjustable Ball Mounts for 2-Inch Hitches
  • The Draw-Tite Adjustable Ball Mount with Sway-Control Tab # 7390 measures 11-3/4-inches from its hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. I confirmed with my contact there that there is no longer version offered. MaxxTow Adjustable-Height Ball Mount # MT70068 does not offer the sway control tab but it does offer greater length, measuring 13-inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. Their Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount # MT70197 includes 3 hitch balls...

  • Differences Between the MaxxTow and Curt Adjustable Tri-Ball Mounts
  • Actually there is a much bigger difference that you should consider, and that is the capacity differences between the ball mounts based on the ball size used. For the Curt Ball Mount part # D900 the capacities are: 1-7/8" Ball - 6,000 lbs 2" Ball - 7,500 lbs 2-5/16" Ball - 10,000 lbs For the MaxxTow Ball Mount part # MT70197 the capacities are: 1-7/8" Ball 2,000 lbs 2 inch" Ball 5,000 lbs 2-5/16" Ball 10,000 lbs

  • Can Different Hitch Pins Be Used on MaxxTow # MT70197 Adjustable Ball Mount
  • According to my MaxxTow representative, the hitch pins used to secure the ball mount into the receiver on the vehicle and the ball assembly onto the shank can be replaced with a different 5/8 inch diameter hitch pin. However, the two gold colored zinc plated pins that allow you to adjust the elevation of the ball assembly on the shank should not be replaced with different pins. Doing so would lead to an unknown weight capacity.
    view full answer...

  • Can Locking Hitch Pins Be Utilized Within Any Hitch Pin Holes with the Ball Mount Part # MT70197
  • Yes, the locking silver hitch pin and clip included in the MaxxTow tri-ball mount # MT70197 will fit all the hitch pin holes. But the silver pin and clip has only been tested for the receiver opening hitch pin hole not the ones on the shank. The shank will use the included gold hitch pins. I included a couple pictures to the right for you as well.

  • Adjustable 3-Ball Trailer Hitch Ball Mount
  • So are you looking for everything except for the shank in MaxxTow adjustable ball mount # MT70197? If you want just a tri-ball part we have # C45800. The receiver part it fits into is # C45802. The combined cost of those parts though is about the same as the MaxxTow complete assembly. I have also included a link to all of the tri-ball options we have. The most cost effective is # MT70270 but it is not adjustable.
    view full answer...

  • Recommendations for an Adjustable Ball Mount with 3 Balls
  • We have several 3-ball ball mounts. Curt # D900 is a popular option. MaxxTow makes a similar model, # MT70197. It is most likely one of these two you are thinking of. But I also included a link to all of the 3-ball mounts that we carry and links to some video reviews.
    view full answer...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount with 1-7/8 Inch and 2 Inch Balls
  • We do have a similar item that has all 3 common ball sizes; 1-7/8, 2, and 2-5/16. Take a look at the Curt adjustable tri-ball ball mount, # D900. I have included a link to a video review for you. MaxxTow has a similar product, # MT70197. I have linked a video for it as well. Either of these are going to be the closest in design and price as # MT70380 you mentioned.

  • Ball Mount Needed with Longer Shank for Use with a Ford E-350
  • I do have a solution for you but the MaxxTow # MT70197 (and all of our other long shank ball mounts) is shorter than the Curt # C45900 that you currently have. You could use a Gen-Y shank like part # 325-GH-303 for a 5" rise/drop or part # 325-GH-304 for a 7-1/2" rise/drop along with the Gen-Y Tri-Ball Mount # 325-GH-034 which comes with 1-7/8", 2", and 2-5/16" hitch balls and has a 12" long shank. Another option is to use a fixed ball mount with a long shank like the Hidden Hitch...

  • Recommended Towing Setup for 2005 Ford F-350 Transporting a Truck Camper and 30ft Boat Trailer
  • You might not need a hitch extender or weight distribution. It is possible that a long ball mount will have the length needed to provide clearance for towing the trailer. Ball mount # 40331 measures 9-1/4 inches from the center of the pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It is rated for 16,000 pounds gross trailer weight and it has a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop. Another ball mount to consider is the MaxxTow # MT70197. This ball mount will provide you 13 inches from center of hitch...

  • Availability of Adjustable Ball Mount Rated for 10K
  • The adjustable ball mount part you referenced offers a 6-inch rise or drop and has a black powder coat finish. Although we do not carry this brand we do offer similar adjustable ball mounts like the 3-ball MaxxTow # MT70197 that provides the same rise and drop as the Trimax you referenced. If you wanted a polished billet aluminum ball mount with a built-in tongue weight scale you might like the Weigh Safe # WS8-2. This includes a 2-5/16-inch ball rated for 10K and a 2-inch rated for...

  • Can the Maxxtow Multi Ball Mount MT70197 Give up to 4 Inches of Rise
  • I can't recommend you insert the # D210 into the shank of the # MT70197 to give you additional rise. If you flip the shank of the # MT70197 upside down you can get up to 5-3/4 inches of rise so this wouldn't be necessary.

  • Does MaxxTow Make An Adjustable 2-Ball Mount With 2 Inch and 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball?
  • MaxxTow only makes their Adjustable 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 6-1/4" Drop, 7-7/8" Rise - 12K, # MT70380, with the 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch ball sizes. They do however have a three ball hitch, the MaxxTow Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 5-3/4" Drop/Rise - Solid Shank, # MT70197. If you are looking for a similar design with the 2 ball hitch with the 1-7/8 inch ball and 2 inch ball, I recommend the EZ Adjustable Ball Mount with Combo Ball - 8" Drop or Rise - 8,000 lbs, # AM3297.

  • Will an Adjustable Ball Mount Work with a Ram 1500 with a Four-Inch Lift Kit?
  • For a Ram 1500, the MaxxTow Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount, # MT70197, will give you nearly six inches of drop and may work for your vehicle, but you are going to need to measure to make sure. To figure out which rise or drop you will need, first park your Ram and trailer on level ground. From there, measure from the ground to the top of the trailer hitch receiver on the Ram. Then measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler on the trailer. You will need a ball mount with drop if...

  • Replacement Ball Mount for MaxxTow Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount # MT70197
  • According to my contact at MaxxTow their Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount # MT70197 does not have a replacement 3-ball mount available as a separate part. We do offer a replacement part for a similar Curt multi-ball hitch, their # D900, and the replacement part is # C45800. Please note that since this item is from another company and has not been tested with the MaxxTow ball mount its weight capacities will differ from the original part. I cannot give you absolute assurance that these will...

  • Recommended Adjustable Ball Mount with 1-7/8 Inch Ball for 2018 Chevy Colorado
  • For your 2018 Chevy Colorado, I recommend the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 2" Hitch - 5" Drop, 5-1/2" Rise # BWTS10038B. This ball mount comes with 2 hitch balls one of which is the 1-7/8 inch ball you need. It is adjustable in 1 inch increments so you can make sure your trailer rides level. This hitch also has a really nice stow-away feature for a clean look when not in use. I've attached a video to assist. I also recommend you use a hitch lock like # e98880 to deter theft and...

  • Ball Mount with a 4 Inch Rise for a 2017 Kia Sportage
  • Based on the installation video we did for Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 76074 on a 2017 Kia Sportage, see link, the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver opening is 13 inches. This means to get 17 inches you would need a ball mount with 4 inches of rise. But it also depends on how you are measuring. On the trailer use its jack to make the trailer level. Then measure from the ground to the bottom of the coupler. It is measured this way because the ball fits up inside the coupler...

  • How to Determine Correct Hitch Ball Size for a Fulton Coupler
  • The Fulton Fas-Lok Coupler # F222000301 does have the same 22 200 SAE Class 2 numbers that you referenced but that has to do with the testing as opposed to the hitch ball size. If you check out the picture that I attached you can see that the handle itself has 2" Ball engrave on it. Your coupler should have this on the handle or on top of the coupler part that sits directly on top of the hitch ball. If you still can't find it then you should be able to go to your local home improvement...

  • Are Drawbars of Curt and MaxxTow Tri-Ball Adjustable Ball Mounts Interchangeable
  • From the center of the hitch pin hole the MaxxTow # MT70197 measures 1-13/16 inches deep and 2-1/8 inches to the outside lip. For the Curt # D900 it's 2-1/16 inches deep and 2 inches to the lip. I actually pulled the ball drawbars from both and tested them on each other's ball mounts and they both fit.

  • How to Select Ball Mount to Allow Hitched Trailer to Remain Level
  • For a towing vehicle like your 2006 Toyota Sequoia you want to select the ball mount that allows your hitched trailer to remain level. A level trailer will tow better than one that is too low or too high at the coupler. I linked an article that explains how to measure to figure out the right ball mount, but another way to go is to use a kit with multiple parts, such as # 989900 or an adjustable ball mount like # MT70380 or # MT70197.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount with 1-7/8 and 2 Inch Balls
  • We do have some adjustable ball mounts that feature a 1-7/8 inch and 2 inch ball. We have EZ Hitch # AM3295. For more rise or drop we have # AM3297. We also have some with 3 balls (1-7/8, 2, and 2-5/16 inch) including # D900 and # MT70197. I have included some links to videos for you.

  • Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for 3 inch Hitch that Has Two Balls
  • For an adjustable ball mount with 2 hitch balls that fits a 3 inch trailer hitch like what you have you'd want the B&W Tow & Stow part # BWTS30040B which comes with a 2 inch and 2-5/16 inch hitch ball and a 21k capacity when used with the larger ball size.

  • Hitch Receiver Lock for MaxxTow Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount
  • No, you would not be able to use 4 receiver locks in place of the pins of the MaxxTow Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount # MT70197; the gold hitch pins that hold the mount to the the shank is required in order to maintain the proper weight capacity. If you wanted to lock the ball mount to your hitch you can do so with Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock # e98880.

  • Base Plates for 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • No, a ball mount will not work as a way to flat tow your 2016 Chevy Silverado, you will need to add base plates to your truck. The Blue Ox # BX1731 base plates are a fit for a '16 Silverado and works with Blue Ox Aladdin, Alpha, Avail, and Aventa tow bars.

  • Replacement Weight Distribution System Shank with 6 Inches of Drop
  • It sounds like you need a shank with at least 6 inches of drop to go with your weight distribution system. The Curt # C17124 will give you up to 9-1/2 inches if you system uses round spring bars or 7-1/2 inches if the bars are trunion bars. Either will be plenty for what you're looking for. The MaxxTow # MT70197 is an adjustable ball mount that will not work with a weight distribution system.

  • Tri-Ball Adjustable Ball Mount for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with 20 Inch Wheels
  • Since you are towing multiple trailers with different heights then going with an adjustable mount is the way to go. Its also good to have because you never know what you might be towing in the future. We have a few different tri-ball adjustable ball mounts that you could use. Curt ball mount # D900 that you referenced is one of them. MaxxTow makes a similar ball mount, # MT70197. Both of these mounts have up to a 5-3/4 inch rise and drop. Both are rated for up to 10,000 pounds gross...

  • Ball Mount to Tow Trailer With Clevis Hitch
  • We do have some options for you to tow a trailer with a clevis mount but the MaxxTow Adjustable Tri-Ball Mount # MT70197 that you referenced doesn't have provisions for that. Instead you can either use the Convert-A-Ball # CAB-6W which comes with 3 different hitch ball sizes plus the clevis or the Curt # C45008 which has 2 hitch balls and the clevis but you need a shank like part # C17100 to mount it to for adjustability. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.
