Video Transcript for MaxxTow Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - MT70197 Review

Today were taking a look at the MaxxTow adjustable tri-ball mount for 2-inch hitches, part number MT70197. This ball mount has a built-in set of hitch balls that allows you to hook your trailer up to your tow vehicle. The shank, as you can see here, would slide into a 2-inch trailer hitch receiver, and the ball provides a connection point for your trailer coupler. An adjustable height lets you tow trailers of different height with the same vehicle as you can see here, and Ill show you in just a moment how all of this is put together. It has a three different size hitch ball set that allows you to tow trailers with different coupler sizes. It has a 2 5/16 inch hitch ball, a 2 inch hitch ball, and a 1 7/8 inch hitch ball.

To switch the hitch ball, as you can see here, when it would be fit inside the receiver, you would just take this out and slide that back in so you could use whichever size ball that is necessary for the job at hand. Each of these items have a black powder coat finish to help resist corrosion. Theyre made of a durable steel construction and everything you see here is included including the pins and clips to put all of this together. Taking a look at some of the specs for this item, the 1 7/8 inch hitch ball has a gross towing weight capacity of 2,000 pounds, and a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. The 2 inch ball has a towing weight capacity of 5,000 pounds, and a tongue weight capacity of 500 pounds, and finally, the 2 5/16 inch ball has a gross towing weight of 10,000 pounds and a tongue weight capacity of 1,000 pounds.

Now were going to move this over just a little bit so we can bring out our 2 inch hitch receiver demonstrator. First, we would take the shank, and this can be used in either a rise or drop, right now we are going to use it in the drop position. You would match up the holes here, take one of your silver pins, slide that in there and then clip it off. Then you take this and you will find where on the shank you want to place that and well go ahead and put that right here, take your other gold pin, slide that through, and you will clip these off as well, and then finally you would take the tri-mount hitch ball set and slide that into the receiver. For purposes of the demonstration, we will use the 2 5/16 inch ball.

Youll take the remaining silver pin, slide that through, and then clip that off as well. Looking at some dimensions, we have it at the maximum drop which is measured from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform, and that is 5 inch. The maximize rise for this item is also 5 inch. Measuring from the center of the hitch pin to the center of the ball is 15 inch, and thats regardless of which ball youre using. All three have that same measurement from center to center, and finally the overall length of this item is 20 inches.

This item does also come with a 90-day warranty. That should do it for our MaxxTow adjustable tri-ball mount for 2-inch hitches, part number MT70197.

The product showed up at my home before I expected it and everything I ordered was correct and boxed very well so no damage could happen. As everything I have ordered over the years, ordering has tons of info, video for install and great products at the best prices. My 2017 Toyota Tacoma looks great with these products! 410491

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 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 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

As a business owner myself, I can't say enough about a well run business; etrailer is one of those. I found the product I was looking for, ordered it and got a very fast order confirmation. The next day I received a ship and track notice and a follow up if I had any questions. Package arrived as estimated and the product I ordered is great. Definitely a 5 Star Company and product!! 564984

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



- MT70197
by:

I really like the product but, when hooked to a trailer the ball sits too close to the lip on the receiver therefore the hitch is actually sitting on the lip of the receiver rather than the ball. Not good if you go through a dip.. They need to make the try ball part sit out about 3/4 of an inch to fix the problem 389822

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



- MT70197
by:

THE HITCH IS VERY HEAVY DUTY AND LOOKS GOOD AND VERY EASY TO SET UP. THE ONLY THING I SEE THAT COULD BE IMPROVED IS THERE IS A LOT OF CLEARANCE WHERE THE TRI-BALL MOUNT FITS INTO THE RECEIVER TUBE. I'M GOING TO FIND SOMETHING THIN TO GO AROUND THE BALL MOUNT TO TAKE THE PLAY OUT OF IT. 216986

As usual from etralier...Great price. Quick delivery. Perfect for the truck. 2015 GMC Sierra. 295127



- MT70197
by:

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

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



- MT70197
by:

Well, what can I say. The price is the best I could find when you add in shipping. The product arrived very fast. I looked it over and installed it. Used it today to pull my 7,000 GVW enclosed car hauler trailer. It worked great. I feel much more comfortable towing with a 10,000 rated ball mount than the 5,000 rated adjustable that I was using. The added bonus is that I can get rid of all of my other various drop and rise mounts with a variety of ball sizes. Simple is fantastic! 173506



- MT70197
by:

Lots of adjustment. The three ball sizes are nice. It will have some play in your receiver. This is normal. I'm not sure how easy the balls can be changed out if they become damaged or rusty. Keeping this locked to your receiver will require several locks, because of all the pins. 287758

Still working beautifully! Ive towed a 34 foot bumper pull camper cross country with it, and Ive towed a [rental] car carrier loaded up with vehicles a couple times. Never any issue. This thing is HEAVY DUTY. Well worth the money.

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

  • 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

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

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.

  • Does MaxxTow Make An Adjustable 2-Ball Mount With 2 Inch and 1-7/8 Inch Hitch Ball?

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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...
