Video Transcript for Review of Draw-Tite Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - 40700

Today we're going to take a look at the Draw-Tite Ball Mount for three inch hitches. Has a four-inch drop, or if you turn it over has a two inch rise, and a 21,000 pound weight capacity. Now, this is a sturdy steel ball mount, fits into a three inch square receiver tube opening. It can handle 21,000 pounds towing capacity. The ball mount is going to let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion slides into the vehicle's hitch receiver and the ball platform right here provides the mounting point for your hitch ball.

Now, the hitch ball is not included with this, we do sell that separately on our website. You do want to make sure when you buy a ball mount to fit this, that the shanks diameter of the ball Mount is one and a quarter inches. That's the diameter of this ball hole right here.Now both the drop and the rise positions are available to ensure level towing. The drop, which would be this position, it's going to be four inches, and that's always measured from the top of the shank to the top of the ball platform. So if we put our ruler on it, there's your four inch drop.

If you flip it over for the rise, this will give you a two inch rise. And the same way, it's from the top of the shank top of the ball platform. So if we put a ruler on that, you can see right at two inch rise. This is a sturdy steel construction. You can see it has a nice black powder coat finish on it, it gives you a superior rust protection.Now to secure this into your hitch it does require a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock.

Both of those we do sell separately on our website. Pin hole diameter is five-eighths of an inch. Again, the application is for three inch by three inch trailer hitch receivers. Gross towing weight capacity 21,000 pounds, tongue weight capacity 2,100 pounds.A couple of measurements I want going to give you, the length, and we're going to measure the length from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. So if we go center of the ball hole to the center of the hitch pin holes, right at 10 and a half inches.

And then a measurement from the center of this hitch pin hole to the very back of the shank, it's going to be right at five inches.But that should do it for the review on the Draw-Tite ball mount for three inches with the four inch drop and the two inch rise.

This receiver hitch had the specs I wanted and fir the receiver perfect




by:

No more sloppy fit with a 2" spacer in this F350 3" receiver. This 3" hitch is tough.
Best price - local or internet and good shipping.




by:

Carol,I am sure the product I received will be perfect just like your service. I did send you pictures of how I received the damaged carton. Thank you for making it fight within a few days. I will have to say that you folks are perfect in making customers satisfied even though we encountered a problem which had nothing to do with your company but a poor handler you sent it through.
Once again, thank you. Jack K Sunahara

This thing is a beast. When I picked the box up it was in it felt almost as if they sent the hitch that bolts to the truck. It’s cast iron not mild steel.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Very nice, good quality ball mount. Will work great to tow my car trailer.


Comments
The hitch ball mount has done an excellent job. I bought a new Chevrolet Colorado last. Came with the tow package but I needed a ball mount for the receiver. I found one with the exact amount of on your website. Once I got everything set up, I towed a car trailer with a car in it from California to South Park with no problems whatsoever. High quality products at a reasonable price.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


My truck is quite the workhorse! Occasionally, I need to pull a flatbed trailer for a parade or a cargo trailer for trips. Before this product, I just had a ball hitch through the back bumper. It did the job, but finally wore out. Plus, it was quite a steep angle for the trailer to lock onto to. At the recommendation of another etrailer client, he found this item for my truck, I bought it, and we installed it together. I really like how the trailer links down lower now, the mount is strong and durable, good quality, and ball accessories can be interchanged pretty easily. The video on the website was very helpful with the installation.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Working in the sand and grass of my driveway my wife and I installed our new etrailer receiver hitch. Great fit and finish! Went right on as described in the online guide. Hitch required a spacer washer on top back bolt attachment point. Taped it on so it would not move while lifting in place and it stayed right there! Used a car jack to raise up and hold the hitch into the underside of the trunk tighten the bolts and reattached the tail pipe done.
Now we can pull our Sunfish Sailboat any where the car will go.

Works great.

Excellent because it's the exact right height for my Tahoe's high hitch to get my utility trailer to ride level. Build quality was great, and delivery fast.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I was hoping the ball and hitch would already be assembled and torqued down. Why isn't the ball boxed or wrapped up inside the larger receiver box to avoid it bouncing around during transit? That would avoid it impacting other exposed contents in the big box.

Review from a similar Draw-Tite Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Works well but I didn't see an option for a 1 7/8" ball - which is what my trailer coupler is sized for. So I ended up with a brand new 2" ball with this delivery and had to buy another 1 7/8" ball. But it fit and worked well.

Great products and service. I was able to order everything I needed to add a tow hitch and ball to my 2006 Jeep liberty. Very fast shipping. They even called me to verify orders and availability. Clear and easy to follow installation instructions. I hauled an [retailer] trailer from Texas to Ohio without any issues. Even bought a trailer and use it frequently for hardware stoe runs.

  • Will Super Titan Ball Mount RP38180 Fit 3 Inch Hitch in Ford F-250
    While we have ball mounts that will work for your 2019 Ford F-250's 3 inch trailer hitch, the Draw-Tite Super Titan Dual Ball Mount # RP38180 is for Super Titan hitches with a 3/4" pin hole diameter, which is too large for your F-250's standard hitch. So what you would need is a ball mount with a standard 5/8" pin hole such as the Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 3" Hitches # 40700 or the adjustable B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS30037B.
