Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - 4284 Review

Today we'll be reviewing part number 4284. This is the Draw-Tite Ball Mount with the 1 inch rise or a 2 inch drop. It has an extra length shank and it's going to be rated 12,000 pounds. This is an ultra heavy duty ball mount from Draw-Tite. It's going to use a hitch ball with an inch and a quarter shank diameter. And we know that measurement simply by taking a measurement of our ball hole diameter, which is going to measure about an inch and a quarter. This is designed to work with 2 inch by 2 inch trailer hitch receivers.

It's got a nice style of shank on it, so no opening there at the rear. It's a pretty heavy ball mount. So it's definitely a heavy duty. We'll take a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It's going to give us a measurement of 12 inches, and then overall it's going to give us a measurement of 17 inches. The ball platform is going to give us a draw bar thickness of 7/8 of an inch, it's going to give us an overall width of 3 inches and an overall length of 6 1/2 inches.

The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rise here of the platform is going to measure 7 and 1/4 of an inch. And from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the shank is going to measure 3 and 1/4 of an inch. So when installed in the rise position just like this, when measured from the inside top edge of the receiver tip of our hitch to the top of the ball platform, it's going to measure 1 inch. That's where we get our rise from. And then we can do that same measurement with it in the drop position and it's going to give us a drop of 2 inches. So the way this system works, is we simply just slide the shank into the receiver tube of your hitch, line up your pin holes and then insert a 5/8 inch hitch pin and clip. Now this item is sold separately, you can refer to our website and use part number PC3 and it's going to refer you to what I'm using today which is a standard 5/8 inch pin and it comes with a clip. It's going to give us a towing capacity of 12,000 pounds and a towing capacity of 1200 pounds.

That's going to do it for today's review of part number 4284. This is the Draw-Tite Ball Mount with a 1 inch rise or a 2 inch drop and it's the ultra heavy duty ball mount. .

The ball mount, p/n 4284, fit perfectly on my 2007 Range Rover. It extends out from under the vehicle far enough to safely attach my utility trailer without damaging the rear of the Range Rover. I recommend this ball mount to anyone needing this application. Thanks for a great product. 405479

Excellent hitch! Needed the extended length as our bumper isn't notched for towing. With a tongue weight of 1100#, there aren't many hitches that offer the extension with weight rating. This one fits perfect! Thanks 282704

This is definitely a sturdy hitch. The quality of the product is undeniable and I'm looking forward to putting my first big load on it. The extra length is just what I needed to get my trailer winch back far enough to lower my truck's tailgate while hooked up. Customer service has been outstanding. Product arrived neatly packaged 3 days earlier than it was supposed to and a follow up email asking if anything was wrong was sent not even a day after receiving delivery. 276682

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Draw-Tite Ball Mount Part Number 4284 Dimensions
    I am not sure where you are coming up with the 4.88 inches for the Draw-Tite Ball Mount, # 4284. We have a photo on the product page showing the dimensions of the ball mount, which shows the distance from the ball mount hole to the weld for the ball platform which is 6-3/4 inches. I went out to the warehouse and measured the length of the ball mount platform and it measures 6-9/16 inches long overall and 3 inches wide. If these measurements do not help, or you were looking at a different...

  • Solution for Adding Tailgate Clearance While Ball Mount and Keeping Trailer Level
    Getting your trailer as level as possible when it's hooked up to your Ford F-150 is definitely a goal worth working towards and I do have an option that may allow you to achieve this while still gaining the clearance you need for your tailgate. Using a ball mount that doesn't feature a sufficient drop will cause the trailer to ride nose high. If you have a dual axle trailer this will put more weight on the rear axle, leading to uneven tire wear and possibly causing damage if that rear...

  • Selecting Proper Ball Mount for Towing Cargo Trailer Behind 2002 County Coach Motorhome
    We offer ball mounts in various lengths to allow for plenty of clearance between the tow vehicle and hitched trailer. In your case you need a ball mount long enough to allow the hitch ball to clear your motorhome's rear bumper and so the Draw-Tite # 4284 that you referenced will work fine since it provides 12-inches of space between the hitch pin hole and the ball mounting hole. This ball mount provides either a 1-inch rise or a 2-inch drop in height depending on which way you install it. You...

  • Ball Mount Recommendation for a Truck and Trailer that Sit Perfectly Level
    Since your hitch height is the exact same as your coupler height your best option would be to go with a ball mount with a 1 inch rise since that is the closest to a zero rise/drop ball mount we offer. The tongue weight of your trailer will cause the rear of your truck to sag slightly which will put your setup at very close to perfectly level. The ball mounts part numbers # 4280 and # 4284 both would work well for you. The # 4284 is just a longer version of the # 4280.

  • Selecting A Ball Mount When Trailer And Coupler Are Same Height
    When towing, the trailer should always be as level as possible. A level trailer will put less strain on the connection between the trailer and hitch. It will also help the trailer stay in line behind the vehicle. I have attached a couple of helpful articles that you can check out that explains towing and how to measure to make certain you get the correct ball mount. After you have taken your measurements you can check out the attached link for the ball mounts we offer. Use the menu...

    The Rapid Hitch Adjustable Ball Mount, part # AM3410 measures 3-3/8 inches from the back of the ball assembly to the closest pin hole and 4-3/8 inches to the furthers hole on the shank. This has a maximum rise of 6-1/2 inches and a maximum drop of 5-1/2 inches and has a towing capacity of 8,000 when using the 2 inch ball and 10,000 when using the 2-5/16 inch ball.

  • Trailer Hitch Extension Needed to Allow Tailgate to be Lowered with Trailer Attached to Vehicle
    I would not recommend any type of extension with your towing setup. Extenders create more torque on the vehicle frame, hitch, drawbar, extender and hitch ball because of the extension, just like adding a pipe to the end of a breaker bar. This added torque reduces that weight capacity of all of the components in the system by 50 percent, so your vehicles 10 K capacity would be lowered to 5 K if a hitch extension is used. I would go with a long ball mount that is just long enough so you...

  • How to Figure Weight Capacity When Using a Hitch Extender or Extra Long Ball Mount
    One thing to note when using a hitch extender like the Hidden Hitch, # 80307, is that the the tongue weight and towing capacity of your trailer hitch will be reduced by 50 percent due to the increased leverage that is placed on your trailer hitch from your trailer. In your situation, even with the towing capacities of your hitch capacities reduced by 50 percent, you are still limited to the 3,500 lbs gross trailer weight capacity and 350 lbs tongue weight capacity of the hitch extender....

  • Dimensions of Draw-Tite Heavy Duty Ball Mount part # 4280
    The platform that the ball mounts to is 3 inches wide by 7/8 inches thick. The shank that s into the hitch is 2X2 inches square. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the ball platform is 3-5/16 inches. If the Thule rack you have is designed to clamp around the ball mount and has a maximum clamp of 2-5/8x2-5/8 inches, it should fit around this ball mount, but you need to measure your hitch. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your hitch to the face...
