mount diagram

This unique adjustable ball mount from Gen-Y Hitch has a vertical shank that is made up of 6 stacked 2-1/2" receivers. This lets you easily adjust the height of the included ball mount, or any other accessory you choose to use. This mount also has built-in shock absorption to ensure a safe, smooth towing experience. Using technology similar to that found in torsion trailer axles, the Gen-Y mount absorbs road shock, isolating any rough jarring or chucking at the connection point. This prevents the rough motion from transferring from the vehicle to the trailer and vice versa.


Built-In Shock Absorption for a Smooth Ride

Driving over bumps, potholes, and uneven terrain causes road shock, which can result in a rough, bumpy ride and even potentially damage your vehicle or trailer. This Gen-Y Hitch torsion mount is designed to absorb road shock at the connection point to create a safe, smooth ride. This is thanks to the internal construction of the mount, which is similar to that of a torsion axle.


torsion w/cutaway

Pivot points are built into the Gen-Y mount. This allows for movement between the base, which slides into your vehicle's trailer hitch, and the stacked receivers, which provide the connection point for your trailer. When your trailer hits a bump, the stacked receiver portion of the mount will move up or down accordingly.


torsion diagram

Built into the Gen-Y mount are tubes with inner bars that are surrounded by rubber cords. As the receivers rise or fall, these inner bars twist inside of the tubes, attempting to follow the receivers' motion. But the rubber cords prevent the bars from twisting too far. And as each bar turns, these cords compress to absorb the shock. This means that any shock experienced by your truck can be absorbed before it reaches your trailer, and the shock experienced by your trailer won't get transferred to your truck.


This type of shock-absorption system is easy to maintain. Just regularly apply grease to the built-in zerk to keep the components in working condition. No airbags to fill. No small parts to repair or replace. No hassle.


Multiple Stacked Receivers for Easy Adjustment

stacked receivers

This unique mount from Gen-Y Hitch includes a ball mount that can be easily positioned in one of the 6 stacked receivers that sits along the vertical shank of the unit. This dual-ball mount lets you tow a trailer with a 2" ball coupler or a 2-5/16" ball coupler.


pintle hitch

Also included is a pintle lock, which can be inserted into the receiver directly above the ball mount to create a pintle hitch for hooking up a trailer with a lunette ring. Unlike other adjustable pintle hooks on the market, there are no nuts and bolts to remove and retorque when you change the positioning of this hitch. Just move the ball mount and pintle lock up or down to get the proper height and secure them in place with the included pins.


With the 6 stacked receivers, not only do you have the ability to adjust the height of the included ball mount, but you also have the ability to add various other hitch-mounted accessories. This heavy-duty mount is built with a 2,400-lb tongue weight, so you can even use multiple hitch accessories at the same time, as long as there are no clearance issues.


Easily Check Your Tongue Weight

scale

This mount features a built-in mechanical tongue weight scale. The red section on the top of the scale indicates your maximum tongue weight (2,400 lbs). The red section on the bottom of the scale indicates no tongue weight (0 lbs). A tongue weight of at least 1,600 lbs is recommended for the built-in shock absorption to function effectively. This means that the scale's white indicator marker should be in the green section when you hook up your trailer to tow.

Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Shock-Absorbing Adjustable Ball Mount - 325-GH-1326

Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Gen-Y Torsion 2-Ball Mount with Stacked Receivers. This is going to allow you to hook your trailer up to your towed vehicle. This will slide right into your 2" by 2" trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle. As you can see, we do have two, 5/8" diameter hitch pin holes so that you can put your pin through there, make sure it's not gonna wiggle its way out as you're going down the road.

It does not include a pin and clip. We do have lots of options available here at etrailer.com, if you don't already have one. And we also have locking pins available if you want to add a little extra security, make sure no one can take off with this, but then at the front, we are gonna have several different ways of connecting to your trailer, so this is gonna allow you to tow multiple kinds of trailers. So we've got a 2" ball, a 2 5/16" ball and then a ball paired with the pencil lock here, so whether your trailer has a 2" ball coupler or 2 5/16" ball coupler, or a lunette ring, this will work for you, so that's gonna give you a lot of options there on what kind of trailers you can tow, so if you are using this for work or something where you're gonna be towing multiple different kinds of trailers, it's gonna give you a lot of variety on what kind you can haul. This is gonna be a heavy-duty steel construction.

Gen-Y does have a great reputation for building very solid, robust products, this is no exception. Definitely gonna be something that you're wanna leave on your vehicle, you're not gonna want to have to take this off all the time but, because it is so heavy-duty, it is going to give us a gross towing weight capacity, with our 2" ball, of 16,000 pounds and a maximum tongue weight of 1,500 pounds. With our 2 5/16" ball, we're gonna have a gross towing weight of 21,000 pounds and a max tongue weight of 2,400 pounds. So with the torsion system, you are gonna need to have at least about 1,600 pounds for the system to properly engage, you won't want more than that 2,400 pounds for your 2 5/16" ball, otherwise it'll be too much for the system, you're not gonna get that shock absorbing capability. But to help you with that, make sure that you have the proper tongue weight, they do include these tongue weight scales here.

So whichever orientation you're gonna have this in, you'll have a tongue weight scale that you can check out. So if I zoom in here, you can see we've got a red, green and red, and then that white line there, so once you have this all installed, you have your trailer loaded up and connected, you'll wanna make sure that that white line is lined up with that green portion of that tongue weight scale to make sure that you're within that proper or optimal tongue weight range so that the torsion system will engage properly and if you're not familiar with the concept of torsion, at each of our pivot points here we are going to have a square inner bar, that's going to connect our multiple pieces and then we're gonna have these rubber cords on all sides there, so as we hit bumps and experience road shock, that inner bar is going to twist, that movement is gonna be absorbed by those rubber cords. So it's going to help absorb that road shock, prevent it from transferring from our trailer up to our tow vehicle and vice versa, so it's gonna be a much smoother ride for us, absorbing all that road shock or a lot of that road shock helping to keep our equipment from being too worn out and that sort of thing, it's gonna help prolong the life of our trailer and tow vehicle. And one of the nice things about this system is there's very, very little maintenance. So, unlike systems that use an airbag where you have to make sure there's enough air pressure in there all the time, this system's kind of like a set it and forget it.

Once you get it, put on and those cords are gonna do what they need to do to absorb that shock, you're not gonna have to worry about that. There is a grease zerk on the backside here, if I can tilt this back enough, might be able to see that. So up here at the top, we're gonna have a grease zerk. So there will also be one on the bottom, for that bottom pivot point. So it's gonna be very easy to hook up our grease gun, pump some grease in there, make sure everything's well lubricated, moving around, so maintenance is super easy, also, there's fewer moving parts to this design, so fewer things that you're gonna have to repair or replace. So, really nice system there to help absorb that shock. Of course, our stacked receiver tubes here are going to allow us to move our ball to different positions, so if we're towing different trailers, with different ride heights, we can accommodate those, make sure that our trailer's gonna stay nice and level. So each of these receiver tubes is a 2.5" by 2.5" receiver tube, so it's gonna accommodate our ball and pencil lock as well as your other hitch-mounted accessories. But then it's also going to allow you to adjust for the trailer height, so to measure, what you're gonna need, you'll measure from the top inside edge of your receiver tube, but for us, it's about where that top of the shank is, down to where your coupler is or up to where your coupler is gonna be. So you wanna make sure that you're measuring from your hitch to your coupler, if we we're to put this in the lowest position, our max drop would be right at 12", we could then flip this over, use it in the max rise position, up and that would give us a max rise of 12" as well, so 12" in either direction, it's gonna give you a lot of adjustability, so if your trailer is up to 12" lower than your hitch, or up to 12" higher than your hitch, this will do a great job of allowing you to tow those different trailers, make sure that everything's gonna be riding level. In addition to our heavy-duty steel construction, this does have a zinc primer with a powder coat finish, that's gonna help resist corrosion. Our hitch ball and pencil lock do have this matte black finish to them, so again, it's gonna help with corrosion resistance as well as looking really nice for us. This is J684 certified, so trust it it's gonna do a good job, it's also made here in the USA, so you can trust it's made to the quality standards that we've come to know and trust for products made here in the US, so like I said , Gen-Y does build very robust, very solid, beefy products, so you're not gonna want to have to take this off a whole lot but having all those stacked receivers is gonna make that much easier for you to accommodate your Hitchman accessories and adjusting that ball mount for your different height trailers. We do have other very similar setups with the shock absorbing capability, that have even more rising drop, so if you do have an extremely tall truck or a trailer that's very far off from where your hitch is, we do have other options but as long as it's within that 12" range, this one will do a great job for you. So that completes our look for today, again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

Review from a similar Rubber Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


First impression massive, heavy Built Stout. My truck is always hooked to a trailer so I figured I would try a nicer set up I was using the B&W which is great for the average Joe that just needs to pull a trailer every now and then but this is a whole new world first trailer I pulled with It I could feel the difference right away it was smoother the vibrations and harsh thump feelings that I would normally get when pulling the trailers when I hit rough roads or bumps was not as bad or gone. It definitely made a huge difference super easy to move height if needed and an added bonus I didn’t think of is that it pushes the trailer back further so you can get a little tighter turning when backing up if needed and i can open the tailgate and it won’t hit the jack on the trailer. On top of that when people see it it’s a conversation starter There are not many of these out there so they are intrigued by the size and how it works. Bottom line in my opinion if you’re towing all the time it is worth the investment. I would invest in another.

Solid 6” drop hitch that is extremely heavy but well made. Very smooth with bigger loads. Required some modification to my Fab Four bumper for proper fit. I gave it four stars because my hitch didn’t have the set screw option as advertised.

And very simple to install. I will be using it for the first time in a coupe of days.

Review from a similar Rubber Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Quality product. Very Robust. I bought this hoping to dampen some of the shock my truck, which is about 15,000 lbs, transmits to my boat, which is about 8500 lbs, thinking it may help with the boat's longevity. It helps with big shocks for sure, but the hitch needs to be in the top 2/3rds of its rated capacity to noticeably dampen the shock between your trailer and tow rig. It works wonders on my loaded dump trailer.

Best hitch ever... performs above and beyond as advertised. Will never use straight or drop hitch again. We pull our bobcat up the 4wd drive beaches of North Carolina which are often bumpy. This hitch separated the trailer movement from the truck. Well worth the money. Do it once and never do it again!




by:

Review from a similar Rubber Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Very nice, well built hitch, but the torsion part of it only works well when towing near the upper load limit of the hitch. Buy the same hitch without the torsion if you are not going to be pulling heavy loads near hitch capacity. You'll save lots!




by:

Review from a similar Rubber Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


This thing is built like a tank. I have towed a few items that have been reasonably heavy (although not at 21,000lbs). I can say that it does a good job at limiting the aftershock of terrible roads that I have been on. It does a good job and is easily versatile to use with the adjustments available. The hitch should endure travels towing for quite a long time considering how well it is built.

Review from a similar Rubber Torsion Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


My brother and my son recommended this to me. I got to ride along with my son as he hauled a 10,000 lb. camper. Wow! I couldn’t believe the difference it made in the ride! The ride was so much smoother not to mention the wear and tear it saves on the tow vehicle! I’m impressed with the service from etrailer also. The package arrived in great condition, everything was there, and it even came a day earlier than expected! I highly recommend them!!!

Great product
Takes away the jerking
sensations of speed bumps and the occasional pothole.
When you do hit a bump at speed it takes a while for the flexing to settle back into a smooth ride. I equate the feeling like being in a boat. Now that I’m used to it it’s hardly noticeable.

  • Gen-Y Torsion Adjustable Ball Mount Recommendation for Lifted Truck with 2-1/2 inch Hitch
    The Gen-Y Torsion adjustable ball mounts for 2-1/2 inch hitches are incredibly solid ball mount options. For a 6 inch lift on your truck you'd need one that can do a healthy amount of drop. But it really depends on how tall your trailer is going to be relative to the hitch height of the truck. We have options like the part # 325-GH-1325 which can do up to a 9 inch drop, the part # 325-GH-1326 which can do up to a 12 inch drop or the part # 325-GH-1524 which can do up to a 15 inch drop.
