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 4 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.

Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable Ball Mount - 325-GH-1624

Ellen: Hey everyone. I'm Ellen, here at etrailer.com and today we are going to be taking a look at the gen Y adjustable ball mount.Now this is going to be a very overbuilt, solid ball mount for carrying your heavy trailers and it also is going to have this stacked receiver design that allows you to have a couple different attachment methods with this one ball mount. We'll have two different size balls that come with this ball mount and it also has an attachment, so you can use this with a lunette ring as well. So it turns into a pintle mount. And if you want, you can also utilize one of the free receivers here for any other accessories, like a cargo carrier or a bike rack. So it gives you a lot of versatility with this one piece.

The one caveat to that, though, is that if you are going to put in some other accessories, like a ball mount or bike rack or cargo carrier, you will have to get an adapter sleeve since the openings here are two and a half inch by two and a half inch and most of your hitch mounted accessories are going to have a two inch by two inch shank.This does end. It'll also fit into a two and a half inch by two and a half inch hitch. So it matches in that respect. So, it's only going to work with those hitches or that size of hitch. A lot of vehicles will have those standard now, so it's becoming more common.

So that shouldn't be an issue, but just want to give you that heads up right off the bat.Let's take a closer look at our ball Mount and see some of the finer details here. You can see that this has a really nice hammer tone finish to it. That helps to give it a good corrosion resistance over time. Even on our ball mount and that pintle attachment, it's going to still have a nice black powder coat finish. So definitely going to help it stay looking nice for many years to come.The pros and cons with this particular ball mount is that it is going to be so heavy and so bulky.

Some people like that, they like having a big, chunky ball mount on the back of their vehicle. It's really well built, actually overbuilt for a lot of applications. But if you're not going to be leaving this on your vehicle, you're going to be taking it on and off, it can be a little bit cumbersome since it does weigh quite a bit. It weighs about 65 pounds. So that's something to keep in mind as well.

But if that doesn't deter you, I think it's a really nice looking ball mount and it's a pretty straight forward design.Again, it comes with our two ball platform. We'll have the two and five 16th inch ball and the two inch ball. The attachment to use this with a lunette ring as well and then the two pins and the corresponding clips to get those accessories installed. Now, it does not come with a pin and clip to attach this into your hitch, nor does it come with a pin and clip to attach your accessory, if you are going to be using that. So those are things that you would have to pick up on your own, or a lot of times, if you are using an accessory, it should come with its own attachment method.Now, back here, we do have two different size pinholes. One is going to be bigger than the other. So let's take a couple of measurements and go over those real quick. So this one is going to be five eighths of an inch in diameter and this one is three quarters of an inch. So, that will correspond with different styles of hitches. Our attachment points here are going to be also that three quarters of an inch diameter. So it just depends on how your hitch is set up or what you're going to be mounting this into.As far as the drop and rise you can get out of this, you can use it in either the drop or rise position. Either way you use it, this would be the drop. If we we're to flip it over, that would be the rise. It's going to give you a max of nine inches. That's measuring from the inside top edge of the receiver tube to the bottom of the ball platform. That would actually be the inside edge of the receiver tube on your vehicle's hitch to the top of that ball platform. So that's where we get that measurement from and in either direction it's going to be nine inches.The towing capacity is going to change per which ball we're using. So, for the two inch ball, our gross towing weight is 16,000 pounds. Our maximum tongue weight is 1500 pounds or 1,500 pounds. For the two and five 16th inch ball, our gross towing weight is 32,000 pounds. For the max tongue weight, it's 3,500 pounds or 3,500 pounds.As far as height, or just the overall outside dimensions of our ball mount, just from the front of that adjustment face to the back is about 13 inches long. Top to bottom it's about 12 and three quarter inches. About 12 and three quarter inches from top to bottom there. If you have the ball mounted in the lowest position, it probably will drop down a little bit further than that.So, from that hitch pin hole or inaudible 00:05:00 the center of the ball platform, it's about four and a half inches. So if we we're to add that onto our 12 and a half, that's going to give us about 17 inches of total space that this is going to take up. So you want to make sure you have this on a vehicle that's going to have a pretty high ride height, maybe some trucks or bigger SUVs to put this on. With that ball platform in place, the total length of our ball mount is roughly 18 inches. I say roughly, cause I'm just having to eyeball it here from the front of that face to the back of our hitch, or the back of our shank there. So I would say roughly 18, maybe 17 and a half inches long from front to back.It does give you some adjustability. We have our four different stacked receivers there. So you can adjust that all along. If you are going to be using that pintle attachment though, keep in mind that that has to be mounted above the ball platform for it to be usable. So that does limit you on how many settings you have for the adjustment height.That's about all there is to it. It is made in the USA and should be a great addition to your towing capacity. I think it's a really well-built heavy duty ball mount. I hope this video has been helpful in deciding if it's going to be the right one for you. Again, I'm Ellen here at etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.

This review is for the install only, as i have not towed with the hitch yet...
Well, getting the hitch into the receiver was a major pain in the rear. So much powder coating made it very difficult to insert. I hade to use a 5000lbs tie down ratchet, and it took about 45 minutes to complete the task. Not happy with that portion at all.

Review from a similar Mega Drop Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I have both ball and pintle hitch Trailers. That is why I bought this hitch. The hitch it self is well built but the Paint job is not that great . I have had it a year and most of the paint on the Shank ( another reason I bought it for the 3" shank to fit my receiver on my ford Superduty) is pretty much gone. The hitch it self still clanks around in the receiver .I wish there was an adaptor to fit over the Larger ball so that my pintle eye would not move around so much.


Comments
For the finish I can only suggest to use sand paper lightly to remove the rust and then touch it up with a rust resistant paint. With regard to the rattle, when I first read over the review, I was thinking it was the ball mount in the receiver that was loosening up versus the ball attachment into the ball mount. I reached out to the manufacturer however I was not able to see a ready made solution to tighten that up.

Review from a similar Mega Drop Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great product. Always the best. This is the 3rd one we have purchased for our heavy trucks. My hitch came all scratched and banged up from poor shipping. Not a positive for a $xxx hitch. Will be looking for a different distributer than etrailer in the future for these products. Great product, 5/5, however etrailer did no favors on this product.


Comments
I see that your hitch has received some scratches on it due to shipping. This does tend to happen and when it does, we recommend using a Rust-oleum type paint to cover up any scratches and prevent corrosion in the future during use. I have a link below for your reference.

Review from a similar Mega Drop Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Great product. Very stout, but also very heavy. Only complaint is the weight, particularly because I am not a full time trailer “tower” so I install/remove frequently. Definitely peace of mind in terms of not having to worry about ball mount issues with 2500#+ tongue weight.

The hitch is great except for one problem. The ramp in front of the 2 5/16 ball that is for a pintle hitch is cracking at the weld.

Review from a similar Mega Drop Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


Been towing with this hitch for a year now. It’s the best hitch I’ve ever owned. The longest I’ve ever kept the same hitch. Easy to switch heights, strength, it’s bulletproof. I’ve dropped a loaded dump trailer onto the ball after not getting it lined up correctly. The weight would have bent any other hitch. This Gen-Y laughed at it.

well built and easy to change heights for different trailers. eliminated a lot of play from reducing down to use 2" hitches in the 3" receiver

Review from a similar Mega Drop Ball Mount in Trailer Hitch Ball Mount


I have been pulling this trailer daily for 19 years. Have been through a few hitches in that time. They all seem to bend over time. This one has just been installed and I must say it is the best quality heavy duty hitch I have ever purchased. Can't wait to pull with it...

  • What Hitch Size Has Best Weight Capacities for 2002 Ford F-350
    The highest capacity hitches we offer for your 2002 Ford F-350 are 2-1/2 inch hitch sizes like the Curt # C15810 that has a 20,000 lb towing capacity. If you are looking for the strongest setup this would be the way to go for your truck. For an adjustable ball mount the highest capacity options fit the 2.5 inch size too like the part # 325-GH-1624 which has a 32k capacity.

  • How Much Drop From Gen Y Adjustable Ball Mount is Needed for Trailer with 25 inch Tall Hitch
    We see a lot of coupler heights around the 14 to 16 inch height for smaller trailers. So for a trailer that has 25 inches from the top of the hitch opening to the ground a 9 inch drop is going to be about right. So for a Gen Y adjustable ball mount that has that much drop and fits a 2-1/2 inch hitch we have the part # 325-GH-1624 for a non cushioned ball mount or the # 325-GH-1325 for a cushioned solution.

  • Is Weight Distribution Needed for 2017 Ram 2500 with Dump Trailer
    I do have some great options for your 2017 Ram 2500 to help with towing but I don't really recommend using a weight distribution system on a dump trailer, there's usually not much space on the frame and the frame rails are usually rather large. This is all in addition to the ever changing tongue weight. Instead, I recommend a set of air bags since you can adjust the pressure inside for however much load you have on the trailer at any one given time. The Air Lift LoadLifter 7500 XL Air Helper...

  • Recommended WD System for a 17,000 lb GVWR Trailer Towed by a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    When choosing a Weight Distribution (WD) system you will want to find one with a Tongue Weight (TW) range that the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your towing setup falls in the middle of. To find the TTW of your towing setup you will need to add the TW of your fully loaded and ready-to-go trailer along with the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Keep in mind that a properly loaded trailer will have a TW that is 10-15% of the loaded weight of your trailer. Since...
