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 5 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 5 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.

Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount - Adjustable 2 Ball Mount - 325-GH-1725

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this Gen-Y adjustable 2 ball mount with the pintle lock and the 12 inch drop or rise for a 3 inch hitch. And this has a 32,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now this is an adjustable ball mount that'll let you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank portion right here is what'll slide into your 3 inch hitch receiver on your vehicle. And then up front, you have your choice of either a 2 inch diameter ball or a 2 5/16 diameter ball which'll provide the connection points for your trailer coupler.

Now, with this part, if you notice this also includes this pintle lock accessory. When this is paired with the larger 2 5/16 diameter ball it's gonna provide a nice connection point for a lunette ring coupler. And the lunette ring couplers, I just want to pop up an insert to show you what we're talking about, on some of the large, heavy-duty trailers, they'll use that lunette ring. If you notice in the picture there, it's designed to drop over the ball, but when it drops over that, you wanna make sure it stays on there and doesn't come loose. You use this pintle lock accessory right here.

And just to show you how you would do that is you would just take out your clip and your pin, slide this back out of the way, and then you'll make your connection with your lunette ring over the ball. Once it's in place, then you'll slide this over the lunette ring and then take your pin, once you get it lined up, put the clip in there and that locks it into place. And you can see it's locked there and keeps the ring from coming up over the ball. So if you're not gonna use it for our lunette ring, you can actually just also store it away. It gives you a second hole that you can slide this back, put your pin and clip through there, go ahead and insert.

Now you can see it's out of the way and you can use it for a regular coupler. Now the capacity in this will be determined by the ball size that you use. So if you use this larger 2 5/16 diameter ball, gross towing weight capacity is gonna be 32,000 pounds, maximum tongue weight of 3,500 pounds. If you use the, if you flip this around and use the 2 inch diameter ball, gross towing weight on that is 16,000 pounds, maximum tongue weight of 1500 pounds. If you notice this has 5 stacked 2 1/2 inch size receivers, these will accept the included ball mount and pintle lock, like we showed you, as well as other hitch mounted accessories.

It does come with the 2 3/4 inch diameter stainless steel pins and clips and those are included to secure the ball mount to the shank, the pintle lock to the shank. And what's nice about these, I really like these clips on these. If you notice, when I use them, they're very easy to remove or install. They're called a twist design. It's a really nice design. Instead of the straight clips which sometimes are a pain to try to install, this has a little twist clip on it, and the way you get it off is just by twisting it just like that, comes right off, slide your pin out. And then when you go to install it, just push it. And as you push it, it'll twist and clip right into place. Very easy to take off or install. Now, this does give you an adjustable height. This will let you tow trailers of different heights with the same vehicle, works well if you have a lifted truck, basically this ball mount can be lowered or raised to match your application. Now, if you do use this in the lowest position right here that's the maximum drop, it gonna be 12 inch drop. If you do flip the shank over into the rise position and then use this in the highest position it'll get you maximum rise of 12 inches. And just to show you how the ball can be, slide the pin and clip out for the ball mount and you can see that slides right out, and I'm gonna turn it over to use the 2 inch. And I'm just gonna slide it back in the same place. But as I mentioned, you could put it in the height you need. Once we slide it in far enough, and we get the hole to line up, There we go, slide our pin all the way through, take our clip, again, it's just twist on, and just like that, now you're ready to go with the 2 inch. So pretty easy to choose what ball size and what height to use. This is a heavy-duty steel construction. They do use a zinc primer and a black powder coat on the 2 ball mount and the pintle lock. The shank is a primer with a durable silver vein epoxy powder coat on the shank to resist corrosion. Now, when you do install this into your hitch receiver it will require a hitch pin and clip or hitch lock to secure it to the hitch receiver. Those are not included. We do sell those separately on our website and they do give you two different size pin holes. You can either use the 3/4 inch size or the smaller 5/8 inch diameter. This part is SAE J684 certified. It is made in the USA. Application again, it fits 3 inch by 3 inch trailer hitch receivers. And one last note I do want to mention, because this ball mount has many different dimensions to it, I do recommend for you to go to the product page of this part number to verify any dimension that may be needed for your application. We do list it on the product page. But that should do it for the review on the Gen-Y adjustable 2-ball mount with the pintle lock the 12 inch drop and rise, for a 3 inch hitch..

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.

This hitch has been used with both balls in every height position. Hitch is durable and high quality. It has not been off my truck since I purchased it and is used frequently to tow 10-20K trailers.

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.

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...

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


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.

  • Gen-Y Ball Mount Recommendation for 3 inch Hitch with 9 Inch Rise for Flat Towing
    For a flat towing setup a torsion spring version of the Gen-Y ball mount like the # 325-GH-1825 wouldn't benefit you a whole lot. You don't have enough tongue weight to really activate the torsion setup so I wouldn't recommend it. So what I do recommend is the Gen-Y Adjustable 2-Ball Mount w/ Stacked Receivers for 3" Hitch # 325-GH-1725 which can do the 9 inches of rise you need and since you wouldn't be using the very top hitch opening you'd be able to put the pintle latch in it instead...

  • Is There a B&W Tow & Stow For 3 Inch Hitch With 21,000 lb Capacity
    So there is a B&W Tow & Stow that fits a 3 inch hitch and has a capacity up to 21,000 lbs, but not with a pintle hook. I checked directly with B&W to verify this for you. The 21k capacity is for the included 2-5/16" hitch ball, and if you were okay with that, you can choose from the following, depending on the maximum rise or drop you need: - Max 4-1/2" Drop, 4" Rise: B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch # BWTS30037B - Max 7-1/2" Drop, 7" Rise: B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount - 3" Hitch...
