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 Ball Mounts - Adjustable Ball Mount - 325-GH-1826

Today we're taking a look at the Gen Y torsion ball mount with stacked receivers. This is designed for three inch hitches. This is an adjustable ball mount that simply lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle, but it does a lot more than that. This is a very versatile mount. So just like a traditional ball mount, the shank slides into the receiver tube of the hitch on the vehicle. Then you have your hitch balls which provide the connection point for your trailer's coupler.

So with this, as it comes set up, you have a two inch ball, you have a two and 5/16 inch ball, and then you have this tend to lock right here so that way you could tow a trailer that has a Lunette ring on it. Now that's only to be used in conjunction with a two and 5/16 inch hitch ball.Another neat feature is it's fully adjustable, so you have six stacked receivers that will accept the included ball mount and Penta lock as well as other hitch mount accessories. So if you want to maybe tow a trailer here at one of the lower settings and put a bike rack or cargo carrier in one of the upper slots, as long as your application allows for that to fit, then you can definitely do that with this. So the six stacked receivers offers a lot of versatility with this unit.Now you'll notice that there's a lot going on right here. That's because this has a shock absorbing design to ensure a smooth, steady ride.

So this is called torsion. So the technology functions like a torsion axle to limit transfer of road shock from the trailer to the vehicle and vice versa. With this, there's no air bags to maintain. There's a lot fewer moving parts to repair or replace when compared to other shock absorbing solutions. Again, adjustable height design lets you tow trailers of different heights using the same vehicle.

You can use it in the drop position, which would be this position here. You can flip it over and use it in the rise position as well. Whatever works best for you.So basically what you can do with this setup, is you can drop that ball mount lower or raise it higher to match your application. Towing a with a level trailer, it's always going to be your best, safest bet. Another neat thing is referring or regarding to tongue weight.

So this unit has a built in mechanical tongue weight scale, which is located right here. So once you have your trailer connected to it, this scale, will adjust and it's going to give you a pretty good estimate of your tongue weight. So that built in tongue weight scale helps you balance your trailer. That meter lets you know if your load needs to be adjusted or shifted around before you hit the road. One of the nicest finishes I've ever seen on a ball mount, we're looking at a nice heavy duty steel construction. It has a zinc primer and powder coat finish to resist rust and corrosion.You will need to pick up a hitch pin and clip or a hitch lock that's not included, to secure it inside the hitch on the vehicle. It's SAEJ684 certified. It's made in the USA. Again, it is designed to fit into a three inch by three inch trailer hitch receiver and then the built in receivers right here, those have an opening of 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches. Now if you're using it in the drop position, and if you have this at the lowest setting, you're going to get a maximum drop of around 12 inches. That's from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch down to the top of this ball mount platform. If you flip this over in the rise position, you're also going to get about a 12 inch rise and then again the six stacked receivers give you a lot of adjustability in between those maximum positions, drop or rise positions.A couple of capacities I want to go over with you real quick. The two inch ball, which is located right here, has a capacity gross towing weight 16,000 pounds, tongue weight 1500 pounds. Two and 5/16 inch ball, gross towing weight, 21,000 pounds, maximum tongue weight 2,400 pounds.It does come with the pins and clips for adjusting these, into any of the slots. So you just pull that out. You can tuck this back in as two pinholes on it, which I'll show you here in a moment. So that way you can leave it in a stored position. You can also remove it completely if you want to. So to make your adjustment, you can simply just pull this out. You can slide it anywhere. It can fit in any slot. You can flip it over so that way you can use the other side's hitch ball when you're ready.Solid steel construction. Once you find the slot, just simply line up the pin hole. Secure it. Now another neat thing, I like these pins are aluminum. Solid aluminum construction. Very lightweight, but the reason why I like that is they create rust proof connection points. So if moisture gets in there, you don't have to worry about this rusting with a steel construction, which is a pretty nice design as well. I want to show you that Pento lock. So again, two positions on that. You have the end use position and the stowed position.One of the other thing is I want to show you real quick that's included, you'll notice we have these bolts hanging out the side here. Those are anti-rattle bolts. So once you have your accessories installed in these slots, you can actually tighten those down, and as you tighten them it's going to remove that movement right there, which is going to reduce the amount of noise you hear as you travel down the road. Now on the shank right here we have two hitch pinhole diameters. You have a 3/4 inch diameter hole, and you have a 5/8 inch diameter hole. All the holes right here are 5/8 of an inch. And then we have the anti-rattle threaded hole for each receiver slot.Few measurements I want to mention for you real quick. From the center of this pinhole to the center of the hitch balls, I got a measurement of about 17 1/2 inches. From the center of the 3/4 inch diameter pin hole to the center of the hitch balls, I got a measurement of about 19 inches. Last thing when it comes to maintenance, very simple. We have built in grease circ, so I know if you see, but there's one located right here, and one located on the opposite side on this torsion unit here. So all you got to do is attach your grease gun, pump in grease, and that's going to keep those moving components lubricated and working like they're designed to. That's going to do it for today's look at the Gen Y torsion ball mount with stacked receivers for three inch hitches.

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


I won't repeat what's already been stated. Indeed, the last hitch you will purchase! It's a heavy beast - shipping weight was 138 pounds!

My load towing with this is actually a bit under-rated for the sweet-spot of this hitch, but I did not want to use a reducer on my 2019 F-450 to operate the lower-rated Gen-Y. It has definitely made a positive difference on rough terrain (especially off-road). In my case it is mainly to prevent the truck from roughing up the trailer with it's super-stiff nature. Of course this functions in either/any fashion.

This will absolutely cover anything you could ever possibly tow with a conventional style trailer. Anything heavier and you'd be looking at gooseneck (which they also make a torsion hitch for - which I am also strongly considering).

Not any fault of the hitch, but it will set off your reverse proximity sensors. No way around that with a hitch of this size.

I would suggest that it be mentioned that use of this hitch is probably going to require most users to extend their safety chains a good bit. I had 24inch chains with a standard hitch and they fit fine, but this Gen-Y required me to use 38inch chains minimum to not only make it to the receiver chain openings, but to also make it around the hitch itself!

Just thought that it might be helpful to others to know that. Luckily I had some longer Grade 70 chains already!

Overall, no complaints what so ever. I know what if someone happens to rear-end my truck they are going to get an engine block full of Gen-Y (sort of passive perk I say).

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


Best improvement I've made on this toterhome pulling 20K trailer. because of the way this 13'4" tall trailer used to porpoise hard on bad roads, loud banging shock loads on the hitch, I constantly feared structural failure. Now I don't hear or feel the trailer at all!!. Smooth.

See what our Experts say about this Gen-Y Hitch Trailer Hitch Ball Mount

  • Gen-Y Torsion Ball Mount or Shocker Hitch For 3 Inch Hitch Receiver
    Between the Shocker Hitch and Gen-Y Torsion ball mount, I recommend the Gen-Y. Its rubber torsion arms are going to absorb road shock naturally due to its design, while the Shocker Hitch requires constant maintenance that isn't needed with the Gen-Y. It will improve the ride of your trailer substantially without the added work of maintaining an air bag, and because it the entire ball mount is designed to absorb shock, there isn't going to be stress/fatigue on it like there is on straight...
