Review from a similar Heat-Treated Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


The ball came earlier than expected which was awesome. My husband put it on his truck as soon as he got it out of the post office. We haven't pulled anything with it yet but are excited to take a weekend trip with our side by side soon. It is definitely sturdy enough to pull our tractor from one farm to the other when mowing season comes back in. Thank you for a high quality part.


Comments
Very happy with this product. We have pulled our tractor and car carrier with it as well as a friends Fountain boat none of which are lightweight. No problems at all. Would buy from this vendor again.

Review from a similar Heat-Treated Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


The B&W 2 5/16" ball is of a high quality build, just what I would expect. My only concern is that the base of the ball has no flat grab sides for a wrench to hold it still while the nut is being tightened. Once I got it as tight as I could, both the nut, shank and ball rotated as one. I did not want to use a pipe wrench to hold the base of the ball and gouge tool marks into the metal and finish. Something with this much weight rating, I think, should be able to be tightened down to a recommended torque spec, which was absent from the mounting instructions. I tightened it as much as I could and put a torque stripe along the mount, nut and threads... So far, it has not moved. Other than that, I think its great.


Comments
Our installers typically wrap the trailer ball with a rag or towel so that they can get a good grip on the ball but not damage the finish.

Review from a similar Heat-Treated Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


Used this hitch ball for a custom gooseneck hitch I made for a semi, the original was to short so in external articulation I would scrap the gooseneck and hitch. Buy this ball with the 1” lift in it really helped and I can’t get the hitch to hit anymore! Working great

Review from a similar Heat-Treated Hitch Ball in Trailer Hitch Ball


s a full tim RVer, I've had the hitch now for about 14 months and have to say with the exception of it not coming apart on me, I'm pretty disappointed with the condition. Ive got about 10k plus miles on it. See attached photos. Its very noisy. It likes to slam forward and aft. They put pucks on the side to side but not forward to aft. The paint almost immediately started to flake with in one month of use and continued to..to-date. The bolt holding the yoke preventing forward and aft movement sherred with only 80 inch lbs of torque...twice. the factory and the replacement they sent me. Finally I had to upgrade the bolt to a harder bolt to alow me to get to the required torque of 100 inch pounds. The bolt has to be torqued every trip. Long trips...every day. The design distributes the load on the flat bed and bends bends the bed. Unfortunately, there is not much out there to choose from so its give and take. Its done the job but would like to see it hold up better and see some design changes. I just ordered a new base today so we will see how it does.

  • Height of 2-5/16 Inch B&W Trailer Hitch Ball
    From the base of the mount to the top of the ball is approximately 3 inches for the 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # BWHB94001. I have added a link to a video review for you to check out as well of this 12,000 lb capacity hitch ball.

  • Recommendation of A-Frame Trailer Coupler for use with TJDA-5000S
    I do have a couple solutions for you but the Square A-Frame Jack # TJDA-5000S is not compatible with the round jack mounting hole on the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler # DM14793-52. For a trailer coupler that features a standard 2-1/4 by 2-1/4 inch square jack mounting hole you can use A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Square Jack Hole # CA-5280-QB. This jack uses a 2-5/16 inch ball and has a capacity of 15,000 lbs and is fully compatible with # TJDA-5000S. A 2 inch version is not available...

  • Trailer Wiring and Weight Distribution Ball for a 1993 Dodge W350
    For your 1993 Dodge W350 you can use Curt trailer wiring harness # C55317. It plugs in line with the truck tail light wiring. But if you are concerned about overloading the truck wiring I recommend a hardwire, powered harness # 119147KIT. This will draw power for the trailer lights directly from the truck battery. Then to add a 7-Way you will need # ETBC7. I have included some links that show and explain the # ETBC7 installation. The links also explain how a brake controller will...

  • Availability of Hitch Ball Welded to Ball Mount
    We actually have exactly what you are looking for - no modification needed! I have attached a link to our selection of ball mounts that have 1 hitch ball included, like the Curt # C45154 rated for 7,500 lbs. You can filter through the options to find the correct ball mount for you application. If you would rather have a completely powder coated option with multiple hitch balls I recommend using the B&W Triple Tow Tri-Ball Mount for 2" Hitches # BWBMTT31004. This features 3 hitch...

  • Will Curt 8" Hitch Extender Work With Towing 3500lb Boat With 2020 Ford Expedition?
    Thank you for your business! The Curt Hitch Extender for 2" Hitch Receivers - 8" Long # C45791 you purchased has a maximum tongue weight rating of 350lbs, and a maximum trailer weight rating of 3500lbs, but also reduces the capacities of the trailer hitch receiver installed on your 2020 Ford Expedition by 50%. As long as your trailer hitch receiver has a 7000lb or higher towing capacity, and your boat trailer does not exceed 350lbs tongue weight or 3500lbs trailer weight you will...

  • Can I Use WS07 on Hitch Ball That Is Not Weigh Safe and How to Switch Out 2 Ball with 2-5/16 Ball
    The Replacement 2-5/16" adapter part # WS07 is designed to replace the adapter on Weigh Safe hitch ball part # WSUN-1. The WSUN-1 is rated for 10,000 lbs of weight. The magnets are strong enough but I do not know what the ball on the moving truck is rated for so I cannot guarantee the moving truck ball with the adapter is safe for towing the car trailer. If the ball on the moving truck is rated for the weight of the trailer, it is completely safe to use the adapter. Another option is...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver For 2006 GMC Savana 3500
    We sure do! I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class IV - 2" # e98861 which is confirmed to fit your 2006 GMC Savana 3500 as long as it is not a cab and chassis model. The # e98861 has a 1000lb tongue weight rating and 10000lb trailer weight rating which gets bumped up to 1200lb tongue weight and 12000lb trailer weight making it a perfect option for towing a trailer, and carrying a bike rack or cargo carrier.
