Video Transcript for B and W Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - BWHB94008 Review

Today we are going to take a look at the BMW 3 Inch Hitch Ball with the long shank, has a raw finish and a 30,000 pound weight capacity. This hitch ball itself will provide the connection point for your trailer's coupler. The shank on it, the threads on it is 12 threads per inch which will provide a nice tight strong grip when it is installed. This is made of a heat-treated steel which is very durable, has a nice raw finish to it. The lock washer shown here and the nut are all included. This part is made in the USA. A few specs on this; the ball diameter is 3 inches and that is a stamp on the top of the ball. Also the weight capacity is stamped on here, 30,000 pounds.

Just to give you a few dimensions, we're going to measure the shank length and the diameter. If we measure the length, you can see it's going to be right at 3-1/4 inches. The diameter is going to be right at 2 inches. Basically when you go to install this, you'll drop the shank through the hole in the ball mount. Go ahead and install the lock washer, take your large nut and once you get that installed, you go ahead and tighten that down and you'll just tighten it down to the torque specs that are recommended for that application. That should do it for the review of the BMW 3 Inch Hitch Ball with the long shank and a raw finish and a 30,000 pound weight capacity.

I purchased four of these two at a time for a construction job my dad was doing the first two we got fairly early and work like a dream so then we ordered two more of them they are the exact same thing unfortunately he did not make it long enough to use the other two but given the opportunity I would purchase them 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


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


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.

Wanted a "Made in USA" product. This was overkill for our needs, but it will last forever. Can develop minor surface rust, but not enough to be a nuisance.

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


I selected this ball to equip a heavy-duty W/D hitch system that I was buying for my new truck. I didn't actually need equipment with this much capacity given that our current trailer only weighs ~5200 lbs loaded, but I didn't want to have to replace anything if we upgrade to a much heavier trailer since the truck can easily handle anything that I'd ever dare to tow. This ball is still in perfect condition (I keep it clean & greased), and the only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is that it was impossible to tighten fully to spec since it didn't have opposing "flats" on the base to put a wrench on and keep it from turning while torqueing the nut down.


Comments
Weve been using this hitch ball for over a year now, and its still in like new condition. Keeping all of the contact surfaces wiped clean and covered lightly with moly grease certainly helps, but the high-grade steel alloy and durable chrome plating probably deserves most of the credit for its excellent performance thus far.

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


Its a good quality ball, threads were smoother than the curt and drawtite balls, Price and shipping as always great with etrailer. good rating. The extra inch part looks good and strong. Im new to the B&W name, after buying some of their products i will only be buying that name brand, and its made in the USA. Pro and cons imo IT needs flats on ball base part where you can put a wrench/adjustable on. Doesn't need much, this would keep you from using a pipe wrench to hold ball while you tighten the nut. Ball needs to be anodized to keep it from rusting. The B&W ball mounts has a high quality black powder coating. Yea the ball itself will rust no mater what when used, but the rest would be protected. Hope my review helps Rob

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


Bought for my old pickup to haul my new gooseneck horsetrailer. It's rated with a much higher towing capacity than what my trailer needs, but I like the security of knowing that. Product is exactly like the photo and precisely the right size.


Comments
Product is still working well for me. Ive noticed a bit of superficial rust, I live in a very wet climate but I keep it slathered in grease and hooked up almost 247 so its not a big deal.

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


The ball rusts at the surface. I took some emory cloth to it, cleaned it up, and sprayed clear coat on it to inhibit rust. Each time you tow, that clear wears off, so shoot it again after each tow if you don't tow frequently.


Comments
I still recommend this ball and B&W mount. A coworker just bought his first truck, and when he asked, I recommended he get a B&W hitch for it, from etrailer of course.

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


The gooseneck hitch in my pickup was threaded to accept a ball. The threads were damaged beyond repair and this was the only ball I could find with a long enough shank to reach through my hitch plate and still have enough threads for a nut on the backside. Worked perfectly. Just what I needed! Ball is high quality and well made.

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


The B&W 30,000 pound ball is an excellent no-frills option. It's extremely durable. We prefer to use the nut AND weld the base to the mounting plate. Reliability and durability are important for our needs. We have a few one ton trucks and several trailers. This ball exceeds the weight rating of every piece of equipment. It's a great option for our needs. Please remember to chock your trailer.
