Maximum Weight Rating for 2-5/16-Inch Hitch Ball


Do u make a 2 5/16 ball with a trailer weight of more than 30,000 lbs?? I would have 30,000 ball at max weight, about 90 of the time. I pull 18 ft dump trailers loaded with grain, with a 330 hp Peterbilt, single axle truck. The trailer weighs 9800 empty and lots of times is over 20,000 lbs tare weight. Please let me know if u make a heavier ball and where I can buy one. I am in South La. Thank you!

The highest-rated 2-5/16-inch standard hitch balls we have are 30K like the B&W # BWHB94009 that you referenced and the others that are shown on the linked page. Do note that these balls come with different shank diameters and different shank lengths to match your ball mount. The B&W has a 2-inch diameter shank that is 3-1/2-inches long.
