Review of Equal-i-zer Accessories and Parts EQ90-02-4600


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Equalizer weight distribution shank. This is designed for use with Equalizer weight distribution systems. Can be used in either the drop or rise positions, whatever works best for your application. The unit's constructed of a really nice, sturdy, steel, construction. It's got a solid shank, here, on the backside as well. It's been dipped for corrosion resistance when it comes to the finish.

The pinholes on the unit, this is going to be located, here, at the back of the shank. The shank slides into the receiver tube of your hitch. You line up the hitch pinholes with the pinholes in your hitch, and secure the unit in place with the hitch pin and clip, or hitch lock. Now, those items are sold separately. This will accept the standard 5/8 inch diameter pin.

It's made right here in the USA. This is designed for a two-inch by two-inch trailer hitch receiver. The unit's rated, when it comes to the gross towing weight, anywhere from 6,000 pounds to a maximum of 14,000 pounds. Ton weight rating is 600 pounds to 1,400 pounds. A few measurements to go over with you real quick. We're going to take a look at the overall length of the unit, measuring edge to edge.

It's going to give us a length measurement of around 18 inches. Now, if you're using it in the rise position, it's going to give you a maximum rise of 8 inches. That's from the inside top edge of the receiver tip of your hitch to the top of the ball platform on the head assembly. If you're using the unit in the drop position with the head assembly at the lowest setting, it's going to give you a maximum drop of 4 inches. You can see right here that it has all the adjustment holes. It's going to offer six adjustment holes.

Those holes are separated on center by an inch and a quarter. If we take a measurement from the center of the hitch pinhole to the center of the adjustment holes, that's going to give us a measurement of, it looks to be right around 14 inches. If we measure from the center of the hitch pinhole to the very front of the unit, that's going to give us a measurement of 15 inches. To this area right here, it's going to be 13 inches. If we measure from the center of the hitch pinhole to the brace right here, to the base of the weld is about 4 3/4 of an inch. To the actual support right here is going to be a little bit closer to 5 inches. That's going to do it for today's look at the Equalizer weight distribution shank.
