Review of the B and W Long Shank Chrome Hitch Ball


What's up everybody Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're gonna be taking a look at a B&W ball. So this trailer ball's gonna be for your two and five-sixteenths couplers. So all you gotta do is just go on your coupler and make sure it's the right size. And this is gonna have a gross trailer weight of 16,000 pounds. It has a stainless steel construction, so it's going to do its best to resist against rust and corrosion but, as you know, when you use these things, they start to scratch up, doesn't matter what kind of coatings on it, it will eventually start to rust away.

You don't want to get one that's going to show signs of rust, they'll still work the same, but to avoid that, you can just grab a aluminum trailer ball here at etrailer. And we do wanna make sure that the ball mount is gonna match the ball when it comes to its weight rating. Just so we're not really limiting ourselves, right off the bat. So that's pretty much all you really have to do to figure out exactly which one's gonna be best for you. What really sets this one apart It does have a lot of threads.

So, there's different kinds of threads some coarse threaded, which is just kind of spread out, but then this is a little bit finer. So about 12 threads per inch. What that basically does is it's gonna help you torque this down. It's gonna be extra tight and that's always something we need to think about. We are gonna have to torque this down to 450 foot pounds, which is a lot.

We don't sell any torque wrenches that are gonna go up to that, so you might have to take it to a shop or find a way to make sure that this thing is tightened down properly. When it comes to trailer balls, there really isn't a whole lot you gotta look at. One, just match it up with the coupler, make sure it's the right size, make sure the weight capacity is gonna be in line with whatever you're pulling. And of course you just need to match it up with the right ball mount. We have everything you need here at etrailer.

Just take those things from this video to figure out exactly if this is gonna be right for you. It looks good and again, it's just a trailer ball, so it's gonna get the job done. If we we're to upgrade, I guess you can go with the aluminum trailer ball. It is a more premium option, but it's not gonna rust away, but at the end of the day, it's gonna get the job done. And that's gonna do it for a look at the B&W trailer ball..
