    Default Finally - Factory 5 ton 20K hitch

    I put one of the 20K hitches I had made for the deuces on an M925 that I am bobbing this week. It is turning out to be a clean addition. I am also adding a gooseneck ball to the top of the insert so it will pull an assortment of standard balls, pintle trailers AND gooseneck trailers.

    That's a very nice heavy duty setup. Have you ever considered selling the side plates you made?

    don't get me wrong its a beautiful piece of equipment but from what I understand balls have a shear rating based on weight, The heaviest trailer I have ever seen with a standard ball is 16k, anything heavier than that would have a pintle hitch. What is the point of this hitch aside from the additional weight it can manage in the gooseneck application? Just curious.

    Default question

    My target client pulls his ferret with a gooseneck. Marketability is the point for this one.

    I believe that ONE hitch that can pull a 2" ball trailer, pintle trailer and gooseneck trailer is a great asset. I have each on our farm and I intend to build a second one for myself.

    I'll throw this out first....I have never pulled a gooseneck trailer....but I have been an OTR flatbed operator for 7 1/2 years in a previous life....also I have trailered with both balls and pintles for private purposes since 75'....granted this beautiful piece of craftsmanship is installed on a Deuce, but I was wondering if it would work with say a 1 ton?....I'm thinking the CG/weight and pivot/balance point would be way off....a multi-tasking hitch is a great idea....

    Justin, hitch looks awesome, is that 3/8" plate for your side brackets? Some paint and it will be super sharp!

    Ball weights, im not sure of the limit but I do have a 2 5/16ths ball rated for 23k, for a bumper pull.
    My gooseneck ball is rated at 30K and is also 2 5/16ths!
