Comparison Of Three 15,000-LB Blue Ox Weight Distribution Systems


Good day. can you tell me the difference between BluOx SwayPro BXW1500, 1501, 1503, 1506. how many different model is there? I know I need the 1500 series but which one exactly?


Expert Reply:

We have three 15,000-lb Blue Ox SwayPro weight distribution systems.

Part # BXW1500 has an adjustable shank that has an 8-inch maximum rise and 2-inch maximum drop.

Part # BXW1506 includes a shank that has a 13-inch maximum rise and 7-inch maximum drop.

Part # BXW1503 has a shank with -inch maximum rise and 2-inch maximum drop, but is an underslung system that is designed for trailers with a lower coupler.

All three systems are rated for 15,000-lbs with tongue weight capacities of 1,500-lbs.

The best way to determine what system will work for you is to know what your total tongue weight is. The total tongue weight is the tongue weight of your fully-loaded-ready-to-tow trailer added to the weight of any cargo you place behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. You will then want to find a system where your total tongue weight falls near the middle of the tongue weight range for the system. Getting a system that is too small will be useless, but getting a system that is too big will result in a stiff, uncomfortable experience.

I have attached a link to a helpful article about weight distribution you can check out.
