Fastway Weight Distribution Hitch - FA92-02-4315 Review


Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a quick look at this Fastway e2 Weight Distribution Shank. Now this shank is gonna slide into your two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle and then it's going to provide the attachment point for your weight distribution systems head assembly. This is designed for use with the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution systems with a 600lbs to 1,200lbs tongue weight capacity. This does have a powder coded steel construction, so it is gonna resist corrosion and give us that weight capacity up to 1,200lbs. You can see this does have six adjustment holes here that are going to allow us to attach the head assembly.

This will allow us to set our head assembly at different positions to accommodate different trailer heights so that we can tow multiple trailers with our vehicle. These holes are spaced one and a quarter inch apart on center, center on center. So when we have it in the drop position here, if we we're to set it at the lowest height position in that drop position, depending on what kind of system you're using, if you have a round bar system or a trunnion bar system, so our max drop with a round bar system is gonna be eight inches. Our max drop with the trunnion bar system is gonna be nine and three quarters of an inch. We can also flip this over and use it in the rise position.

Again, our max rise with the round bar system is gonna be 12 inches and with the trunnion bar system the max rise will be 12 in a quarter of an inch. Now that max drop and max height is measured from the top inside edge of your receiver tube down to where your trailer coupler is gonna sit. So if your coupler sits quite a bit lower than your hitch, this will work great for you. You can also use it in the rise, so if your coupler sits quite a bit higher, you can use it in that capacity as well. Do wanna give you a few measurements to make sure that this is gonna work for your application.

So you can see we do have your standard 5/8 inch diameter pinhole here to keep this in your hitch. So from the center of our adjustment holes back to the center of that hitch pinhole we're looking at right at eight inches. From the center of our hitch pinhole to the front of the shank, it's gonna be nine inches. So that's going to tell you where your head assembly is gonna sit. And then from the back of our gussick here to that center pinhole is going to be about four inches.

So make sure that you're gonna have enough clearance from where your pinhole sits to where that front of the receiver is going to hit up against that. Make sure that you've got enough room. You should, but just making sure that's gonna work for you. And then our overall length from the very front to the the very back right at 12 inches. So if you are looking to get maybe a larger drop for your weight distribution system, if you've got a truck that sits a little bit higher you wanna make sure that your trailer's gonna be leveled this will do a really good job for you. That completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
