Fastway Weight Distribution Shank - FA92-02-4214 Review


Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Fastway E2 weight distribution shank. This is gonna slide into your two inch by two inch trailer hitch receiver on your vehicle, and it's gonna provide the attachment point for your weight distribution system's head assembly. This is designed for use with the Fastway E2 weight distribution systems, with a tongue weight capacity of between 600 pounds and 1,200 pounds. This is constructed of a powder coated steel, so it is gonna resist rust and corrosion, and it's going to give us that max tongue weight capacity of 1,200 pounds, max trailer weight capacity of 12,000 pounds. So, it is gonna hold up well and do a really good job for you if you are needing that drop for your weight distribution system.

So, this is a 11 and a half inch tall shank, that's gonna provide these six adjustment holes for attaching your head assembly. So, you've got some range of adjustability there to make sure that your trailer's gonna be nice and level as you're towing. These holes are spaced an inch and a quarter apart, center on center. So, typically, when we measure our drop, we measure from the top inside edge of the receiver tube down to where that coupler is gonna sit. And this is going to work with both your round bar systems and your trunnion bar systems.

So, if we have it in the drop position, like we have it here, our maximum drop when we are using the round bar system is gonna be 7 and a quarter of an inch. If we're using the trunnion bar system, it's gonna be 5 and a half inches. We can also use this in the rise position. So, again, from the top inside edge of your receiver up to your coupler, if your coupler sits higher than your hitch, this is going to give us a max rise, with your round bar system, of 10 inches, and a max rise with your trunnion bar system of 10 and a quarter of an inch. I do want to give you a few other measurements here to make sure that this is gonna be compatible with your setup.

So, from the center of our standard five eighths inch diameter hitch pin hole here, to the center of our adjustment holes, we're gonna be looking at right about. 8 inches, from the center of our hitch pin hole to the front of the shank where our head assembly is gonna sit, we're looking at about 9 inches. And then, we do have this gusset on the backside here. So from the center of our hitch pin hole to the back of that gusset, we're looking at 4 inches. So, make sure that that's gonna line up with your hitch receiver tube, and that the front of your tube is not gonna be able to go any farther than that.

So, you wanna make sure that that pinhole is gonna line up for you. And then, our overall length is right at 12 inches long. So, if you do have a taller truck or a shorter trailer, you're needing a larger drop, or if your trailer sits a little bit higher than your truck, this is gonna work really well for you. Giving you that range of adjustability, and making sure that your trailer's gonna be nice and level. We do have other options available here at etrailer.com, so if you are needing a larger rise or drop, we do have those available as well, so, make sure you're getting the right one for your set up. That completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
