Blue Ox' Diamond Hitch™ is
convenient, strong and safe
PENDER, Neb. — Blue Ox has added a premium
heavy-duty hitch to its portfolio of products.
The Diamond Hitch™ is convenient to use, has
great safety features and is designed for easy
Blue Ox, a manufacturer of towing, braking,
steering and hitch systems, acquired Diamond
Hitch from Paul Roberts this past fall. "The
Diamond Hitch fits well with the other products
we offer. This new product allows us to offer a
hitch solution for heavier trailers," said Jay
Hesse, president of Blue Ox. "This hitch is good
for RVers who want to haul heavier rigs, but it
also is a great option for people who have to
haul heavy work trailers. This includes farm and
ranch trailers, construction trailers and auto
haulers. Just about any type of heavy towing is
a candidate for Diamond Hitch."
Hesse continued: "We presently have Diamond
Hitch as a gooseneck. In the near future, we
will expand the design to include fifth wheel
trailers as well."
Two features that make Diamond Hitch an
exceptional premium product are its unique
Inverta™ Ball design and the spring loaded
locking ball system:
- • The Inverta Ball design allows you to
easily remove the ball, flip it upside down
and store it in the hitch, leaving the bed
of the pickup unobstructed and flat.
• The lock to hold the ball into place is
designed in the ball. No more reaching into
a muddy fender well to pull a lever or
release a lock or cable. The spring loaded
locking system also eliminates any chance of
forgetting to engage a fender well locking
mechanism. A locking tab allows visual
verification that the ball is locked into
Another safety factor designed into the ball:
to remove it you must rotate the ball, lift it
and lower it in sequence, eliminating the chance
of the ball accidentally being unhooked from the
hitch. This means your load, whether it's your
prize horses, your racecar or your RV, ride
Engineers designed Diamond Hitch for heavy
duty towing. It easily handles a 30,000-pound
trailer and load, and it has a beefy 7,500
pounds tongue weight capacity. Diamond Hitch is
a proven and independently tested hitch. Grade
Five half-inch fasteners are used to attach the
hitch to the truck frame — heavy enough for this
Its modular design allows for quicker
one-person installation and added strength. The
hitch bolts directly on to the frame of the
pickup under the bed. There is no need to remove
the truck bed and no welding is required.
Diamond Hitch models are designed with specific
trucks in mind. This keeps drilling in the truck
frame to a minimum. The hitch uses as many of
the existing bolt holes in the truck frame as
possible, and no drilling is required at all to
install Diamond Hitch on the new Dodge
hydraframe. Blue Ox also sells Diamond Hitch
components separately for truck body builders to
use on one-ton truck beds.
With the below the bed design, only one
four-inch hold is drilled into the truck bed.
The Inverta ball design allows for complete
truck bed use when not towing a trailer.

Ox has made famous with its other products
