About This Product

The TowSmart Hitch Ball is a key component to create a secure connection between your vehicle and trailer when towing your valuable assets. The heavy-duty construction is extremely durable with a chrome plated finish that is corrosion resistant. The hitch ball provides wrench flats for easy positioning in the X-mount lockrail system. The lockrail functions as a built-in wrench preventing hitch ball rotation during installation or removal. The wrench flat design is universal to be used with any standard ball mount. It is important to know the total weight of the trailer (GTW) you are towing and the maximum towing capacity determined by the vehicle manufacturer.

      Q:Will the 1" diameter shank fit inside a hitch with a 1" diameter hole, or do I need to purchase a ball with a 7/8" shank, or 3/4" shank?

      A:  The hole and shank should match in description. 1” shank will work with a 1” hole/tongue.

            Q:Wondering if I have to carefully bore the hole out further to receive the shank?
            by|Aug 3, 2020
            1 Answer
            Answer This Question

            A:  The one I bought said it had a .75" diameter shank. If the hole is that size or slightly larger, then no. I have a bar that goes on the 3-point hitch on my tractor. The bar has holes that are approximately .75 ID. It fit that fine with no modification.

            One job - It Failed
            Pros: Long thread allows this hitch ball to mount to many factory bumpers. Cons: Cheap India pot metal was used for the split lock washer. I installed this hitch ball and torqued to 250ftlb as per the manufacturer's instructions. After traveling about 150 miles on a trip, I checked the nut's torque and noticed the washer had broken. This washer has no tempering, and just flattened out and broke. This resulted in the ball loosening on the bumper (it backed off about 3 threads). When looking at the fracture, it's apparent the metallurgy is not consistent at all. This product is a hazard and the J684 rating should not be allowed to be stamped on this pot metal paper weight.

              Perfect for lawn tractor light trailer towing
              Lawn tractors have a 5/8 inch hole on the back of them to tow garden items. Typical fertilizer spreaders, lawn sweepers, etc attach with a pin. Sometimes owners want to move light trailers that normally attach to cars. That is where this ball mount comes in handy. Keep in mind that the steel on the back of your tractor is not very thick. I put big washers above and below the trailer ball for extra support. A good rule of thumb would be that if you can't lift the trailer's tongue easily, don't put it on the back of the tractor.

                We are using this to move a job trailer around using a forklift. It is easy on and off. Works great.

                I received my 10,000 lb. Capacity 2-5/16 in. Ball x 1-1/4 in. Shank Diameter x 2-1/2 in. Shank Length. When I opened the shipping box and saw the trailer ball it looks very strong. The hitch ball provides wrench flats for preventing hitch ball rotation during installation or removal. With the chrome plated finish it is corrosion resistant. It has a 1 Year Limited Warranty. Make sure to follow the instructions when installing the ball to your hitch & it should last for a long time.

                This hitch ball is really heavy and sturdy and solid. It’s clean to the look. 10,000 pound max trailer weight should pull most large items. The shank diameter is pretty standard along with the shank length so it will fit in most trucks that are too smart. I will use this on my Silverado 1500 LT to pull a car and trailer it should do the job. I like it

                Thanks Tow Smart for offering a 2” trailer ball with a shank this length and diameter. Most companies don’t offer anything close to this size or weight rating. Needed the extra size and length to fit a tractor drawbar. Great product at a great price. Stop shopping and purchase one today!
