Product Details

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:I recently purchased a ball hitch for my MTD mower and it has an 5/8 shank which is the same size of the hole on my mower.

          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.

          works great
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like using this two inch hitch ball for towing better than the one I had been using. This one here has a much better sturdier weight to it compared to my other hitch ball. Now with this one here I can tighten it to my trailer hitch and not have to worry if it will come lose. It's got the right amount of length to help safely secure to my hitch and car hauler trailer. I'm am really impressed with this one. I will continue with using this hitch ball with my hauls.

                        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.
