Today we're going to take a look at the Brophy hitch ball, part number CB-20Z. This hitch ball has a 2" diameter ball. It has a 5/8" diameter shank. The shank is 1-5/8" long. It's machined from solid steel bars and is coated with a zinc finish, and is made right here in the U.S. It comes with the washer and nut, and I'm going to show you how you would put this on your ball mount using our trailer hitch demonstrator and one of our ball mounts.
You would just pop the shank into the ball hole there, put the washer right here, and then just finger tighten that. And then you'd want to get a wrench and tighten that further to ensure that there's no rattle and that the hitch ball stays on firmly. That should just about do it for our Brophy hitch ball, part number CB-20Z.
Average Customer Rating: 4.9 out of 5 stars (121 Customer Reviews)Durable ball has a 5/8" diameter x 1-5/8" long shank. Corrosion-resistant steel construction and durable zinc finish provide superior strength.

CB-20Z Hitch Ball 2" x 5/8" x 1 5/8"...It was very hard to find a short shank 2" hitch ball with 5/8" threaded end. Lawn mower only had 5/8" hole with no material to enlarge for larger size without severely weakening hitch plate. Thanks etrailer.com for having this CB-20Z Hitch Ball in stock. 144608
Was glad to locate this hard to find hitch ball to fit my Husqvarna mower. Everybody has them with 3/4 shanks, but I needed a 2 inch ball but with a 5/8" threaded shank in order not to have to ream out the mount hole on the mower which would make it even weaker than it is. I need it to tow my utility trailer across the yard to where I park it, so as not to drive my truck on the yard. The ball is described as zinc plated but it is about as shiny as chrome. 199012

Just what I needed. Fits my Craftsman 42" mower so I can move my utility trailer around the yard. 206263

Fit like a glove. 145344
Perfect for the riding lawn mower. 2" ball makes moving a chipper/shredder really easy. 189738
I needed a 2" ball with a 5/8" shank to put on the back of my Ariens 46" riding mower. I have a 5x10 utility trailer that I store behind my house out of sight. It's much easier to use my mower to pull the trailer in and out as opposed to tearing up the grass with my truck tires twisting and turning. NO ONE local had a 2" ball with the small 5/8" shank to fit my mower. etrailer had it in stock. I ordered it on July 27th...it was in my mailbox on July 30th !! Great service, great price, fast shipping,...product works great! Thanks etrailer! 216352

The product is great. Good quality, and Etrailer was the only place I could find a 2" ball with a 5/8" shank. But what really impressed me was the service from this company. The ball was back-ordered, and I received an email shortly after I placed the order informing me. I thought, "Ok, I'm glad they let me know." But then a few minutes later, I received a personal phone call to let me know it was back-ordered and when they expected it to be in. That really impressed me. Kudos to Etrailer for the personal touch. 189365

The product was exactly what I was looking for, a 2" tow ball with an 5/8" diameter shank. Something you will not typically find in a store. When I am in Mariposa CA, where my mother lives, and attach the ball to the tractor, I will send two pictures. One picture with the ball attached to a Craftsman tractor and a second with the tractor towing a wood splitter. The purpose of this purchase is to be able to move the wood splitter around on her property to split wood that is too large to be moved first. 112306
Did you know most stores dont sell a 2" ball with a 5/8" shank? Well, Etrailer does. I just needed to move my little 5'×8' flat bed trailer around with my mower. This trailer ball fit my needs perfectlyand was shipped lighning fast...as usual..awesome service and product from Etrailer.com...thx guys! 84379

I have a small Murray Lawn Mower. I also have a small 4 X 7 trailer. With the F150 that I drove. I cannot see the trailer to back it up my driveway. Once I found out they made a 2 inch ball with this smaller shaft/shank. I ordered it. This ball is a time saver. Not to mention a back saver as well. ETrailer.com is a great company to order from. Good Price, and items are shipped quickly. I cannot wait to order my next time. 13558

Ordered a hard to find trailer hitch and ball for my riding mower,seems like everywhere I looked ,locally didn't didn't have it. My ordered was shipped fast,was notified throughout the shipping process and the part was excellent and installed without a hitch (no pun intended!). Will continue to order through Etrailer when needed without any hesitation or concerns. Thanks so much for being hassle free and thorough. 272877
I like the product. I could not find the 2" ball in the store. Fleet Farm had the 1 7/8" ball, so I have that one too. One thing I think I would like is a quick release pin. I bought this for my lawn tractor to pull my trailer around. But then when I want to use my other items I have to take the bolt nut off, so a faster solution would be some sort of quick disconnect, since I only need this ball once in a while. 189390

Great ball for my riding lawnmower! Now i can move my small trailer around without needing help or hitching up the truck to move it 5'. One request would be to not place the product sticker on the round part of the ball as this was extremely difficult to remove and left could potentialy gum up my hitch. Thanks for the cool tracking info and quick ship! Eric K. Woodinville,WA 8147
Needed a 2" hitch ball with 5/8" shank for my 28 hp garden tractor. Need to tow off road & street legal 4x8 dump trailer with either tractor or truck. Went to local trailer dealer. He didn't have one, and doubted they exist. I'm glad I found etrailer.com. They had the ball in stock, shipped it super quick. Now my choice for trailer gear, esp. unusual stuff. 75520

LIke many other reviewers before me, I needed a 2" ball hitch with a shank narrow enough to fit into my riding mower (a Sears Craftsman). This product was exactly what I needed and in fact I just used it today when I rented a chipper from the local Agway. The product arrived just a few days after I ordered it. I'm very pleased. Thanks, etrailer. 135010
by: john w06/20/2011
Have'nt had time to mount this on my lawn trctor yet but it appears to be of excellent quality. I don't think there will be any problems. I was told by several lawn tractor dealers that this size ball was not made. Went to your website, put in the numbers and there it was. Ordered it on a Monday and it was at my door in two days!! Thanks!!! 17402
by: Ron U.11/18/2015
I needed a ball for my lawn tractor so that I could use it to move my boat trailer without having to drive my truck through the lawn. The tractor had a 5/8 hole to mount the hitch ball on and etrailer was the only place I could find that had a 2" ball on a 5/8" shank. The price was right and the delivery time was quicker than I expected. 232226

Karen C. I have responded , But here is my review . The trailer ball stud had a flaw in the thread, but a thread file fixed that. I suggested you supply vendor might want to collar the stud with card board or something . You folks had it shipped to me with good packing material. It looks fine and works fine, Thanks. C. King. 181857

I looked all over for a ball that would fit the "Trailer Hitch" I had installed on my Gravely zero turn mower so I could haul an old utility trailer. I was told I could bore the 1/2" hole to 3/4' but it would come too close to the edge of the metal and might not hold. This ball is perfect and fit right in. Thank you! 56315
I purchased this for use on a new lawn tractor that was made with a 5/8" hitch hole for towing. This hitch ball fit the hole, was easy to install, and is well constructed. I am now able to tow my utility trailer in the yard by it's 2" hitch . etrailer is the only place that I could find this, and their service was great! 215394
Hitch works great, even better is the service provided by this company. Kept me up to date on the packaging and shipping of this product. Hitch didn't cost much but the service provided was as if it cost 100 times the amount. I used it on my 1941 Ford 9N tractor, the shaft was the right size for the front bumper. 133879

This hitch ball is very hard to find. This is the only place I have ever found a 2" ball with a 5/8" dia. mount shaft to fit both frt and rear of my Craftsman tractor. I rcvd my piece in perfect condition, promptly. I will never hesitate to order from etrailer in the future. George, Thanks for great srvc. Bob G. 261835
Just what I was looking for...fits perfectly. Hard to find 2 inch ball with 5/8 inch diameter shaft. Quick service. 138879

We are so happy to have found this ball. could not find one locally. we are now able to pull our 4x6 trailer with the lawn tractor, and we have used it so many times, saving us time and effort trying to move stuff with the smaller dump cart, the ball has tripled it's value to us in just a few short weeks. 23935
by: George J M07/06/2015
This was exactly what I was looking for. Can't wait to start pulling my utility trailer and boat trailer with my lawn tractor. Will be a lot easier than using my SUV to move things around on my property. Thank you for the prompt delivery. Got it in 5 days, even with a holiday in there. 209809
by: Wayne N.11/09/2013
etrailer is the only place where I found a 2 inch hitch ball with the 5/8 inch shank. It if for the riding lawnmower that is also used to pull a utility trailer and other lawn equipment. Order was placed on a Tuesday and I received the part on Friday of the same week Great service. 106862
by: Kent M.06/15/2011
Fantastic ! I finally found a 2" ball with a 5/8" shank, that will fit in the hole on the back of my golf cart frame. I use this to put/pull my JetSki in/out of the water. Beats using the truck for such a little boat. Plus, I don't put trenches in the lawn. Finally ! Cool..... 17067
As other reviewers have mentioned, they want a 2" ball with a 5/8" shank for their yard equipment. In my case, I have a Rokon 2-wheel tractor/motorcycle. I need the ball to attach trailer equipment for use around the yard. I also want to reposition my boat trailer as necessary. 62525
Hard to find product at local stores, esp big box retailers. Needed the 5/8" dia shaft for my new lawn tractor which I will use to place my fishing boat in tight places on my property. Smallest dia 2" ball shaft locally is 3/4". Shipping was fast. Thanks! 120561

The Trailer hitch I ordered fits well to my craftsman mower and I am sure it will work well with my log splitter . The fast shipment and arrival pleased me and if I need more trailer parts I will order thru etrailer.com, or call them for friendly service. 103577
I looked locally in 7 different stores for this ball hitch. It needed to be 5/8 inch diameter on the shank to fit a lawn mower. This was a hard to find part locally and I located it on etrailer.com. Thanks for the quick service. 289188
This was exactly what we needed! It works perfectly for pulling our small trailer out to the front of our property (not enough room to get the vehicle back there) so we can haul away leaves, branches, etc. Our backs thank you!! 183302
Hard to find a 2" ball on a 5/8" shaft. etrailer has it all. Placed it on a riding mower to pull a 5X8 utility trailer for hauling brush. It is installed but I have not used the trailer yet. Good webpage and fast service. 272051
If you want a 2 inch hitch ball on your mower this is what you probably need, with a 5/8 shank that is 1 5/8" long. Fits the hole without reaming it out. Hard if not impossible to find a ball like this anywhere else. 284533
Not sure why finding this product for my ATV was so difficult until I googled etrailer.com. There it was, reasonably priced and in my hands in just a few days. Thx for the great product and even better service! 52976

Item I recieved from etrailer was just as described, this is a high quality piece of equipment, this is also a hard to find item and worked perfectly on my John Deere riding mower. Also shipping was on time. 51654
Have shopped in several local stores and could not get the product in the size I needed. Then I found your site and, voila. Product arrived promptly and was precisely what I needed. Thanks to you all. 220553
by: Jon B.03/26/2012
I was happy to find this ball with the 5/8" shaft to fit the drawbar on a new-to-me 1947 Farmall Cub tractor. Now I can pull my trailers with it! Fast shipping, great communication, and a fair price! 35200
by: Steve L09/23/2014
High quality product. I am using it on my garden tractor to tow a wood splitter around my property. Very fast delivery and top notch customer service. I will deal with etrailer again...great company. 152622

I looked every where locally and online, and couldn't locate a 2" ball, with 5/8" shank for my jet ski trailer. Finally found one at etrailer.com. Michelle helped me and she was fabulous! 227532
A ball in these dimensions is hard to find and was glad to find it here. It's just the size i needed for my lawnmower as A 3/4" thread is too large. Received item as pictured and described. 60985
by: Tim S.03/05/2015
arrived quickly. The 2" with 5/8' shank is overpriced because it is hard to find, and it has no flat spot on the base of the ball for a wrench to fit, but other than that, I am happy. 177098
