Video Transcript for Brophy Balls CB-20Z Review

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do you have a question about this Balls?

  • Trailer Hitch Ball for a Craftsman YTS3000 Riding Lawn Mower Will 2 Inch Hitch Ball CB-20Z Fit
  • The shank of the ball is 5/8 inch diameter. If your lawn mower has a place for a ball, measure the hole and see what the diameter of the ball hole is. You will basically be measuring to see if the diameter of the ball hole on the lawn mower is large enough to accept the 5/8 inch diameter bolt on the bottom of the hitch ball. If you need a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball with a 5/8 inch shank you can use part # CB10Z. If it is not 5/8 inch or larger, then unfortunately this ball will not fit. If...

  • Availability of a Trailer Hitch Ball with a 5/8 Inch Diameter Shank
  • The shank on the CURT Ball, # C40034, is 1 inch in diameter. If the ball mount on your mower has a 1 inch diameter hole, the ball with fit. We do have a couple of hitch balls with a 5/8 diameter shank. From Brophy, we have # CB-20Z (2 inch diameter ball) or # CB10Z (1-7/8 inch diameter).

  • Trailer Hitch Ball Recommendation for a Bumper Hitch on a 1998 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer
  • I would need to know the hole diameter in the bumper of your 1998 Ford Explorer. If it is smaller than the 1 inch shank on ball # 63845, the next size down would be a shank with a 3/4 inch diameter, # TR63822, rated for 3,500 pounds. Down from 3/4 inch we have a 5/8 inch diameter shank, # CB-20Z, which you normally see on lawn mowers and other small equipment so it is highly unlikely it will fit. The best way to measure the opening on the bumper would be to use a sett of dial calipers...
