Video Transcript for Curt Ball Mounts - Fixed Ball Mount - C45430 Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're taking a look at the Curt heavy duty forged ball mount for three-inch hitches. Now this ball mount lets you hook up your trailer to your tow vehicle. The shank slides into the hitch on your vehicle, and then the ball platform provides a mounting point for a trailer hitch ball, which is sold separately. We have a lot of those available at etrailer.com if you're in need of one.This unit is a solid one-piece forged steel construction, very strong and durable, no weak points, no welds. Features a corrosion resistant carbide black powder-coated finish to resist rust and corrosion, and look good for many years. You can use this in either the drop or rise positions, so both positions are available to ensure level towing.

That is secured in your hitch, you will need a hitch pin and clamp, or a hitch lock. Those items are sold separately and available at etrailer.com. The pin holes on this unit will accept a standard five-eighth inch diameter pin.Again, it is designed to slide into a three-inch by three-inch trailer hitch receiver. The unit offers a maximum gross trailer capacity of 21,000 pounds and a maximum tongue weight of 2,800 pounds. A few measurements I just wanna mention for you real quick.

I did take a measurement of the distance from the center of the hitch ball hole going straight back to the center of the hitch pin holes, and I got a measurement of nine inches. When you're using this in a drop position, it's gonna give you a drop of four inches. That's from the inside top edge of the receiver tube of your hitch down to the top of the ball platform.When you're using it in the rise position, it's gonna give you a rise of two inches from the inside top edge of the receiver to your hitch up to the top of the ball platform. And then when choosing the hitch ball, you wanna make sure you get a hitch ball that has a shank that fits this hole appropriately. And the diameter measurement there is an inch and a quarter.

The product is also covered with a limited lifetime warranty, and that's gonna do it for today's look at the Curt heavy duty forged ball mount for three inch hitches.

I have a pickup with a 3" receiver, and this fits well. The pickup is rated for up to 21,000 pounds, and 10% tongue weight, which this mount supports/exceeds. The three times I have rented a heavy duty trailer since having this setup, the guys at the rental location say "Thats a stout ball mount!" I don't have any plans to tow beyond 10k, but there is the possibility, so I bought the ball mount and ball to support 21k. 659539

Review from a similar Curt 3 Inch 21K in Ball Mounts


The ball mount and stainless steel ball are exactly what I wanted. This is a 3" square hitch, so pretty heavy stuff. It is finished nicely and I'm looking forward to seeing it on my truck tomorrow morning. The shipping was free and arrived in time for the weekend! Could not be a better way to do business. Thank you. 612262

  • Recommended Pintle Hitch and Lunette Ring for 2015 Ford F-750 with 23,800 lb Trailer
  • For your 2015 Ford F750 boom truck, there is not a ball mount rated for that weight capacity. The largest capacity is 20K for a 2-1/2 inch hitch like # C45458 or 21K for a 3 inch hitch receiver like # C45430. We don't have a trailer hitch receiver rated that high either. It appears the truck does have the towing capacity to handle that trailer, but you will need to use a direct mount like the Curt Pintle Hook - Bolt On - 30,000 lbs # C48215. A pintle hook and lunette ring combination...

  • Adjustable Ball Mount for 3 Inch Hitch on 2018 Ram 2500
  • We do have adjustable ball mounts that fit the 3" hitch on your 2018 Ram 2500 but there is not an option for an adjustable ball mount from Curt at this time; instead I strongly recommend checking out the B&W Tow & Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS30040B. The Tow & Stow will fit your 3" hitch and will give you a maximum drop of 7-1/2" and maximum rise of 7". It comes with a 2" hitch ball that has a maximum capacity of 7,500 lbs and a 2-5/16" hitch ball with a maximum capacity of 21,000 lbs. The...
