Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - A-80 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number A dash eight zero. This is the Curt one and seven eighth inch hitch ball. It's made from a stainless steel construction. You can see here that it's going to include your nut and lock washer. It's got the wrench flats here on the side. That way you can get a wrench on there and get everything tightened down and installed according to the instructions, or the manufacturer's specifications. The shank diameter on this unit, is going to measure three quarters of an inch. Take a measurement of the shank length, from the bottom of the platform to the end of the threaded portion, it's going to be about two and one eighth of an inch. This unit is designed to fit draw bar thicknesses from three eighths of an inch, to seven eighths of an inch thick.

It's going to have a capacity of two thousand pounds. A few other measurements, real quick, that we'll go over, starting with the overall length. It's going to be about four and three quarters of an inch. And then measuring from the bottom of the platform to the top of the hitch ball, that looks like it's going to give us a measurement of about two and five eighths of an inch. Now when installing this, you're going to place this through the ball hole. Then you'd place on your lock washer, which is going to go on the under side of the draw bar, or that platform area. Then you'd place on your nut.

When tightening this down, you need to make sure you get it tightened to one hundred and sixty foot-pounds of torque. Failure to do so could result in hitch ball failure. That weight capacity, or that hundred and sixty foot-pound torque rating can be found in the specifications listed by the manufacturer that come with this product. That's going to do it for today's review of part number A dash eight zero. This is the Curt one and seven eighth inch hitch ball.

The hitch ball is a very solid product as well, but I think I ordered the wrong size for the trailer that I will be getting this Sunday. The trailer I will get has a 2" ball hitch.

Very impressed with the professionalism and product knowledge that Justin B. addressed my special list of materials I needed to complete my project. The shipment just arrived today as promised and I couldn’t be happier. I will certainly be using the company in the future.

I'm so very glad I found etrailer, I purchased this hitch and a ball mount and was easily able to have it installed onto the car without the need to trim my vehicle's heat-shield. It looks as great as it is functional and adds a good bit of versatility to the vehicle as well as a nice cosmetic look when not in use. The hitch tucks nicely under the vehicle and supports weight well. I drive a Fiesta ST with already low clearance on the suspension, but am still able to tow a small trailer which is really nice to be able to do with a smaller vehicle. Excellent product and e-trailer was great to work with an answered any questions I had!

Both the wiring harness and hitch receiver were very easy to put on. The hardest part was separating the wiring clips from the rear lights to put the new adapter in. You have to be kind of physical with it to get it apart. Then the new ones just snapped right in. 20 minute job. The hitch receiver went right on in the pre-drilled/threaded holes in the chassis. This was on a 2006 Toyota Corolla S.

I got a Curt trailer hitch for my 2013 Civic Si. The product was delivered really fast and with everything as promised. The guys from etrailer included detailed step-by-step instructions for installation for my vehicle. I was able to install it by myself with one more person helping out. Very happy with my purchase.

A good product! This is the second hitch I have installed using etrailer and it went as well as the first. Not being a super skilled Tech it took longer than expected, but for me it was a project that needed to be done, and I enjoy a good project when it comes together, no matter if it took a little longer due to an average person's tool inventory and simple jack stands and floor jacks. The instruction videos are the best I have seen as of yet. If you enjoy working with your hands, I recommend etrailer products!

I keep this ball in the trunk of my car next to the spare tire when not in use. It has not corroded at all and looks brand new after 1 year. Mounting the ball is a cinch and only requires an adjustable wrench. No problems with the product so far.

Over priced. Found for $14 at local RV parts store. Good otherwise. It's a big piece of metal, what could go wrong. Unless you know what size you'll need get the 3500lb ball, more likely to be what you need.

  • What Size Hitch Ball Will Fit my 2002 Chevrolet S-10 Bumper Ball Hole
    In order to make a proper selection for a hitch ball, you will need to find out what diameter size ball your trailer needs. It should be stamped on the trailer coupler or frame, either 1-7/8 or 2 inch. All bumper ball holes are 3/4 of an inch, so you will need to pick a ball with a 3/4 inch shank diameter. The ball you were looking at, part # A-82, is a 3/4 inch shank diameter and is a 2 inch diameter ball. If you need a 1-7/8 inch ball, you would use part # A-80. Those are our only stainless...

  • Hitch Ball Recommendation for a 2006 GMC Sierra Bumper
    All bumper ball holes are 3/4 of an inch, so you will need to pick a ball with a 3/4 inch shank diameter. The ball you were looking at, part # 63845, is a 1 inch shank diameter so it wouldn't work for you. If you need a 2 inch hitch ball you would want part # A-82. If you need a 1-7/8 inch ball, you would use part # A-80. Those are our only stainless hitch balls with a 3/4 inch shank. Please note that the A-80 has a capacity of 2,000 pounds whereas A-82 has a capacity of 3,500 pounds.

This trailer ball has a 3,500 lbs capacity Now, If you happen to need the smaller 1-7/8 inch trailer ball, then I recommend # A-80. This ball is rated a 2,000lbs capacity.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2014 Subaru Impreza
    The Curt hitch part # C11408 is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Subaru Impeza Sedan. It would do a great job for towing a small trailer. The fourth hole is behind the heat shield that's under the vehicle. If you check out the install instructions link I attached you'll see more on that. For trailer wiring you'd want the part # 56061 which is a confirmed fit. For a ball mount you then would want the part # C45521. And then part # A-82 for a 2 inch ball or part # A-80 for a 1-7/8 inch ball.

  • Is there a Euro Style Ball Mount with a 5 Inch Rise for a 2016.5 Mazda CX-5
    There are only a handful of Euro style ball mounts and like you said none of them have the amount of rise you need to tow the trailer level with your 2016.5 Mazda CX-5. The best option is to go with the regular ball mount # C45014 and a properly sized ball for the trailer coupler. If the coupler takes a 1-7/8 inch ball use # A-80. For a 2 inch ball use # A-82.

  • How Can 2013 Scion xD Transport Mobility Scooter
    For the 2013 Scion xD only a smaller light-duty 1-1/4-inch hitch is offered. This is because this vehicle's frame cannot handle more than a Class I hitch's 200-lbs tongue weight (downward force from the scooter ramp's weight). Although hitch adapters like # HTAD exist, and these can allow installing a 2-inch accessory item into a 1-1/4-inch hitch, all such adapters cause you to lose half of your hitch capacity because the actual weight load is further away from the hitch.

    For your 2005 Scion xB the hitch I recommend is the Curt # C11487 which has a concealed crosstube for a more concealed look! For trailer wiring the best option is the Tekonsha kit part # 118414 which is very easy to install and has a converter box that is widely considered to be the most reliable one available. For a hitch ball you'd need just the part # A-80 and you'd be set.

    It's hard to say if your Borla exhaust would interfere with the Draw-Tite part # 24801 being installed on your 2011 Nissan Altima. However, I did speak to my contact at Draw-Tite and he informed me that the portion of the hitch that sits between the exhaust tips is 39-3/4 inches. For trailer wiring you would want the Curt Wiring harness part # 56022. For a 1-7/8 inch ball you would want part # A-80, 2 inch ball part # A-82.

The hitch attaches to the vehicles aluminum bumper beam and the convertible is not designed to handle any extra load put on the bumper beam. The hitch comes with a ball mount and pin and clip.

With the weight of the MaxxTow 30x50 Wheelchair Carrier MT70106 at 85 lbs, that would not leave enough capacity for the electric wheelchair you said you need to carry.
