Video Transcript for Curt Hitch Ball - Trailer Hitch Ball - C40097 Review

Speaker 1: Quiet, quiet. Speaker 2: Today we're taking a look at a Curt two inch ATV hitch ball. This ATV hitch ball provides a connection point for your trailer's coupler. It's made from a high strength, hot forged steel construction. Very strong and durable. It features a rust resistant, chrome plated finish to resist rust and corrosion.

And it does come with the nut and lock washer for installation.Now one of the things that's included to make the installation easier, is that it has the wrench flats on the side. So that's a really nice design when you're installing this, you can place a wrench on there as you tighten the nut on the bottom. And it keeps the ball from spinning so it makes installation easier. The torque specifications are located in the included instructions, so please do not discard those when you get this, before installing it.Ball diameter, again, that's a two inch ball. The shanks, excuse me, the shank on the unit is a five eighth inch diameter shank that measures one and three quarter inches long.

Weight capacity is engraved right here on the ball, two thousand pounds. And it's designed to fit ball mount platforms that are at least three eighths of an inch thick, and it is covered with a limited lifetime warranty.That's going to do it for today's look at the Curt two inch ATV hitch ball. Speaker 1: Put it down center.

Building a trailer hitch for my garden tractor so I can easily move my utility trailer around the yard instead of hooking up to my truck every time. The small sized shank on the trailer ball made fabrication easier.

Has performed as needed


This ball was great for my lawn tractor because it had the 5/8" diameter shank, which is the size of the whole in my tractor. Also, all of the hitches on my trailers are 2", so this makes it work well too. This combination was hard to find, so this product works out great for me.



No issues still working as expected


Great service and easy


Great product for moving trailers around with a lawnmower without installing a hitch. Worked perfect for me as adding a braced hitch to my mower would interfere with my bagger. Moves my Malone kayak trailer to the backyard with ease. I will say the instructions are terrible. Exploded diagram was a bit confusing. A few arrows would have helped. Shipping was super fast...super happy!


this is what I have needed for years.. i'l use it with old auto 'clamp-on' hitch.


Works as expected/ intended. Undersized threads allow installation on zero turn mower for full size hook-up. What else could you expect? Chrome plating holds up well in low pressure high moisture environments

Matt T.


Still going! Much hevier duty than the application requires. Chrome still intact


I have been using this product now for some time.
It has performed well and it appears to have years of life left.
The sales & service has been great and the product ( 5/8” shank x 2” trailer ball) has performed really well.
I will recommend this product and company.


This was my 3rd order from etrailer and I always receive the product very quickly and the Customer Service is excellent!


Just what I wanted


I live in Canada and this was the only place I could find a hitch ball
With a small enough shaft for my new lawn tractor. Ball fit perfect
And works great.


Just got my hitch ball today and have it mounted on the mower. I looked all over town for a ball with a 15/8 inch diameter shank. It is just what I needed and came in a timely manor. Very pleased - thank you.


Everything exactly as ordered. Delivery was fast and arrived the day eTrailer said it would. Website was easy to navigate and well designed. Info about product was spot on. I will do business with them again.


Two years ago I was told no one made a 2" ball with a 5/8 shank. I got a 1 7/8 ball with a 5/8 shank and had a lot of trouble with it. I had enough and search the web again. I found Etrailer and my problem was soled. Thank you.


Received exactly what was ordered and
Was unable to find this product
In local stores. Need it to hook up a trailer
and other light landscaping equipment.


Fast ship!
Exactly what I needed. I
needed a 5/8" shank on a 2" ball.
Etrailer had it!
Ball is great quality.


Fast shipping and exactly what I wanted. Highly recommended for any trailer parts and accessories.


I am very happy to find a trailer ball size 2" with a 5/8" stem. I had been unable to find locally. I like your site very much. It is very clean easy to find items and order.


have always found what I need at trailer


I used this on the back of a riding mower to move a trailer around my yard.


Good product, works with the Cub Cadet tractor. Service and shipping was exceptional.


It was easy to order and it was shipped to me quick. I got exactly what I ordered with no problems.


Hard to find fitting part for lawn tractor. Excellent find.


Exactly what I needed.


I will use it on my zero turn to move around my 6x10 trailer on my yard when needed. Quality product and fits nicely on my Cub Cadet zero turn mower!


Just what I needed came real quick great service

  • Does ATV Hitch Ball Come in Coarse Thread
    The Curt 2" ATV Hitch Ball # C40097 does not come in coarse threads, it is fine threaded. The shank on this hitch ball measures 1-3/4" long and is 5/8" in diameter. It does come with its own nut and lock washer so you can secure it to your ATV's ball mount. I have added a link to a video review of this hitch ball for you to check out.

  • Availability Of A 2" Ball With A 5/8" Diameter 3" Long Shank
    I have a few similar options for you, but we do not offer a trailer ball that will fit that description. We have a few 2" balls with a 5/8" diameter shank. The longest shank we offer is the # C40097 which is a 1-3/4" long shank. We do have a 2" ball # 19255 which has a 3/4" diameter shank that is 3-3/8" long. That is the next closest thing we have, if you think you could make that work

  • How To Determine If 1-7/8" Hitch Ball on Ball Mount Can Be Replaced with 2" Hitch Ball
    Possibly! What determines if a hitch ball fits a ball mount is the size of the shank that goes through the ball mount. You'll need to remove your current hitch ball to measure this hole and then find the correct hitch ball below: 5/8" hole # C40097 3/4" hole # 19258 1" hole # 63845 Keep in mind you still need to stay underneath the capacity stamped on your ball mount no matter what size ball you put on.

  • Can Flat Bed Directly Tow with Bumper
    In your photo it looks like there could be a hitch ball hole in the cross brace on the back of your Chevy flatbed. If you can find a sticker or plate that indicates a tow rating, and a hitch ball of the appropriate rating and with the shank diameter to fit correctly, then you can tow. It also looks like there is not a lot of clearance for the trailer coupler, due to the vertical support near that hole. A coupler like # CT-5003-Z has a flat lip around the ball cup and this may contact...

    Finding the right 2" ball will require measuring the ball hole diameter on your current ball mount. Swapping out the coupler won't be necessary.
