When it comes to towing on the job, there is no room for messing around. Either your equipment can get it done or it falls to the wayside. Give yourself the advantage with a CURT commercial-duty forged ball mount. Defying all preconceived ideas about heavy-duty towing, these solid steel monsters are packed with the strength necessary to tow virtually anything your commercial receiver trailer hitch can handle. The secret to their strength is their one-piece, zero-weld construction. Each CURT forged ball mount is designed to surpass other 2-1/2" options to accommodate the added stress of heavy-duty towing. Forged steel construction makes these ball mounts incredibly strong and able to tow up to 20,000 lbs. of gross trailer weight. CURT forged ball mounts can also handle trailer tongue weight up to 2,700 lbs., giving them the added advantage they need for towing the largest of trailers. They come with a black carbide powder coat finish to provide the necessary protection against rust, scratches and UV damage so that they are able to face the challenges of hard, honest work. From the construction site, to the industrial park, to the farm, a forged ball mount is the obvious choice, giving you the power you need for towing dump trailers, car haulers, toy haulers, livestock trailers, chopper boxes, gravity boxes, dual-axle utility trailers, RVs, small yachts and much more (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component; i.e. the vehicle, hitch, trailer, etc).All CURT forged ball mounts feature a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" shank, allowing them to fit into any trailer hitch with the same size receiver tube. The CURT class 5 Commercial-Duty hitch is an ideal counterpart for one of our forged ball mounts. With their especially high towing capacity, forged ball mounts are frequently used on full-size pickups, SUVs, flatbeds and other commercial trucks.
