Eau Claire, Wisconsin (PRWEB) July 08, 2015
CURT Manufacturing, LLC., the leading manufacturer and marketer of USA-made towing products, has added four new mounts with 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” shanks in the areas of weight distribution hitches and pintle hitches. With the demand for 2 1/2” receiver mounts increasing, CURT is expanding on its previous offering of 2 1/2” ball mounts and added a 2 1/2” weight distribution replacement shank (#17128), a 2 1/2” adjustable pintle mount (#48339), a 2 1/2” forged receiver mount pintle hook (#48010) and a 2 1/2” forged receiver mount ball & pintle combination (#48012). All of these heavy-duty mounts are made with solid steel and are designed to fit CURT class 5 Commercial Duty hitches or any trailer hitch with a 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” receiver tube opening. Best of all, they eliminate the need for a reducer sleeve or adapter and allow for a class 5 hitch to be used to its full potential.
The 2 1/2” WD replacement shank is a heavy-duty, solid steel weldment, offering the high capacity needed for towing large RV trailers and car haulers. It features a maximum rise of 4 3/4” and a maximum drop of 7 3/4”, allowing it to adjust to multiple trailer heights. The new 2 1/2” model is compatible with all CURT weight distribution hitches.
Likewise, the 2 1/2” adjustable pintle mount provides a similar solution for a mounted pintle hook or ball & pintle combination. It features a thick, bent face plate for increased strength and provides three height adjustment positions with a total plate height of 7 1/4”. The 2 1/2” adjustable pintle mount has a maximum gross trailer weight (GTW) capacity of 20,000 lbs.
In the area of direct receiver mounts, CURT has added two pintle options. The 2 1/2” forged receiver mount pintle hook fits all standard lunette eyes with a 2 1/2” inside diameter and has a GTW capacity up to 20,000 lbs. The 2 1/2” forged receiver mount ball & pintle combination also accepts up to 20,000 lbs. GTW, with the trailer ball matching this capacity for standard coupler towing. It comes with a 2 5/16” diameter trailer ball and fits lunette eyes with a 2 1/2” or 3” inside diameter. Both receiver mount pintle options come with solid shanks and easily insert into any class 5 trailer hitch with a 2 1/2” receiver tube opening.
