1/2" shank trailer hitch ball?
The hole in the rear plate of my mower is too small for a 5/8" shank 1-7/8" trailer ball. I haven't measured, but assume it would accept a 1/2" shank trailer ball. I want to be able to pull around a small landscape trailer in the yard.
Anyone know where I could find a 1/2" shank ball? I've looked all over the net and local stores with no luck. Maybe nobody makes them, though a couple of people did tell me they thought that some motorcycle trailer hitches use a 1/2" shank ball.
I don't want to just drill out my rear plate since the existing hole has rounded edges giving it some strength.
