10t tow ball collar solves a problem mounting 10t tow ball mounted on a ute tray back. The customer felt his existing installation needed strength as it would not withstand the loads asserted by a 10t gooseneck coupling.
The 10t tow ball was mounted on 10mm plate and bolted between chassis rails.
10t tow ball dimensions are as follows:
- Length 190mm
- Threaded length 48mm
- Total shank 87.3mm
- Thread diameter 44.4mm
- Shank diameter 50.6mm
We agreed and produced a 120mm x 36mm axle collar.
This collar provided a broader base for the tow ball to distribute the load from the gooseneck horse float.
We chose K1045 due to its higher strength capacity over milder steels,
