Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub - DA54FR

Ellen: Hey, everyone. I'm Ellen, here at etrailer.com, and today, we're going to be taking a look at the Dexter Axle. This is going to be an idler hub for your axle face, so it replaces any kind of worn out component that you might already have, it gives you a new axle face to attach your wheel to the axle.So it's going to be an e-coating there to resist any kind of rust and corrosion. As far as the application this will work for, it works for trailers with a 2100 pound axle capacity or 2,100 pounds. The bolt pattern is going to be five on four and a half, so if we go from one of those bolts to the exact opposite side, that's going to measure four and a half inches. That gives us five on four and a half and then this is going to have a half inch bolt design with a weight capacity of a thousand pounds.All the bearings, races and seals, those are going to be sold separately.

The race is actually the only thing that is included with this and are already installed, but the seal and bearings will be available separately. You can find those right here at etrailer.com using the part numbers on the product page as well.Can see on the other side. That'll be our inner race there. So that's where our bearings ride along and it's going to make sure that everything flows smoothly for this. But that's pretty much going to do it for our look at the Dexter UFP idler hub.

I hope this video has been helpful in deciding if this is going to be the right piece for you. If not, we do have other configurations available. Thanks for watching.

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums

  • Replacing Hubs, Bearings, Seals, and Races on a Trailer
    Yes the Dexter Axle UFP Idler Hub - 5 on 4-1/2" - E-Coated - 2,100-lbs Item # DA54FR is compatible with your axle. However, we do not have a hub kit available with the bearings and seals. I recommend Replacement Trailer Hub Bearing - Item # L44649 and Grease Seals (pair) Item # RG06-020

  • Needing EZ Lube Boat Trailer Hub With 1.25 Inch ID Grease Seal and L44649 Bearings
    We don't offer a hub kit that meets all the parameters you mentioned, we have a couple of options that would work. Your boat trailer used an oddball hub/spindle combination, which was used by Ranger and a couple of other boat manufacturers with the idea being that you could only get the replacement parts from them. We do have an option, but you'd need to purchase the correct EZ Lube grease cover separately. The CE Smith Hub Assembly, part #CE13311 is compatible with 8 to 12 inch wheels....

  • Replacement Hub For EMPI Spindle On A Dune Buggy
    To determine if we have a hub that will fit your EMPI spindle you will need to take measurements of the spindle. A Digital Caliper # PTW80157 will be required to determine the correct sizes for the Bearings and Grease Seals. See picture below for measurements. I don't believe the Dexter Axle UFP Idler Hub # DA54FR will fit as it uses a straight spindle and pictures I see of EMPI show a tapered spindle. Let me know what measurements you have and I can tell you if we have something...

  • What Would Cause Grease Seal to Blow Out Using EZ Lube Spindle Fitting
    It's very easy to pump too much grease into EZ lube spindles and end up blowing out the grease seal like you did. In reality we recommend just greasing by hand and if you use the EZ lube fitting to go very light with it. None of the greases expand at a drastically different rate.

  • Trailer Idler Hub For Short Spindles With L44649 Inner and Outer Bearings
    It sounds like you have an older style trailer axle with the short spindles. The Dexter Axle UFP Idler Hub # DA54FR is designed for those short spindles. The races are already installed so you will need 2 Bearings # L44649 per hub and one Grease Seals # RG06-020 per axle. The CE Smith Trailer Idler Hub Assembly w/ Case # CE13315 is designed to fit the newer BTR spindles that are more commonly found on trailers.

  • Possible Replacement Hub With 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern for UFP Short Spindle
    Only one of your photos came through, and it can't be visually identified but there is one potential option we have for a hub for a shorter UFP spindle with the Dexter Axle UFP Idler Hub - 5 on 4-1/2" - E-Coated - 2,100-lbs # DA54FR. To know for absolute certain if this will work, however, you will need to do some measuring with the Digital CaliperĀ # 301-17068. You will want to measure your spindle exactly where the bearings ride as well as where the grease seal rides in order to ensure...
