Thoroughly Tested for Safety

This hub-and-drum assembly meets the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. This assembly underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. This assembly has also been tested by QAI for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.

E-Z Lube-Compatible Assembly for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub-and-drum assembly is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube axle to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. Just remove the plug on the grease cap, attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of the spindle, and inject the grease. It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. Not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly.

Determining the Bolt Pattern

The first number in the bolt pattern is the number of bolt holes. The second number denotes the diameter, in inches, of the circle on which the bolt holes sit.

Bolt Pattern - Even

On wheels with an even number of bolt holes, measure from the center of one bolt hole to the center of the hole directly across from it. (Example: 8 on 6-1/2 means 8 bolt holes with 6-1/2" from the center of one hole to the center of another on the opposite side.)

Bolt Pattern - Odd

To determine the bolt-circle diameter on wheels with an odd number of bolt holes, measure from the center of any bolt hole to the point halfway between the two bolt holes directly across from the first. (Example: 5 on 4-1/2 means 5 bolt holes with 4-1/2" measured to a point halfway between the opposite bolt holes.)

Bolt Pattern - Side

Measuring the distance (D) from the center of one bolt hole on the wheel to the center of a bolt hole right next to it can also help to determine the bolt pattern.

  • If D = 2-5/8", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-1/2"
  • If D = 2-3/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 4-3/4"
  • If D = 3", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5"
  • If D = 3-1/4", then the bolt pattern is 5 on 5-1/2"

Video Transcript for etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub with Integrated Drum - AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K Review

Today we are going to take a look at the 10-inch galvanized trailer hub and drum assembly for 3500 pound EZ Lube axles, with the 5 on 4 and 1/2 inch bolt pattern. This hub and drum assembly will provide the surface area for your brake shoes to grip when the drum brake is activated. This is compatible with both electric and hydraulic drum brakes. This trailer hub assembly does fit the EZ Lube trailer axles and the EZ Lube axles are the the ones that will have the grease zirque fittings on the end of the spindle that allows you to grease the bearings without having to remove the complete hub and drum assembly to get at the bearings. It does include this EZ Lube compatible grease cap which will make lubricating your bearings very fast and easy. It would be attached like that and all you would have to do to access the EZ Lube fitting is pop out the rubber plug and then your zirque fitting would be right there on the end of the spindle. You can connect your grease gun to that and put grease in there and grease the bearings without having to remove the complete assembly from the axle. This hub and drum assembly will include everything shown here on the table. It also includes the bearing races which are pre-installed in the hub- you can see the outer bearing race right there, and if we spin it around there's your inner bearing race already installed.

It also comes with the inner bearing, the outer bearing, the grease seal, the EZ Lube grease cap with the rubber plug, and then five half inch lug nuts. This is a sturdy iron construction. If you noticed it does have a galvanized finish on the drum. This will give you excellent corrosion resistance. It is ideal for use on marine applications, like on a boat or personal watercraft trailer. Or you could even use it on a snowmobile trailer.

The bolts are also zinc finished to help resist corrosion. This assembly is certified by USSAE Standards and CSA, which are the Canada standards. The application on this is 3500 pound EZ Lube trailer axles with the number 84 spindles. It is compatible with axles from most manufacturers like Dexter, Lippert and Al-Ko. This is designed to work with 10 inch break assembly, the inside of this of this drum is 10 inches. The bolt pattern again is a 5 on 4 and 1/2 inch bolt pattern.

Weight capacity is 1,750 pounds per hub, so when you combine this with a hub and drum on the other side of the axle it will get you your maximum 3500 pound rating. These bearings and parts right here, we will go through them all just to let you know where they go. The inner bearing, which would be the larger of the two- it's part number L68149- has an inner diameter of 1.378 inches. That would go on the inner bearing race right here, drops right in there. Then your grease seal to hold it in place has an overall diameter of 2.565 and that would go right there. You tap that in to hold everything there.

The outer bearing, which is the smaller of the two- has a part number of L44649- inner diameter of 1.063, that would go right into the outer bearing race just like that. Then your zinc plated EZ Lube grease cap with the rubber plug gets tapped in right over just like that and again has your plug install in there that you can pop off to access that zirque fitting. For this video, I'm just demonstrating where these parts go on your hub and drum assembly just to give you and idea, but when you do first install these, you do want to make sure both bearings are packed with grease heavily so when you do install them it is all ready to go. Then you can maintain it through that EZ Lube zirque fitting on the end of the spindle. One thing we also include is the five 1/2 inch by 20 size lug nuts. Those are used to hold your tire wheel assembly to the hub and drum. So once you put your wheel up on these studs, just go ahead and put your lug nuts on there and just go ahead and torque them down to the correct specs for your application. That will do it for the review of the 10-inch galvanized hub and drum assembly for 3500 pound EZ Lube axles with the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern.

The drum works great on my tractor trailer! Very pleased with the quality of the equipment and price and promptness of delivery. Thank you! 620312

Great service, One of the major items was going to delay my order, etrailer caught it and emailed an alternate selection that matched exactly. I also noticed one of the adaptors was universal not vehicle specific, they easily canceled the order with no charge. I reordered and it was shipped the same day! Everything was well packed and undamaged on arrival, standard shipping in less than a week! 479281

Just what I was looking for. GALVANIZED DRUMS for my 4 place snowmobile trailer. Purchased the etrailer drums vs Dexter. Will see how they hold up to the WI,MI. Salts roads. Only wish someone made galvanized electric brake assemblies for the 3500 lb axles. SALT BAD I see galvanized 3500 lb torsion axles for my next purchase. 421228

Greg, with your current electric brake configuration, you have the option of purchasing brakes with e-coating, which fights rust and corrosion with a paint-like coating. But a downside to e-coating is that the paint can wear off or get chipped, allowing rust to start. If you would like to switch to hydraulic or disc brakes, there are many galvanized options available. For a great comparison of the choices available to you, see this link:

Made it through 1 season in Wisconsin and UP roads. Still look like new. Have not taken a drum off yet to see how the pads and inner parts look. That’s on the fall to do list. Thanks

I bought a home made trailer and Tim helped me figure out what axles were under the trailer and what products I would need to bring the trailer up to operational standards. He advised me to get the rust resistant hardware and fixtures. The break components are bolt on and pre assembled. A big help for a man my age (71). The easier the better for me. Bearings were in the drums so all I have to do is grease and install. All components are well made and coated with rust resistant material. Tim made the ordering process simple and painless. Cost is competitive and shipping is free over $xx.xx dollars. Who could ask for more. Very Happy customer. Steven 754933

I ordered new axle spindles, brakes, u-bolts and hubs from ETrailer at a cost savings of nearly 50% compared to what I would have been charged here on the Oregon Coast. In addition to my cost savings, Shipping on my (70 lb) order was free and it arrived within 5 days. Etrailer's Tech departments and I exchanged several emails and photos concerning a boat trailer spring issue I was having, they were able to not only solved my problem, but they also saved me from the additional cost of buying new springs. I highly recommending this company for whatever trailer items you may need and do call them if you have any questions or issues with your trailer. 244098

  • Suspension and Trailer Tire/Wheel Combo Recommendation for Boat Trailer with 3.5K Axle
    I do have just about everything you are needing. The only thing that we don't currently carry is a galvanized axle rated for 3,500 lbs. If you check with a local trailer garage/store they should be able to help you order one that has a galvanized finish that also have the correct hub-face and spring-center measurements for your application. A 3,500 lb axle should use inner bearing L68149, outer bearing L44649, and a grease seal that has an inner diameter of 1.719" and an outer diameter...

  • Grease Seal for 3,500 Lb Axle With 2.325 Inch Outer Diameter
    I do have an option for you but it sounds like you have a very odd grease seal as the grease seal most commonly used with the L68149 and L44649 bearings is a 58846 which measures 1.719" inner diameter x 2.565" outer diameter. Unfortunately, we do not have any grease seals with a 1.719" inner diameter x 2.325" outer diameter so your best option is a new hub, the Trailer Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-545-35-G-K or part # AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K.

  • How To Determine If Boat Trailer has 10 Inch or 12 Inch Brake Assemblies
    When determining if you need 10 inch or 12 inch brake assemblies there are a couple of easy things to check to confirm the fit for your trailer. The first thing is you can measure the diameter of your hub. The second thing is you can look at the brake flange, if it has 4 bolts then it is 10 inch if it has 5 then it is 12 inch. Because you know you have a #84 spindle we can be confident that you have a 3,500 lb axle and you will need the 10 inch assemblies. I recommend the Hydraulic...

  • Replacement Timbren Axle-Less System and Hydraulic Brake Assembly for 3,500 lb Axles on Boat Trailer
    I would love to help you upgrade your suspension components! I am guessing that you have 3,500 lb axles on your trailer but if you could verify that it would help me to make sure that I recommend the correct parts for you. Also, are you looking to add brakes to both axles or just keep them on one pair? You would get more braking power and less wear with brakes on all of the axles but if you only want them on one then that will also play into the parts.

  • Self-Adjusting Trailer Brake Assemblies for Timbren Axle-Less Suspension ASR2000S02
    The recommended hub/drum for use with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension Kit # ASR2000S02 is either the powder-coat version # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K or the galvanized version # AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K, both of which are the 10-inch size. You are correct that these hubs require 10-inch brakes and that often a 2K axle uses smaller brakes in the 7 x 1-1/4-inch drum size. With either of these hub/drums you can use our cost-effective etrailer self-adjusting brakes, left-hand # AKEBRK-35L-SA and...

  • Replacement Hub and Drums and Brakes for EZ Loader Boat Trailer
    If you are going to replace the axles and hubs then our hubs will come with the proper bearings. But in order to determine the correct bearings you would either need to replace the axles first and then tell me which axles you have so I can find hubs to match or if the axles are exactly the same as the old axles you could tell me the inner and outer bearing numbers stamped into the sides of the bearings. I checked the EZ loader site and did not see replacement axles as an option so I...

  • How to Determine Correct Timbren Axle-Less Suspension for Boat Trailer
    In order to determine the correct capacity of the Timbren Axle-Less Suspension you need for your dual axle boat trailer you just need to know the GVWR of your trailer or the capacity of your current axles to get the appropriate system. For example, based on the numbers you gave it seems likely you have a pair of 3,500 axles so you will replace those with 3,500 lb rated axle-less suspension systems. For that you can use the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Straight Spindle...

  • Converting Hydraulic Drum Brakes to Electric Brakes on Tandem 3,500 Lb Axle Boat Trailer
    Yes, plenty of people choose to use electric brakes on their boat trailer because of the lower maintenance and cost as compared to hydraulic brakes. To replace your current hydraulic brakes I recommend our Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-35-SA. This includes both the right hand and left hand brake assemblies, mounting bolts and adjuster plugs. If you are unable to reuse your old nuts and lock washers, those are sold separately as part # BRKH10B. Since you were checking out hub...

    You have a number 84 spindle which we have a hub for. What you would want then is the part # AKIHUB-545-35-G-EZ-K which fits this spindle and is galvanized to help fight saltwater corrosion. This is an idler hub. If instead you need a hub/drum you would need the part # AKHD-545-35-G-EZ-K.
