E-Z Lube and Easy Grease-Compatible Hub for Simple Lubrication

The grease cap on this hub is specially designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube or etrailer Easy Grease 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"

Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2K Axles - 4 on 4 - Galvanized - AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (48 Customer Reviews)

Marine-grade hub is designed for trailer idler axles. Fits 2K Dexter E-Z Lube and etrailer Easy Grease axles with BT8 spindles. Inner bearing (L44643) and race, outer bearing (L44643) and race, grease seal, grease cap, and nuts included.

Bought the 'Easy Grease trailer idler hubs' to put on a log splitter; previous set up had the wheel bearing as part of the rim requiring full disassembly if there was any problem with the tire. New hubs went on with zero issues - etrailer made it easy to find the correct size bearings to complete the build.
Bearings/hubs/tires work great! Have had it for a year now, taken it on the highway, in the field - no issues at all. If I do have any tire issues it will be much easier to pull the rim and fix, vice messing with a greasy bearing.



by:

The rep. I worked with, Sheryl H, was very helpful, and I received the products a day before I expected them. She gets a 5/5.
As far as the products go, one of the hubs looked a little dirty, and I wondered if it was used or returned previously.
More importantly, one of the bearings had a dent on the outer metal ring. Not sure if I can even use that one without having some future problem. I uploaded a photo.



by:

Probably the best service experience I have ever had. From the beginning phone call when was an American speaking clearly and had knowledge of the product and did great follow up and arrived right on schedule and the constant updates of delivery were awesome. Keep up the great work. Oh, also the parts fit perfectly the first time, I was actually surprised and very very pleased. THANK YOU. DO NOT HESITATE FOR ONE MOMENT TO BUY FROM THESE FOLKS.

@James We're glad to hear they're working well for you so far!


by:

Comparatively priced! Heavy axle hubs exactly as ordered. They were for a special homemade application for which I needed to machine them. I was happy to find the cast iron had an even consistency and also found they were hardened where needed. Here they are buried in the front end of this homemade mini-loader. They're hard to see,but were a great fit delivered in a timely fashion.



by:

Hub and all parts were there as described on the add accept the seal had been damaged in shipping. Upon delivery etrailer Was already asking me if the order was ok . So then I returned email to them with a photo of the damaged seal and they promptly popped one out to me in the post and in just a couple of days the hub was together and ready for use . Great customer service and products.



by:

The easy grease feature is a non worker. You can put in grease but it will just stay there. It will not re-grease the bearings. Nothing to push the grease. Kind of misleading the product.

This hub comes with an EZ lube dust cap and is meant to be used with an EZ spindle that would have a grease zerk fitting on the end of it to add grease to. Does your hub have an EZ spindle? If not, then you would want to use a standard grease cap part # RG04-020. Or you also use Bearing Buddies like part # BB1980A that would have a grease zerk fitting built into it. Both of these would have an outer diameter of 1.98 inches to match the hub bore.

Fit perfect

Good replacement for my utility trailer. Bolted right up. Good value.

No issues at all, fitment was spot on and they’ve held up.

Great service and product! Items shipped next day and the order tracking is way better than most trailer part sites. Items packed well in box is a big plus as receiving damaged parts can kill a weekend project plans. I will order all my related parts from etrailer.

Fit perfect and arrived early.

Everything has held up fine over the past year. Had a 1,200 mile and 400 mile round trips and at least 20 short hails to the local ramp.

Year two and everything is operating like day one!



by:

I bought these for my boat trailer where one of it's hubs had a seized bearing. The ordering the etrailer folks helped me to get what I needed and when one of the hub caps came dented out of the box they sent me another one. I only used the trailer once since then but smooth sailing.



by:

etrailer made researching and ordering the correct hubs easily. One stop shop. I am glad I found a complete kit that included the bearings and seals, and having the races already seated inside each hub was a big help.



by:

Solid, easy to assemble, will work great on my log arch



by:

I have delt with e-trailer 3 times and they have always delivered as I ordered and quite timely.



by:

I am a returning customer who looks for quality products at a good value, and eTrailer does it again. And I paid for three day shipping, and my order was here by noon on the second day. Good folks, and a good business to work with.

  • Correct Replacement Idler Hub for Trailer with L44643 Bearings and 4 Bolt Pattern
    The correct idler hub assembly you're looking for is the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly part # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K. This is a complete unit with bearings, races, and seals. They are made of steel with a galvanized finish. I am not aware of any such aluminum idler hub.

  • What is the Diameter of the Center Part of Trailer Hub AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K
    I went out to the warehouse to measure hub # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K for you. At the widest part the part of the hub where the wheel fits around is 2-1/2 inches. Your wheels will fit because on a lug-centric set up (wheel centers to hub using lug nuts) the wheel center pilot hole does not have to be exact.

  • Could Trailer Hub # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K Fit Spindle that Measures 1 inch In Diameter
    Where are you measuring the 3-3/4 inches from? Just the portion that is 1 inch? With or without the threads? If the measurement of the spindle where it's 1 inch in diameter is 3-3/4 inches without the threads being factored in yes, the hub part # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K would fit on it. If the 3-3/4 inch measured includes more of the spindle than that then you'd have a stub style spindle which we won't have anything for since it's much shorter in length than standard spindles.

  • Does Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Have Grease Zerk On Hub
    The Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2K Axles # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K does not have a grease zerk on the hub itself. This is designed to work with Easy Grease or E-Z Lube axles which have a grease zerk on the end of the spindle. You can add a grease zerk to the hub if you would like but we do not recommend it. Doing so would void the warranty and may compromise the structural integrity of the hub.

  • Replacement Galvanized 4 on 4 Hub with 1.249 ID Grease Seal
    It sounds like you might be looking for the # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K which uses a grease seal with a 1.249" ID. However, you will want to confirm that the bearings match as well. The AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K uses the inner and outer bearing # L44643 which is a 1" inner diameter bearing. As long as those also match, this will be the correct hub you're looking for and is compatible with EZ lube axles like yours. If you find a different bearing in the hubs, just let me know what you've got and...

  • How To Find Correct Replacement Hubs/Bearings for EZ Loader EZLBW90B Trailer
    I don't have a way to look up exact parts for a specific trailer but based on some research online it looks like the trailer might have a weight carrying capacity of 2,350 lbs and in which case you likely have either a 2,000 lb or 2,200 lb axle. That said, I don't know if it uses L44643 (1") or L44649 (1.063") bearing nor do I know the lug pattern so you'll need to count the lug pattern and pull the hubs on the existing trailer to determine these last bits of info.

  • Depth Measurement For Hubs That Fit A 1" Straight Spindle
    We do have hubs available for a 1" straight spindle in part # AKIHUB-440-2-EZ-1K. This hub measures 4-1/4" deep so it will run a bit longer than the hub you are looking for. There are a total of 4 hubs that we carry for a 1" straight spindle and all 4 would be identical as far as depth. A lot of these older boat trailers use hubs that are trailer specific, and it may prove very difficult to find. We do carry replacement spindles like part # TRU59FR, if you want to change it out for a more...

  • Replacement Boat Trailer Hubs with Bearing Kit and Matching Wheels and Tires
    It sounds like you have a standard 1 inch straight spindle. Because it is for a boat trailer, I recommend replacing your hubs and bearings with a galvanized hub to reduce corrosion. My recommendation is the # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K for a 4 on 4 inch bolt pattern. The # AKIHUB-545-2-G-EZ-1K is the fit for the 5 on 4-1/2 Inch bolt pattern. I've linked the pages to the wheel and tire combinations that will work well with this bolt pattern. You will want to find the closest size to what...

    You will need to measure your spindle with a Digital Caliper # PTW80157 to find the bearing and grease seal sizes(see image).

    There are 3 possible hubs for your trailer. To determine the correct hub you will need to remove one of the hubs it check for the correct bearing/spindle size. If you can read the numbers on the bearing you are looking for L44643 or L44649.

  • Replacement Hub for Spindle With 1" Inner Diameter Bearings
    The # AKIHUB-545-2-G-2K uses # L44649 bearings with an inner diameter of 1.063" and also has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. Since you need # L44643 bearings with an ID of 1" and a 4 on 4 bolt pattern the correct part would be the Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2,000-lb Axles - 4 on 4 - Galvanized # AKIHUB-440-2-G-1K. If you have an easy grease/EZ Lube axle then you would need the Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2K Axles - 4 on 4 - Galvanized # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K instead.

  • Replacement Hub Assembly for Older Boat Trailer with 4 Bolt Pattern
    The standard hub for a 10" wheel and 4 on 4" lug pattern is going to either have # L44643 bearings and a 1" diameter spindle, or an # L44649 bearing and a 1.063" spindle. Once you've determined which one you have then you'll need to choose from the following: - L44643 Bearings # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K - L44649 Bearings # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-2K Please note that these hubs are 4-1/2" deep so if your hubs are shorter than this it means you have an old enough style axle that you need to replace...

  • What Spindle Should be Used with Trailer Hub # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K
    The trailer hub part # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K that you referenced is designed to fit BT8 spindles like the part # TRU94FR. This spindle is designed for 2,000 lb axles so it would easily work on a 1,000 lb total trailer.

    Thanks for the pictures! If your spindle is 3-3/4" with the threads included then the Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly item # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K will not fit. This would be why you couldn't get the castle nut to thread.

  • Trailer Hubs and Bearing Buddies for Trailer Spindles with 1 Inch Diameter
    It sounds like your spindle uses L44643 bearings, There are a lot of hubs that use those bearings and have a 4 on 4 bolt pattern such as # AKIHUB-440-2-1K. However, the 1968 Bearing Buddies are designed to fit a hub that uses outer bearing M-12649 or 07100 which are not common. The hubs that fit your spindle take the 1.98 Bearing Buddies such as # BB1980A-SS or # BB1980A.

    Both the # AKIHUB-440-2-2K and the # 8-258BTUC1 have a the same 4-1/4" length. This shouldn't be a problem, but you will need to know which bearings you have right now since these are different. They also have different bolt patterns so you will need to choose the right bolt pattern. The # AKIHUB-440-2-2K is designed to fit a BTR spindle and uses # L44649 inner and outer bearings. It has a 4 on 4 bolt pattern. The # 8-258BTUC1 is for a BT8 spindle which uses # L44643 inner and outer bearings...

  • How to Grease Bearings on Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly
    Both options you mentioned will work and are acceptable. You can either repack and inspect them manually or add a bearing buddy like # BB1980A-SS to the # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K. The bearing buddies have a blue indicator ring that sits flush with the top of the cylinder when full so you just need to monitor that to keep them properly greased.

    For a 4 on 4 hub that fits a 1" diameter spindle, I recommend the Easy Grease Trailer Idler Hub Assembly for 2K Axles item # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K. This kit works with both inner and outer bearing item # L44643. You will need one per axle. Each kit includes bearings, grease seal, grease cap, and four lug nuts. I have linked an installation video below. I recommend using LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease item # L11390 to repack your bearings. You will want to grab one tube per axle.

  • Recommended Replacement Spindle Or Axle For Older Spindle That Uses Short Hubs W/ L44643 Bearings
    I have a few different options for you, but the older short hubs that your trailers spindles use are not made any longer so I do not have a hub only option for you. Instead you will either need to replace the spindle with a newer one such as the # TRU97FR which works with idler hubs # AKIHUB-440-2-G-EZ-1K which have the 4 on 4" bolt pattern you are needing, or replace the entire axle.
