CE Smith Trailer Hubs and Drums - Idler Hub - CE13515 Review

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at Today, we're gonna take a look at this CE Smith pre-greased galvanized trailer idler hub assembly with the case, for 3500 lb axles with the five on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now, this is a marine-grade trailer hub assembly. It'll fit idler axles. It includes the inner and outer barrings, the barring races, the greased seal is installed. Also comes with the greased cap, the lug nuts and the cotter pin.

And this is a pre-greased idler hub, which makes it very easy to install, there's no need to have to pack the barrings before you install this. This one's ready to slide right onto the spindle. It is lubricated with heavy duty grease for marine applications. It is a sturdy iron construction. Has a night galvanized finish to it, which will offer excellent corrosion resistance, so it is ideal for you use on a boat or a snowmobile trailer.

Also what's nice is you can see in the back here, it comes with this greased circ fitting on the hub, and that's to attach your grease gun to apply more grease as needed. On the lug nuts, on the greased cap, and on the cotter pin, they are a zinc plating which will also help to limit corrosion. Also, if you notice, comes with this nice hard carrying case with a handle, and that'll keep all the parts together in one place, so it makes it easy to stow this on your trailer in case of emergency and you need to replace the idler hub. Few specs on this, the application is for 3500 lb axles, with the number 84 spindles. The wheel size that'll fit on this hub is 13 inch to 15 inch wheels.

Bolt pattern we mentioned is five on 4 1/2 inches. The wheel studs size is a half inch diameter. And the lug nuts that fit on those are the half inch by 20 size lug nuts. The hub flange diameter, which is the diameter of this hub right here, is 6 1/2 inches. And the weight capacity on this is 1,750 lbs, so when this is used with one on the other side of the axle, it'll meet the 3500 axle capacity.

But again, just to show you the nice case here, pop it up, you can see it's made to carry the hub, and the parts together in one area. And once you close it, just snap it shut, and you're all ready to go. But that should do it for the review on the CE Smith pre-greased galvanized trailer idler hub assembly with the case, for 3500 axles..
