Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub And Drum for Heavy-Duty 15K Axles - DX78QR Review


Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at this Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly. This is a beefy trailer hub and drum. Weighs in about 130 pounds. So it is going to be very, very sturdy. It's got this iron construction, so it will hold up really well for you.

It's got a max weight capacity of 7,500 pounds, and of course you'll have one on each side. So it is going to work for your 15,000 pound heavy-duty axles. This will provide approximately 5 1/2 inches of surface area for your brake shoes to grip when your brake is activated. This will work with your hydraulic drum brakes, as well as your electric drum brakes. The braces are installed already as well as your 3 1/2 inch-- sorry, 3 1/4 inch long by 5/8 inch diameter wheel studs.

The bolt pattern for these studs is 8 on 275 millimeters. This hub is going to be compatible with the oil bath lubrication system, as you can see with the threads there. So it's going to allow you to easily check your lubrication level without having to disassemble the hub. Just look through the clear cap to check your oil levels. Now, this does not include the oil cap, any of the oil seals, the bearings or lug nuts.

Those are all sold separately. You can find them here at etrailer.com. This is just the hub and drum. Both are made here in the USA, so you can trust they're made to the high quality standards that we've come to know and trust the products that are made here in the U.S. So if you are looking for a hub and drum assembly for your 15,000 pound heavy duty axles, this is going to be what you need.

So that's going to complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
