Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub with Integrated Drum - 8-219-18UC3 Review


Today, we're taking a look at a Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly for 7,000 pound E-Z Lube axles. This trailer hub and drum assembly provides surface area for your brake shoes to grip when the brake is activated. It is compatible with electric and hydraulic drum brakes.The E-Z Lube compatibility simply means that we have the included grease cap that has a rubber plug that can be removed for easy access to lubricate your bearings. All you gotta do is remove the rubber plug to access the zerk fitting on the spindle, so there's no need to disassemble the entire hub.It's made from a sturdy iron construction. You can see everything you get laid out here on the table. So you get the actual hub, you get your bearings, races, grease seal, grease cap, bolts, and the 90-degree cone nuts.

All that's included. The hub and drum are made in the USA. Again, it's designed for 7,000-pound E-Z Lube axles with number 42 spindles. Wheel size that this'll work on is 16" to 17 1/2".When it comes to the dimensions of the drum, this is a 12" diameter drum, measures 2" wide. That measurement is all taken internally here, so the 2" width measurement is this surface area right here.

And then the diameter measurement, again, it's 12", and that's taken inside edge to inside edge. It works with 12" electric and hydraulic drum assemblies. Bolt pattern on this unit is 8 on 6 1/2".Now when it comes to some of the specifications of the other included parts, the grease cap flange diameter is 2.72". Wheel bolt diameter is 5/8". The weight capacity for this individual unit is 3,500 pounds, so when it's paired with another one, that's where we get the 7,000 pound E-Z Lube axle application.

The bearings, again, are included, so you get your inner and outer bearings. You also get the races, which are already pre-installed, inner and outer. And then you get a grease seal, which is included as well.That's going to do it for today's look at the Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly for 7,000 pound E-Z Lube axles.
