etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub - AKIHUB-545-2-1K Review


Today, we're going to take a look at the pre-greased trailer idler hub assembly for 2,000-pound axles with the five on four-and-a-half inch bolt pattern. Now this idler hub's designed for use on the trailer idler axles. It is designed to fit the 2,000-pound trailer axles that have the BT8 spindles. So it is compatible with standard axles for most manufacturers, including Dexter, Lippert, and AL-KO.Now what's nice about this is this assembly is all pre-greased. It means the bearings on the inside are already packed with grease. And the grease seal right here on the back, I popped it off, you can see is already installed also.

So this will allow you to install the hub right onto your axle. No need to mess around with packing the bearings with grease, installing the grease seal, and getting grease everywhere.This does include the inner and outer bearings. The bearing races are installed. The grease seal we mentioned comes with the grease cap and the five half-inch lug nuts are all included. This hub has a sturdy iron construction.

It does use a zinc enriched paint finish on it. And it is QAI and CSA-certified.Specs on the sub assembly, the wheel size that'll fit on this is 8-inch up to 12-inch wheels. The bolt pattern we mentioned is a five on four-and-a-half inch bolt pattern. The wheel stud dimensions is half an inch. Weight capacity is 1,000 pounds per hub assembly, so when this is used with one on the other side, it'll meet your 2,000-pound axle rating.The bearings that are included with this are the inner and outer bearing, are the same part number, L44643.

They have a one-inch inner diameter. And the grease seal that's installed is 34823. That has an inner diameter of 1.249 inches and an outer diameter of 1.983 inches. You can see there's your seal, your bearing's in there, all greased. And if we pop the front plug off, you can see there's your grease all on your outer bearing.But that should do it for the review on the pre-greased trailer idler hub assembly for 2,000-pound axles with the five on four-and-a-half inch bolt pattern..
