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


Today we're going to take a look at the pre-greased trailer idler hub assembly for the 2,000-pound axles with the five on four-and-a-half inch bolt pattern. Now this idler hub is designed to be used on trailer idler axles. It is designed to fit the 2,000-pound trailer axles with the BTR spindles. So it's compatible with standard axles for most manufacturers, including Dexter, Lippert, and AL-KO.What's nice about this assembly is it is all pre-greased. It means the bearings are already packed with grease, and the grease seal in the back here is all installed ready to go. So this will allow you to easily install the hub right onto your axle.

No need to mess with packing the bearings with grease or installing the grease seal into the hub and getting grease all over the area. Now this does include the inner and outer bearings, pre-greased inside. The bearing races are installed. The grease seal I showed you in the back is all installed, comes with the grease cap, goes in the front here, and five-and-a-half-inch lug nuts.Now this is a sturdy iron construction, uses a zinc-enriched paint finish on it. It does meet the QAI and CSA certifications.

The wheel size that'll fit on this hub is a 8-inch diameter to 12-inch diameter wheel. The bolt pattern we'd mentioned is a five on four-and-a-half inch bolt pattern. And the diameter of the wheel studs is a half inch. Weight capacity on this assembly is 1,000 pounds, and that's 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 used in this, the inner and outer bearings, are the same part number, L44649. They have an inner diameter of 1.063 inches.

The grease seal that's used on this has the part number 10-9, has an inner diameter. You go ahead and pop that plug out so you can see the grease seal. It's an inner diameter of 1.5 inches, outer diameter of 1.987 inches. And again, you can see all your grease packed in there. And the same way if we pull the plug on the front, there's your bearing with all your grease packed in there.

So it's a nice feature to get these right out of the box and install them right onto your axle.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.
