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


Jeff: Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at the pre-greased trailer idler hub for 2000 pound EZ lube axles. And this has the five on four and a half inch bolt pattern. Now this trailer hub assembly is designed to fit EZ lube idler axles. And this is a pre-greased hub, which makes it very easy to install.

There's no need to pack the bearings with grease. It will come to you already greased with the lithium complex multipurpose grease. You can see the back has a plug in it that keeps the grease in, and also on the front, there's a plug here. So when you get them, you just pull out the plugs and install it on your axle. It will include the pre-greased inner and outer bearings.

They use the same part number on the inner and outer bearings on this one. It's part number L44643. The bearing races that the bearings ride in are all pre-installed also. And the installed grease seal here in the rear is included. It's part number 34823.The grease caps that come with it.

They offer a standard cap and then the EZ lube cap. Also the five half inch by 20 size lug nuts. Now this hub assembly will fit EZ lube trailer axles. And the EZ lube axles are the ones that have the grease circ fitting on the end of the spindle that allows you to grease the bearings without having to remove the complete hub assembly from the axle. You end up using this EZ lube compatible grease cap here that's installed on the outside.

It makes lubricating your bearings fast and easy. All you have to do to access to grease them, is just pop out this rubber plug that'll be in the cap there. And that'll give you access to that zerk fitting on the spindle. Put your grease gun on there. Pump the grease in there. And when you got enough in there, put your cap back on. You're all ready to go. You don't have to take apart your whole bearings in your hub to take it off and grease your bearings.This is a nice sturdy iron construction. It uses a zinc enriched paint on the hub to add durability. And it is QAI and CSA certified. Specs on this, again. Application is 2000 pound EZ lube trailer axles with the BT8 spindles. It is compatible with standard axles from most manufacturers, including Dexter, Lippert, and Alco. The hub diameter, which is measured from this end to this end, 6.25 inches. So we'll use, or fits 13 inch to 15 inch wheels. Bolt pattern on this again, is five on four and a half inch bolt pattern. Diameter of the wheel studs is a half inch. So these half inch lug nuts will go on there to hold your wheel in place. And the weight capacity on this hub is 1000 pounds. So when this is used with one on the other side, it'll meet your 2000 pound axle capacity. But that should do it for the review on the pre-greased trailer idler hub for 2000 pound EZ lube axles. And it has the five on four and a half inch bolt pattern.
