etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums - Pre Greased Idler Hub - AKIHUB-5475-35-EZ-K Review


Jeff: Hello, everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this pre-greased trailer idler hub for 3,500 pound E-Z Lube axles. And this has the five on 4-3/4 inch bolt pattern. Now this trailer hub assembly is designed to fit E-Z Lube idler axles. This is a pre-greased hub, which is very easy to install.

There's no need to pack bearings with grease. It will come already greased with lithium complex multipurpose grease. And this whole hub will include the pre-greased inner bearing, which is part number L68149 with the bearing race. You also include the outer bearing part number L44649, also with the pre-installed bearing race.Will include the grease seal in the back already installed in the rear. That's part number 58846.

And if you notice it includes two different grease caps. This is the standard cap, but on an E-Z Lube axle, you'll want to use this E-Z Lube cap that pops in right there. And also comes with the five 1/2 inch by 20 size lug nuts. Now this hub assembly fits E-Z Lube trailer axles. And what an E-Z Lube axle is it has the grease zerk fitting on the end of the spindle that allows you to pump grease into the bearings without having to remove this whole complete hub assembly from the axle.That's why you'll want to use this E-Z Lube compatible grease cap, makes lubricating the bearings very fast and easy.

What you do is just pop out this rubber plug when this is installed, and you just pop that plug out and then you'll be able to see the zerk fitting, attach your grease gun in there, pump the grease in there. No need to have to disassemble the complete hub.Now this hub is a sturdy iron construction. They do use a zinc enriched paint on the drum, which adds durability. It is QAI and CSA certified. Specs on this, the application is for 3,500 pound E-Z Lube trailer axle with number 84 spindles.

And it is compatible with standard axles for most manufacturers, including Axletech, Dexter, Lippert, and AL-KO. The hub diameter, this end to this end is 6-1/4 inches. So it will fit wheel sizes of 13 inch to 15 inches. Bolt pattern we mentioned is a five on 4-3/4 inch bolt pattern. And the wheel studs are 1/2 inch diameter. So you use your 1/2 inch lug nuts to hold your wheel and tire assembly to the hub.But that should do it for the review on the pre-greased trailer idler hub for 3,500 pound E-Z Lube axles with the five on 4-3/4 inch bolt pattern..
