etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums - Pre Greased Idler Hub - AKIHUB-550-35-EZ-K Review


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 easy lube axles. And it has a five on five inch bolt pattern. Now this trailer hub assembly is designed to fit easy lube idler axles. It has a pre-greased hub, which means it's very easy to install, there's no need to have to pack the bearing separately with grease.

Comes already greased with lithium complex multipurpose grease. It will include the pre-greased inner bearing, which is part number L68149, and the bearing race that it runs on. Also the outer bearing part number L44649, and again, the bearing racer, all pre-installed. It will also include the installed grease seal at the rear here. Part number 58846.

And if you notice, I laid out and also comes with two different grease caps, a standard cap, and the easy lube cap.The easy lube cap is what you'll want to use on this application. And it also has five half inch by 20 size lug nuts. Now this hub assembly will fit easy lube trailer axles and an easy lube axle has the grease zerk fitting on the end of the spindle and allows you to grease the bearings without having to remove the whole complete hub assembly from your axle. That's why we mentioned you want to use this easy lube compatible grease cap makes lubricating the bearings very fast and easy. All you end up doing is when this is installed on the hub, you just pop out this rubber plug right here, and that'll give you access to that zerk fitting, you can just run your grease gun in there, hook it to the zerk fitting, pump the grease in, don't have to mess with removing the hub.

And then when you're done, just go ahead and put your rubber plug back in there and you're all ready to go.Now, this is a sturdy iron construction, has a zinc enriched paint for durability. It is QAI and CSA certified. Specs again, this fits 3,500 pound, easy lube trailer axles with number 84 spindles. It is compatible with standard axles from most manufacturers, including Axle Tech, Dexter Lippard and OutCo. Hub diameter on this is six and a quarter inches.

So it will fit 13 inch to 15 inch wheels. Bolt pattern we mentioned, is five on five inches, and the wheel stud diameter is a half an inch. So you can use your half inch lug nuts to hold your tire and wheel assembly to your hub, but that should do it for the review on this pre-greased trailer idler hub for 3,500 pound easy lube axles with the five on five inch bolt pattern..
