etrailer by AxleTek Trailer Axles - 2,200 LB Trailer Axle with Idler Hubs - e94YR Review


Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this trailer axle beam with the idler hubs and easy grease spindles. This is gonna be a great option for those of you who are needing to replace an axle on your trailer, or whether it's a small kayak trailer or something similar, this is going to do a great job for you. It's also gonna work if you're building your own trailer, you want it to have more of a custom suspension system, this will do a great job for that as well. But of course, there are lots of different options for axles, different weight capacities, different lengths, so you wanna make sure that you're getting the right one for you. This is a 1 3/4 quarter inch diameter round steel axle beam.

The total weight capacity is going to be 2,200 pounds, so make sure that that's going to work for your trailer's weight capacity, and then of course, you're gonna wanna know the length. So there's two very important ways to measure the length, the first is gonna be from your spring seats here, so from the center of one spring seat to the center of the other spring seat, it's gonna be right at 48 inches. The other way of measuring is gonna be from your hub face, so from the outside flat edge of one a hub to the outside flat edge of the other, it's gonna be right at 60 inches. So again, make sure that that's gonna work for your trailer and your setup. So you can see, this does have a little bit of a bend to it, and that's gonna be our camber, so as our trailer is under load, our tires are gonna have a nice even road to tread contact, so you're not gonna have to worry about uneven tire wear, that sort of thing, that's gonna give you plenty of grip for straight line acceleration and that sort of thing even when you're under load.

Our spindles are a easy grease spindle, they are welded in place using a patented welding process that's going to allow the spindle to slide over top of the axle rather than just bumping up against it and getting it welded in place, so that's actually gonna produce about a 40% stronger connection, it's gonna help prevent spindle failure, it's also gonna make sure that everything is aligned a lot better than the other method of attaching the spindle to the axle. You can see, this is welded in a straight alignment, there's no drop to it at all, and that built-in grease zerk there is the easy grease functionality, so we'll have a cap with a plug on it, you can just use a flat head screwdriver or something like that to pry it open, and that plug, that will give you access to that grease zerk, so you can just easily connect your grease gun, give it a few squirts, and that will pump the grease into that cavity, make sure that everything is well lubricated. That's not going to replace your normal maintenance of packing your bearings and that sort of thing, you will still need to do that, but this is just gonna be kind of in between that normal maintenance, making sure that everything is well lubricated in there. Our idler hubs are a cast iron construction, so they are gonna be extremely sturdy and durable for you. The hub bolt pattern there, you're gonna have 5 on 4 1/2 inches, so this is gonna work for your wheels that are 8 to 12 inches.

Everything that you're gonna need, the bearings, races, seals, and lug nuts are all included here. Very easy to get assembled, you're not gonna need to pack the bearings, because they do come pre-greased, so that first time when you're putting it all together, you won't have to deal with that mess and hassle, just get it all installed, pump some extra grease in there, and you'll be ready to go. Our spring seats are welded onto the frame onto the axle on the underside, that's going to allow us to mount our leaf springs in the underslung orientation, that's gonna create a lower ride height, so it's gonna be easier for us to load and unload our trailer, so lots of great options here or great features. This is CSA, QAI, and SAE-N certified, so you can trust that it meets those quality standards, it's gonna do a good job for you. It also comes with a limited lifetime warranty, so if you we're to have any problems with it, you're more than welcome to reach out to us here at etrailer.com, we're always happy to work with our customers to make sure that you're getting good quality products and having a good experience.

So again, make sure that this is gonna work for your weight capacity and length needs, if it does, I think you'll be very happy with it, I think it's gonna do a good job for you. So that's gonna complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..
