How to Grease a Dexter EZ Lube Axle


on your support expert answer - she said 1 14 oz tube will easily fill one axle -by axle does she mean both ends or just one side?

EZ Lube axles like the item # T3584F-EZ-8974 come from the factory with just a little bit of grease in the bearings. The first time you use the EZ Lube feature to fill the axle, it will take a lot of grease. You will probably use 3/4 to a full tube for each wheel. You will need the Performance Tools Heavy Duty Grease Gun - Lever Action - Aluminum item # PTW54290 to pump the grease into your axle. I have personally owned this grease gun for years and I have never had any issues or blow outs with it. For lubricant you'll want to use LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease - 14 oz. Cartridge item # L11390.

Here are the steps you will need to follow to properly lubricate your EZ Lube Axles:

1. Use wheel chocks on opposite side of trailer
2. Jack up a wheel enough that it can spin freely
3. Remove the cap covering the axle zerk fitting
4. Attach grease gun to zerk and start pumping grease while rotating wheel
5. Continue pumping grease until the new grease starts coming out the front
6. Remove grease gun, wipe away excess grease, and replace cap
7. Lower wheel and repeat for the other wheels
