Replacement Bearings for Dexter 6,000 Pound Axle


What capacity is this axle in the photo.


Expert Reply:

I reached out to Dexter and according to what they found that is a 6,000 lb axle. However, even with the serial number and plant number they are not 100% sure because of the age of the axle. I'm assuming you are looking for bearings since you looked at the # BK2-100. If Dexter is correct, you would want the # BK3-100 instead.

I recommend checking out your bearings just to be sure. The existing bearings may have the part numbers stamped in the side. If not, you will have to measure using a digital caliper like the # PTW80157. You can measure the inner diameter of the bearings or your spindle where the bearings ride. The # 25580 bearing has an inner diameter of 1.75" and the # 15123 bearing is 1.25".
