Recommended Tools for Repacking Trailer Bearings


First timer doing my own bearings job. What tools do I need to purchase to best work with my ordered kit from etrailer ? Thank you


Expert Reply:

The typical tools for repacking bearings are a seal puller, bearing packer, and grease gun. I recommend the following:

-Seal Puller # PTW1219

-LubriMatic Deluxe Bearing Packer # L70025


-Powerbuilt Deluxe Bearing Packer # ALL647646

-Powerbuilt Pistol Grip Grease Gun - Heavy Duty - 4,500 psi # ALL940798

If you need grease I recommend the LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease # L11390. This is a lithium complex so you will need to make sure that the new grease is compatible with the old grease or remove the old grease completely. If they are incompatible they can break each other down. See the table below.

I have attached a helpful article on packing bearings along with some helpful videos showing what the process is like.
