Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums - EZ Lube Hub with Integrated Drum - 8-219-18UC3 Review


Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this 12 inch diameter Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly with the 8 on 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern and the 5/8 inch diameter wheel studs, and this is for a 7,000 pound E-Z Lube Axle. Now, this trailer hub and drum assembly here provides the surface area for your brake shoes to grip when the brake is activated, and it is compatible with both 12 inch electric and hydraulic drum brakes. This is a nice sturdy iron construction. The drum dimensions, which are measured inside to inside, is 12 inches diameter, width of it is two inches wide, and as we mention the application for this, it fits on a 7,000 pound E-Z Lube axle with the number 42 spindles. Now, the E-Z Lube axles, they have the grease zerk fitting that's on the end of the spindle, and it allows you to grease your bearings without having to remove this hub and drum.

This part here will include everything shown on the table. We just zoom in, so we can look at a better look at it. It'll include the hub and drum assembly, it includes both the inner and outer bearings, the bearing races are included, and they're actually pre-installed in the hub already, the grease seal is included, the E-Z Lube grease cap, the nut and the locking ring to hold it on into place, and then eight of the 5/8 inch by 18 cone nuts are also included, that'll hold your wheel to this hub and drum. Now, the E-Z Lube compatible grease cap is nice, because when you install this, makes lubricating your bearings fast and easy. We mentioned the zerk fitting's on the end of the spindle, what you end up doing is just popping off this middle rubber plug, you can access the zerk fitting with your grease gun, put it on there, pump to grease in, remove it, put the plug back in, so there's no need to disassemble the hub and drum to remove it.

The hub and drum is made in the USA. Few specs again, the wheel size this will hold is 16 inch up to 17 1/2 inches, bolt pattern we mentioned, 8 on 6 1/2 inches, wheel stud diameter is 5/8 of an inch diameter, so it accepts the 5/8 inch size lug nuts, and the weight capacity on this is 3,500 pounds, so when this is matched with one on the other side of the axle, it'll meet the 7,000 pound rating of your axle. But that should do it for the review on this 12 inch diameter Dexter Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly with the 8 on 6 1/2 inch bolt pattern and the 5/8 inch wheel studs for the 7,000 pound E-Z Lube axles..
