Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub - 8-259-50UC1-EZ Review


Hello, everybody, this is [email protected] Today we're going to take a look at this Dexter Gal Tex trailer idler hub assembly for 2200 pound easy lube axles with the five on four and a half inch bolt pattern. Now this is a Marine grade trailer hub assembly. It's designed to fit idler axles. It includes everything here on the table. Includes the hub assembly itself, both the inner and outer bearings, the bearing races, which are pre-installed in the hub, the grease seal, the grease cap, which is an EZ lube grease cap, and the zinc coated lug nuts.

Now the cap I mentioned is an EZ lube compatible grease cap, and basically what that does, it makes lubricating bearings fast and easy. It's designed to work on an EZ lube axle and EZ lube axle will have a grease cap fitting on the end of the spindle. And what this cap allows you to do is you pop out this rubber plug and that allows you to access that Zerk fitting, pump your grease in, no need to disassemble the hub.So it makes it a lot easier. Now this Gal Dex trailer hub assembly has a galvanized coating on it, helps resist corrosion, makes it ideal for use on your boat or snowmobile trailer. Gal Dex hubs undergo a test in which they're sprayed with a 5% salt solution to determine corrosion resistance over time.

These products are able to withstand 500 hours of constant exposure to the salt water mist. And this 500 hour salt spray rating will indicate that the products not only durable enough to last in freshwater environments, but it can also be used on trailers that come in contact with salt water. So again, the specs on this, the application is for 2200 pound easy lube trailer axle with the BTR spindles. Bolt pattern is a five on four and a half inch bolt pattern, hub flange diameter, which is the widest part of this, is going to be five and a half inches.So it is designed to accept wheel sizes from eight inch up to 12 inches. The wheel bolt dimensions are half inch diameter and you can see they are zinc finished.

And the weight capacity on this hub is 1100 pounds. So when this is used with one on the other side of the axle, it'll meet your 2200 pound axle rating. The bearings I mentioned that are included, they're the same number, both inner and outer bearing. They're part number L44649. The grease seal that's included is part number 10-9.

The EZ lube grease cap is part number DC200L-DCRP. And the lug nuts gives you five half inch by 20 size lug nuts. They're part number CE11051. But that should do it for the review on this Dexter gal Dex trailer idler hub assembly for 2200 pound easy lube axles with the five on four and a half inch bolt pattern.
