Dexter Axle Trailer Hubs and Drums - Trailer Hub And Drum Assembly 6K Axle - K08-201-9B Review


Hi everybody. Andy here with etrailer.com. And today, we're gonna take a look at this Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly. Now, this 12 inch diameter by two inch wide hub and drum assembly has, as you can see here, a six on 5 1/2 inch bolt pattern that is designed to fit 6,000 pound E-Z Lube trailer axles with a number 11 or number 12 spindle. The grease cap on this hub and drum assembly is specifically designed to work with your Dexter E-Z Lube axle to make lubricating bearings quick and easy. You would just simply remove the plug on this grease cap and attach a grease gun to the zerk fitting on the end of your spindle and inject the grease.

It will flow easily to both inner and outer bearings. And not only does this make lubricating the bearings easy, but it also helps to prevent the corrosion of the hub. This is because you can lubricate the bearings without the mess of taking apart the entire assembly. Now, this is compatible with electric or hydraulic drum brakes. And this hub and drum is made in the USA of a sturdy iron construction.

The bearings, and the races, and the grease seal, and the grease cap, and the wheel studs, and lug nuts are included, along with the instructions that you see here. Now, the wheel stud diameter is gonna be half an inch and you're gonna get six cone nuts. And then the inner bearing, as you can see here, the number is etched in this location here on the bearing, right here. It's probably hard for you to see from that distance. But typically, when you are looking to replace bearings, you'll wanna check the bearing that you currently have that you wanna replace to find the number that would be etched somewhere on that bearing.

And for our purposes here, the inner bearing is 25580. And so, that is gonna fit right into our hub here as the inner bearing. And then the outer bearing is the number that is etched here is 15123. And, of course, that is also included with this hub and drum. And the races are preinstalled on this assembly.

So, I'm just trying to show that to you here. And then you're going to get one grease seal. And the inner diameter is gonna be 2.250 inches and the outer diameter is going to be 3.376 inches. You're also gonna get one spindle nut, one spindle nut retainer. And again, we talked about that grease cap with that E-Z Lube rubber plug. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..
