Review of Dexter Trailer Hubs and Drums 84546UC3-EZ


Today we're going to review part number 84546UC3-EZ. This is the Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly for 3,500 lb EZ lube axles with the 5 on 4 1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now this trailer hub and drum assembly is designed to fit on axles that have electric brakes. The drum would fit over the brake assembly on the axle. It does include everything showing here, the bearings, the races which are pre-installed in the hub, the grease seal, the grease cap and the lug nuts. Now this is designed for an EX lube axle, and what the EZ lube design is, it makes lubricating the bearings very simple. Basically, when this is slid over the hub and it's tightened down, and then you put the dust cap on basically what you can do is you can actually grease your bearings without having to remove the whole hub and drum assembly.

Basically you just remove this rubber plug that's in this center cap and you would have access to the zerk fitting. It would be on the end of the spindle of the axle and then you could put your grease kit on that and grease your bearings without having to disassemble the whole hub. Again, the application on this is most 3,500 lb EZ lube axles with electric breaks, it even includes the Dexter axles. The drum dimension; this is measured by the diameter, which would be 10 inches, this is the diameter, and then the width, which would be this measurement right here is 2 1/4 inches wide. I just want to show you that basically that measurement would also be, you can see 10 inches, and then just to drop it down and if we put the measurement on it this way you can see right at 2 1/4 inches wide. Basically, that would be the measurement also of the brake assembly that would be on your trailer axle.

So if you have brakes that are 10 in by 2 1/4, that's when it's meaning that this drum would fit over it. The bolt pattern again is 5, as you can see the 5 lugs, 4 1/2 in. The wheel studs they use are 1/2 in diameter. The weight capacity is 1,750 lbs. When you use this on one side, and another one on the other side, that would get you your 3,500 lb capacity. Now, the bearings that are included; the inner bearing right here, which would be L68149 that would go, and again the pre-installed race is right in there so that inner bearing would go right in like that.

Then with your bearing installed, you put your grease seal right in there, it's a double lipped grease seal. The outer bearing, which is part number L44649, that would just drop in again the pre-installed race that's already in the hub and drum. One everything is tightened down, you can put this included center cap. Again, this is a EZ lube center cap, I just want to show you how you can remove that. There's a rubber plug right in here, so if you just pull that rubber plug right out, and with it on there you can see that you'll have access to Zerk fitting, and when you're done greasing it, you put that plug back in to protect it. Then it also comes with the five 1/2 in lug nuts that are that are used to, when you're ready to put your wheels and tires on to your hub and drum.

Then you can just use these lug nuts to tighten it down. That should do it on the review on part number 84546UC3-EZ, it's the Dexter trailer hub and drum assembly for 3,500 lb EZ lube axles. .
