Review of etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums AKHD-545-2-2K



These hubs come pre-greased, and since mixing different greases causes problems then we either need to know exactly what grease is in here or we have to waste a bunch of time (not to mention the wasted extra cost) to clean out all of the existing grease and then put in our own, known, grease. Yet, nowhere on the product page nor in this video are we told what grease was used for pre-greasing these. Does anyone know definitively - zero speculation, no SWAG'ing - exactly what grease product is used to pre-grease these hubs?

There is no 100% answer to your question I'm afraid Brent. The manufacturer will use whatever grease is available to them at the time. However the point of the pre-greased item is to not have to add any. You can install the hub and you're good to go until the next maintenance is due. And you'll have to clean it out to add new grease anyway so at that point you can just put your preferred grease in and be good to go. The only thing I can think of would be to call the manufacturer(Axle Tek) and ask them what they used. You would probably need the serial number and such. But other than that we have no way of telling what specific grease was used.
