etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub - AKIHUB-440-2-2K Review


Today we're going to take a look at the pre-greased trailer idler hub assembly for a 2000-lb axle with a 4 on 4" bolt pattern. Now this trailer hub assembly will fit on a 2000-lb idler axle with the BTR spindles. And what's nice about this one, it's a pre-greased idler hub assembly, which makes it very easy to install. No need to pack any bearings and already comes with the bearings packed with grease. And they're lubricated with a heavy duty grease for marine applications. It does include both the inner and outer bearings, pre-greased.

The bearing races and the grease seal. You can see if I pop the plug right there, there's your seal already installed also. They do come with these covers to keep the grease in place. Also comes with the four 1/2" by 20 size lug nuts, the two grease caps, and they give you two grease caps because you can use it on either a standard axle with the close center cap or an easy lube axle that has the easy lube center cap with the rubber center plug.The Seidler hub is a sturdy iron construction. Uses a zinc enriched paint on the hub to have durability and it does meet the QAI and CSA certifications.

Again, the application for this is 2000-lb axle with the BTR spindles and this is compatible with standard and easy lube axles from most manufacturers including Dexter, Lippert and Elkco. The bolt pattern on this is a 4 on 4" bolt pattern. Wheel stud size is a 1/2" diameter. The grease cap flange diameter is 1.99" and the weight capacity on this idler hub is 1000-lbs, so want to choose with one on the other side, it'll meet your 2000-lb axle capacity.Now the bearings that are pre-installed with this included the inner bearing, which is part number L44649. Has a 1.063 inner diameter and the outer bearing which is the same L44649 with the 1.063 inner diameter.

It includes the grease seal part number 10-9. That grease seal has an inner diameter of 1.5" and an outer diameter of 1.99".But that should do it for the review on the pre-greased trailer idler hub assembly for 2000-lb axles with the 4 on 4" inch bolt pattern.
