etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums - Hub with Integrated Drum - AKHD-655-6-EZ-K Review


Today, we're going to take a look at the 12-inch pre-greased trailer hub and drum assembly with the six on five-and-a-half inch bolt pattern for the 5,200-pound and 6,000 pound EZ Lube axles. Now this trailer hub and drum assembly provides the surface area for your brake shoes to grip when your brakes are activated. This is compatible with the electric and the hydraulic drum brakes.It includes the EZ Lube compatible grease cap right here, makes lubricating your bearings fast and easy. So when you install it, it has the rubber center cap that you can pop out or the plug, and that allows you with the cap still installed and the hubs also installed, you can access that grease zerk fitting that's on the end of the EZ Lube spindle.Now this is a sturdy iron construction, uses a zinc-enriched paint on the drum to add durability, has a zinc finish on the bolts to resist corrosion. And the nice thing about these hubs and drums, they are pre-greased. The pre-greased hub and drum assembly is very easy to install.

There's no need to pack any bearings with the grease. And also the grease seal in the back, you can see, is pre-installed. If I pop off protective cover, you can see your grease seals installed with the bearing ready to go. So you'll receive it all ready to just slide onto your spindle.Now they do use a lithium complex multipurpose grease to keep the bearings lubricated. This will include everything on the inside, the inner and outer bearings.

The bearing races are pre-installed. The grease seal, we showed you. The EZ Lube grease cap we mentioned, and even 12 of the half, or I'm sorry, 6 of the half-inch by 20 size lug nuts.This is QAI and CSA certified. Again, the application for this is 5,200 pound and 6,000 pound axles with the number 42 spindles. It is compatible with standard axles for most manufacturers, including Dexter, Lippert, and AL-KO.A few dimensions on this hub.

The diameter, which will be measured inside straight across, you can see is right at 12 inches. The width of it is right at 2-and-a-quarter inches wide. It is designed to work with 12-inch brake assemblies. Bolt pattern again, we mentioned is a six on five-and-a-half inch bolt pattern. Wheel stud diameter is a half an inch.

And the weight capacity on this hub and drum is 3,000 pounds. So when it is matched with one on the other side of the axle, it'll meet your 6,000-pound axle rating.The bearings we mentioned that are included, they are part number. The inner bearing is 25580, outer bearing is 15123, and the grease seal is GS2250DL.But that should do it for the review on this 12-inch pre-greased trailer hub and drum assembly with the six on five-and-a-half inch bolt pattern for 5,200 pound and 6,000 pound EZ Lube axles.
