etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums - Pre Greased Hub - AKIHUB-545-2-LFEZ-2K Review


Jeff: Hello everybody. This is Jeff etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this pre-greased trailer idler hub for 2000 pound EZ Lube axles. Has the five on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. Now this trailer hub assembly will fit the EZ Lube Idler axles. It is a pre-greased hub.

It's very easy to install. There's no need to pack the bearings with the grease, it'll come already greased with lithium complex multipurpose grease.It does include both the pre-greased inner and outer bearings, and they use the same bearing part number on the inner and the outer. It's part number L44649. Does come with the bearing races already installed, that the bearings will ride in. Also, the grease seal is installed in the rear, it's part number 10-9.

And it does come with the grease caps here. Comes with a standard grease cap, and then the EZ Lube cap. Also, the five half inch by 20 size lug nuts.Now this hub assembly will fit the EZ Lube trailer axles. And the EZ Lube trailer axles are the ones that have the grease zerk fitting on the end of the spindle and allows you to grease the bearings without having to remove the whole complete hub assembly from your axle. You can do that by using this EZ Lube compatible grease cap.

Once that's installed on there, it makes lubricating the bearings very fast and easy. All you have to do is pop out this rubber plug, and that'll give you access to that zerk fitting, put your grease gun in there, pump the grease in there, and you're all ready to go. No need to disassemble the hub off the axle.This is a nice sturdy iron construction. They do use a zinc enriched paint on this hub to add durability and it is QAI and CSA certified. A few specs again, this fits the 2000 pound EZ Lube trailer axles with the BTR spindles.

It is compatible with standard axles from most manufacturers, including Dexter, Lippert, and Alco. Now the hub diameter, which is the diameter of this portion right here, is 6.25 inches. So it is designed to fit 13 inch to 15 inch wheels. Bolt pattern again is a five on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern. The wheel studs diameter is a half an inch. So these half inch by 20 lug nuts will screw on there to hold your wheel to the hub. And the weight capacity on this hub is 1000 pounds. So when this is used with one on the other side of the axle, it'll meet your 2000 pound axle capacity.But that should do it for the review on the pre-greased trailer idler hub for the 2000 pound EZ Lube axles, the five on 4-1/2 inch bolt pattern.
