etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums - Pre Greased Idler Hub - AKIHUB-865-7-2-K Review


Jeff: Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we take a look at this pre-greased trailer idler hub for 7,000 pound axles. Has an eight on six and a half inch bolt pattern. Now, this trailer hub assembly will fit idler axles. This is a pre-greased hub. It's very easy to install.

There's no need to have to pack your bearings with grease. They'll come already greased with the lithium complex multipurpose grease. It will include the pre-greased inner bearing, which is part number L2558O and the bearing race that rides in. And the outer bearing that's pre-greased, part number 14125A, and the bearing race pre-installed for that. Also, at the very back it will have the installed grease seal in the rear.

That's part number GS-2250DL. I don't know if you can see, I laid out the remaining pieces. It comes with the standard grease cap that goes right here in the front, and then you can see eight of the half inch by 20 size lug nuts.Now, this hub is a sturdy iron construction, has a nice zinc enriched paint for durability. It is QAI and CSA certified. A few specs on this.

The application is for a 7,000 pound trailer axle with number 42 spindles, and it is compatible with standard axles from most manufacturers, including Axletech, Dexter, Lippert and AL-KO. Now, the hub diameter from this side to this side is eight, three quarter inches. So it will accept wheel size 16 up to 17 and a half inch wheels. Bolt pattern we mentioned is an eight on six and a half inch bolt pattern. And the wheel stud diameter is a half an inch.

So it uses these half inch lug nuts to hold your wheel and tire assembly to your hub. But that should do it for the review on this pre-greased trailer idler hub for 7,000 pound axles with the eight on six and a half inch bolt pattern..
