Before purchasing replacement hubs, consider all the options available. Not all hubs are created equal and price should not the only factor used in determining which replacement hubs you buy for your trailer.
Basic idler hubs used on most marine and power sports trailers require consistent and routine maintenance. Every two or three years, hubs need to be removed, disassembled, cleaned, and have new grease packed into the bearings. The amount and type of usage may also require the periodic replacement of bearings and seals.
Vortex hubs from Tie Down Engineering offer an alternative. The engineers at Tie Down, working with Lucas Oil Products, have developed a maintenance-free replacement hub that offers a six-year, 100,000-mile limited warranty.
The design and components used in Vortex hubs protect it by locking in lubricants and keeping water and other contaminants out. The addition of marine grease from Lucas Oil Products provides superior lubrication.
Lucas marine grease is heavy duty lithium complex grease certified by the National Lubricating Grease Institute for use in wheel bearing lubrication. Lucas marine grease has high heat tolerance and provides rust and corrosion protection in both fresh and salt water environments.
Vortex hubs are available in capacities ranging from 1,250 pounds up to 3,000 pounds. Customers also have a choice in the coatings for their Vortex hubs of either the standard E-Coat finish or the added protection of the GalvX finish which will stand up to years of exposure and harsh outdoor and marine environments. Vortex hubs will provide years of maintenance-free performance with the security of an industry-leading warranty.
