Great hub if you have the older non spindle lube axle.
Posted by Ray on 16th Oct 2015
I havent had these on for long periods of time yet, but I put these on all my boat trailers because I like the fact that you can remove all the old grease once or twice a year by just pumping it out from the rear fitting. I think the newer designed spindle lube axles are even better than this. but you may have an older axle and I feel this is the next best thing. In my experience, bearings don't wear out all that fast unless the grease is compromised and becomes saturated with water (salt water being even worse) With vortex hubs I can pump out the old grease and basically refresh everything before the bearings have a chance to wear. The only thing I worry about being a problem long term are the plastic screw on caps that seal the front of the hub. I know the sun beating on things for years have a tendency to dry rot and crack things so I will be curious to see how well that holds up. My initial impressions of this product is that it is wonderful.
