HOW IT WORKS
DURAHUB EXTREME PACK Available in 4 different hub cap sizes.
“We made the switch from using the traditional bearing buddy type protector to the Durahub Extreme product in June 2008. This has proven to have been a great investment for Easytow Trailers. Prior to the change, our customers were experiencing issues with bearing failure which not only inconvenienced our customers but also cost our company in warranty claims. Since the introduction of the Durahub Extreme bearing protector, I can’t remember having had any warranty claims on wheel bearings or axles. Our customers can now easily monitor the condition of their rear seal and save themselves time and money, which means more time boating.“
“My company, Express Boat Transport, is in the business of moving boats up to 10 metres in length and weighing up to 4.5 tonnes. When we first took over the business our biggest problem to overcome was the continual failure of wheel bearings. Our tri-axle boat trailer was continually in and out of salt water and then undertaking trips of up to 2000 kms or more. On nearly every trip a wheel bearing would fail resulting in seizures, lost wheels and stripped stub axles. Maintenance and replacement of parts, plus time lost on the road, became a major headache. In September 2005, I had a discussion with Andy Chan from Durahub about whether their product would stand up to the punishment our trailer endured. He suggested we trial Durahub and see for ourselves. Since fitting Durahubs to our trailer in October 2005, we have travelled over 31,000 kms in three months with very few problems. The sight glass in the Durahub allowed you to monitor the oil level in the bearings creating peace-of-mind. Another unexpected bonus was a fuel saving of between 5–10% because the bearings were running in oil not grease. Durahub has taken a lot of the stress and worry out of my business as well as improving the bottom line with improved fuel consumption and hugely reducing maintenance costs.“
