The Australian Durahub Bearing Buddy is the next generation of bearing protectors for boat trailers, caravans, camper and virtually all types of trailers.
The Durahub Bearing Buddy has a patented 'window' on the outside so you can ACTUALLY SEE the grease condition inside your wheel hub.
If water or containments have entered the bearing cavity, the bearing needs to be removed and re-packed.
When a hot wheel hub enters water, a vacuum is created when the grease contacts. The Durahub Bearing Buddy has a rubber insert that contacts into the hub relieving pressure to help prevent water ingress.
The Durahub has no grease nipples because the hub needs to be re-packed to remove water and contaminates.
Each unit is pre-tested under water.
ALKO PREMIUM BEARING BUDDY + DUST CAPS - PAIR
Automatically lubricates for longer bearing life.
Protects bearings from water and dust.
Suits standard trailer hubs.
Easy to install.
Red Dust Covers Included.
Pair included in Blister Pack.
ALKO bearing buddies have a grease blow hole above the spring. When the bearing buddy is over filled, the spring expands passed the blow hole expelling excess grease.
Important: It is not the gease that keeps water out, it is the 3psi pressure applied through the grease gun that keeps the water out. Pressure in the bearing cavity prevents water entry.

Extreme Off-road Use
Or just around Town
Did you know that every time you holiday, you add weight to your rig. Sounds too easy but many rigs become overweight after a few years adding a few kilos each year. We recommend overbuild 20%.
When building or modifying a trailer there are two critical issues that will decide your purchase.
(a) Weight you wish to carry.
The more weight you wish to carry, the higher the cost.
We can confidently build a reliable rig for you that will venture into Cape York or the Pilbara Country if that is where you wish to travel. City, Highway or Off-Road rigs vary slightly depending on your requirements.
