  1. Maybe this will help people see the way it works
  2. With a ez lube hub you could pump grease forever and never blow the rear seal . It will just keep coming out the front of the hub . if the rear seal isn’t sealing it doesn’t matter what you have the grease is going to leak out
  3. There is pressure with the bearing buddy if it doesn’t have a vent hole. Then there is sprin pressure . With the ez lube there is no pressure. Once they are full the grease just keeps coming back out at you through the bleeder/vent . Every time I take my trailer somewhere I pump each hub until I see grease coming back out at me , that way I know I’m starting each trip full . Watch the first video. Each time he pumps the gun it is pushing grease to the back of the hub/axle then forcing it back out the front . These don’t get you out of maintenance but assure your axels are full of grease , plus you can flush them if you want to
  4. These guys explain they don’t eliminate all maintenance. I like them because of the ability to flush them and the ability to fully pack the hub with grease.
  5. The trailer I have them on is used to haul a tractor and an excavator. It has breaks . I’ve had trailer for about 15 years now and never a problem with the hubs . I’ve had to work on the breaks a couple times but never for grease . These shouldn’t leak any sooner than anything else , especially bearing buddies . There’s no pressure on the seal , it’s just a more efficient way to re pac the hub . You usually won’t find these on the small trailers , I’m guessing because of cost
  6. If you look at higher end boat trailers they will usually have some version of this hub because they are always being backed into the water . This gives you a way to keep the hubs full of grease and the ability to flush any water out
  7. I have a trailer with this style of hub on it , and a small utility trailer with bearing buddies on it . I really prefer to be able to flush the bearings. The bearing selection seem to be all about cost
  8. No , bearing buddies are just spring loaded cups that keep the bearings packed with grease , you remove the caps on your hubs and replace them with the bearing buddies. As far as I have seen the EZ/Sure… etc ….. “ there’s multiple manufacturers” you can flush the hubs with fresh grease because there is a vent/path for the grease to flow through the hub and back out again
  9. Some like the two mentioned are , but others that have the same designation are not . Like 4350 or blue dot . Hogdson 4350 is also known for being very temperature insensitive , I’m not sure if the other 4350’s have that magical ability. Could be but I’ve never investigated it Hogdson seems to have the rights to the lions share of powders today. Winchester 296 and H110 are also supposed to be the exact same thing in a different bottle. I guy who used to work at Winchester when they still actually owned the powder company once told me that you never knew exactly what you were going to get when you were shooting to make a certain burning rate . Sometimes they would miss the mark by enough that they couldn’t sell it as what they were trying to make . Then they would use it in there own ammo or sell it to another ammunition manufacturer. This was when I was a kid so hopefully there techniques are better today.
  10. It’s honestly about shot placement as long as you can get the required penetration. The bullets we have today are much better. I’ve seen deer gut shot with all manner of rifles that hunters never recovered. And many shot with a bow that never made it past 100 yards. When I was a kid one of my dad’s friends was the first guy I ever met that was a handgun hunter . He used a 6” Python, and I don’t remember him ever not recovering a deer he shot . He was a good shot and respected the limitations of his chosen tool . A 223 with some of the bullet designs they have today will penetrate a lot of meat for such a little cartridge.
  11. It depends on cartridge and bullet weight, and if you’re looking for a target load or you want the maximum velocity. How important is temperature stability to you? And even after you determine all these things you’ll probably still have three or four choices
  12. This will explain it better than I would. It the newest latest greatest
  13. I resemble that remark. Just got a 6 creedmoor with a fiberglass bbl. I always tell my wife I could be wasting this money at the bar, at least you’ll have my guns to sell when I kick the bucket
  14. Supposedly range in populated areas. At least that was always the stated reason in Mi , it’s government at work . I knew people shooting 500 yards with muzzle loaders years ago.
