4WD Swing Away Hub

The Couplemate™ 4WD Swing Away Spare Wheel hub is a swing-away flangeless hub with bearing cones.

Product Specifications

Couplemate™ manufactures Swing Away Hubs from K1040, a high-grade Australian steel. This is the same grade of steel used for stub axles, as seen in the 4WD Swing Away Rear Kits, as this ensures a sturdy and quality product.

The Flangeless Hub is manufactured to suit the following bearing profiles:

The kits contain NSK-branded inner and out bearings cones, our Australian-Made Dust Caps, and seals.

Use tapered roller bearings on trailer and caravan axles as they handle a variety of awkward weights (such as spare wheels, jerry cans, trailer lifts, etc.).

Replace 4WD swing-away spare wheel carrier if the weight exceeds the bearing limitations. This results in assembly collapse, and if such, replace it with the non-bearing type carrier.

Couplemate™ recommends either the 45mm Slimline or 45mm Parallel model due to the added load caused by the fulcrum effect on the rear bar.
