Trailer hubs and stubs come in a wide array of styles and sizes. Trailers that are used on the NZ roads mainly use the large taper roller bearing in their hub/stub sets. Typically the tapper rollers are for larger volumes or weights than the straight shaft bearings and the common 2500kg hub/stub sets from Transquip use common bearings to make bearing replacements straight forward. When choosing the right products, appreciate the weight of the trailer and other physical aspects as a great guide towards purchasing the perfect hubs and stubs for your application....
When buying trailer hubs and stubs, the load rating is a vital consideration. 5 stud trailer hubs can be an ideal choice for your most towing trailers. The most important point to note is that the stability and safety of the trailer should be the primary goal when purchasing the axles and trailer springs. Moreover, ensure your trailer couplings and safety chains are correct for the intended use and rating.
Some of the common braking systems include the hydraulic brakes that do not require any extra connections to the vehicle to operate the trailer brakes. Unlike the electric brakes, the hydraulic ones create a mechanical pressure that triggers the hydraulic movement of the trailers brakes, and that’s why they have become popular among many trailer owners due to their simple effectiveness.
New Zealand has strict and clear legal brake requirements for towing trailers. Ensure you meet and understand these legal requirements. For trailers with less than 2000kg load capacity often the main thing you need to check is the towing capacity of the towing vehicle and the capacity of the trailer. However, for a load capacity between 2000 and 2500kg, the requisite is to have override brakes or electric brakes. For a GVM of more than 2500kg, the braking power may need a cab controller. The regulations require some trailers to have a mechanical parking brake, and a breakaway system to increase safety.
