  • Galvanized 3500# 2x2 Drop V Saddle Axle
  • Hot dip galvanized trailer axle with the revolutionary Spindle-Lube® hub lubrication system.  This remarkable axle has a hub packing tool built into each spindle. It allows you to pump the old grease out of the hub every time you pump new grease in. All this can be done without removing the wheel or hub from the trailer (see drawing). You will find this type of axle on Basstracker® trailers and many other trailers included in the major brand boat and trailer packages.

3500# Galvanized Spindle-Lube 2x2 drop "V" saddle boat trailer axle that sits over the springs

This custom galvanized boat trailer axle is manufactured to the customer's track and spring center measurements.  Hot dip galvanized trailer axles provide maximum corrosion resistance in saltwater applications and can last years. All boat trailer axles require 4-6 business days for fabrication. There must be a minimum difference of 14" between the track and the spring center measurements in order for this axle to be built.

In order for an axle order to be placed Champion Trailers will need to know the track and spring center measurement.  Make sure to take a look below to see how to measure and how to pick out your new trailer axle.

How to Order an Axle

  • Select your axle part number from the axle charts.  Be sure to identify axle over or axle under springs when you select your part number.  You want an axle that is similar to the one currently under the trailer to avoid any problems with clearance.
  • We need your axle track measurement.  This measurement is taken from the face of one hub to the face of the other hub.  DO NOT measure from the back of the hub or brake flange as this will provide an incorrect track measurement.


  • The only other measurement needed is the spring center. This measurement is from the center of one spring to the center of the opposite spring. This is a very important measurement as this is where your springs will sit on the axle.
  • (Quick Tip) An easy way to measure your spring center is to hook a tape on the outside of one spring and measure to the inside of the opposite spring.  This will give you an accurate measurement.


How does the Spindle Lube Spindle Work?

This trailer axle features the Spindle-lube ® hub lubrication system which allows you to grease the trailer hubs without removing them from the axle. Unlike a bearing 'buddy', which only pumps grease into the front of the trailer hub and can often be over-pumped and blow the grease seal, Spindle-lube trailer axles pump the grease to the back of the trailer hub by a hole bored through the length of the trialer spindle where it enters the hub just before the rear seal. The grease then moves forward filling the trailer hub and trailer bearings completely. When re-packing hubs with these trailer axles, the old grease will come out of the front of the hubs, around the tip of the grease gun. The grease should continue to be pumped until new grease comes out of the front of the hub. Then just replace the rubber plug into the dust cap and you are ready to go!!

    Thanks to the people at Champion they have a great website that is easy to use and find what you need. The sales staff I talked with were very knowledgeable and answered every question I ask them. The axle arrived about a week earlier than expected it measured the exact dimensions that I told them to make it. It was a nice quality piece of workmanship. Removed my old 21 year old axle bolted the new one in place installed the two new axle hubs and the mounting hardware now I am ready to go fishing just in time for bass season. Thanks Champion I will be back as needed and tell all my boating friends about your service. 5 star !!!!!!
