View Full Version : leaking oil bath hubs on the 05' EZ loaders

I've had my new EZ Loader with the new oil bath hubs for less than 6 months. I've had it in twice already for leaking hubs! Just wondering if anyone else out there is having similar problems. Thanks.

My small EZ Loader has no brakes but I've had it since July 04 and have had no problems.

Yeah Id make sure the hitch is the right height as it can cause the brakes to drag and overheat.Mine is 3 and a half months old with no probs so far. Sorry to hear about yours!!

I've had mine for almost a year. No hub problems yet. I did have an issue with my brake lights filling with water. EZ loader had a new set on my door in two days. No problems since. Sorry to hear about yours.

I've had my E-Z Load since February of this year and no problems yet, knock on wood! The place you bought it should make it right,being its only 6 months"NEW"..... Good luck :)

don't stand on hubs at all or let any one step up on hubs.

Thanks for the replies. I don't have brakes, I just hope I didn't get a lemon. Listening to you guys, sounds kind of like I might have. They've fixed it twice under warranty, with no questions asked. The service has been great. I just hope I don't have to take it in again! Chasing salmon this weekend, I'll be looking for leaks.
