If you're thinking about making
your own swing away rear wheel carrier or jerry can holder for your 4WD, this
DIY kit will make your project a lot easier.
Commercially made single wheel carriers
can cost anywhere from $800 to $1800, and dual rear carriers can cost up to $4000+, so why not fire up the welder and save
yourself a few bucks.
Includes : Hub, bearings and
seals........Stub axle........Adjustable wheel mounting assembly........Heavy
duty latch and latch plate…….High tensile bolts and washers.
The hub is fully weldable as it's
machined from high quality Australian steel....it is not a wheel hub that
has had the flange machined off. It has been manufactured
specifically as a flangeless hub and is brand new and made in
Australia. Comes with full bearing and seal kit. Dimensions.....70mm
dia x 100mm high.
The hub is mounted on tapered
roller bearings which means very smooth operation and no movement. Bearings are
sealed and capped for protection from dust, water, etc. Bearings are the
same as on a trailer wheel, so you should never wear them out. Just pack the
bearings with grease the same as you would for a wheel.
The stub axle is 300mm long x 40mm, can be welded and is machined locally from high quality Australian steel shaft (Not a cheap imported trailer stub axle).
Also in the kit is the wheel
mounting assembly. Inner and outer sleaves allow for adjustment to suit
different tyres and wheel offsets. The face plate and outer sleave have been
laser cut. The inner sleave has the captive nuts welded in and the bolts are
high tensile M16. The face plate is 6mm plate…..just drill it to
suit your stud pattern.
The latch assembly is heavier duty
than you’ll find on commercially made products and has been designed
specifically for wheel carrier application.
The ‘over centre’ type latch has been used in industry for many years
and is the best way to secure a carrier and reduce rattle or excessive vibration.
The kit can be modified on request, for example, if you want to make a jerry can swing away arm you will not need the wheel mount assembly. Please contact me to discuss what you need.
