The 3597A (Tie Down Engineering/Dexter Marine part number 49925) is a round painted axle that includes two loose spring seats. The beam is coated with a black powder finish to help combat daily use and time. With a 3,500 lbs. capacity, this axle has the strength for medium duty trailers and comes equipped with four hole flanges for brake mounting. The spindles feature pressed stainless steel wear rings for a tight grease seal fit. Grease zerks at the ends of the spindles allow convenient bearing greasing without having to take the tire off. This is best accomplished with grease caps that have rubber fittings.
- Black powder coat finish

- Fitting allows grease to easily flow to both the inner and outer bearings for a complete repack while purging contaminated grease without removing the hub
- To be used with EZ-Lube caps
- Comes with spring seats loose unless otherwise specified (welding is extra)
- Seats must be welded to the axle beam prior to installation

NOTE: We will only weld within the recommended spring center range provided by the manufacturer. Going inside or outside of this range may cause the strength of the axle to lessen or even cause a complete axle failure. Welded axles are non-returnable for any reason. When installing the axle, make sure that the camber bow is pointing up. This camber is designed to deflect the weight of the load once weight is applied to the trailer, essentially straightening out the axle to prevent uneven tire tread wear.
