Product DescriptionRepresenting over five years of product development and three years of continuous testing, this hydraulic trailer brake actuator has a unique all-aluminum master cylinder that incorporates the shock absorber into the master cylinder assembly. This provides the tow vehicle operator with a warning signal when the brake fluid is at a low level. In addition, the oversized master cylinder provides the higher pressures required to run disc brakes and the added brake fluid volume to run both tandem and tri-axle configurations. Higher pressures mean quicker stops when using traditional drum brakes. Fits trailer frames up to 3"W x 5"H and accommodates 2" hitch balls.

Q:What size ball does this product receive?
Is it sufficient for a boat and trailer with combined load of 7,500 lbs?Asked on 5/26/2009 by Anonymous from Cooperstown, NY
A:2" ball, which is included with the 8000lb actuators. This item is rated for 8000lbs by the manufacturer and should work for this application if the weight has been verified. Please verify the specs on your old actuator before purchase.Answered on 5/27/2009 by Ryan from Overtons
