  • Adjustable channel has 3 different mounting positions for coupler (sold separately)
  • Zinc plating offers excellent corrosion resistance
    • 500-Hour salt spray rating - great for marine applications
  • Composite master cylinder is durable and efficient
    • Glass-reinforced nylon construction resists rust and corrosion
    • Large reservoir provides increased capacity for brake fluid
    • Automotive-style diaphragm cap creates completely enclosed system to help prevent contamination of fluid
  • Acetal copolymer lining provides smooth operation as actuator telescopes in and out
  • Breakaway included
  • Heavy-duty steel construction
  • Bolt-on installation
    • Requires 1/2" x 4-1/2" Grade-5 bolts (not included) for mounting
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: trailers with hydraulic disc brakes
  • Gross towing weight: 8,000 lbs
  • Maximum tongue weight: 800 lbs
  • Channel width: approximately 3"
  • Channel height: 8"
  • Mounting: straight, 3" wide trailer tongue
  • Model number: DA91
  • 1-Year warranty


Note: Because this actuator does not include a reverse lockout, it is recommended that you equip your trailer with free-backing brakes so that you can drive in reverse without the actuator triggering your trailer's brakes.


When you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, deceleration occurs and momentum pushes your trailer toward the rear of your vehicle. With surge brake systems, the hydraulic actuator is triggered as your trailer moves forward, once your tow vehicle starts to slow down. When this happens, the actuator contracts, applying force to its master cylinder. This in turn supplies the necessary hydraulic pressure to engage your trailer's brakes.


Adjustable Channel Design

The adjustable channel on this trailer brake actuator allows for ultimate versatility. Mount almost any type of coupler (sold separately) - from a standard ball coupler to a lunette ring or clevis attachment - to fit your specific application. In addition, the 3 mounting positions on the channel let you adjust the height of the coupler. Just place the coupler so that it matches the height of the ball mount or other hitch attachment on your tow vehicle and you will be able to tow your trailer levelly.


Sturdy, Corrosion-Resistant Construction

Made of sturdy steel, this hydraulic trailer brake actuator features a durable zinc coating that is designed to limit rust and corrosion. This zinc coat has a 500-hour salt spray rating, making the actuator perfect for marine use. In addition, the composite master cylinder is made of corrosion-resistant glass-reinforced nylon to further ensure durability for marine applications.

Video Transcript for Review of Demco Brake Actuator - Surge Brake Actuator - DM8758721

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at the Demco Hydraulic Disc Brake Actuator with the eight inch adjustable channel center position and has an 8,000 pound gross towing weight capacity. Now this hydraulic actuator activates your trailer's brakes when your tow vehicle slows or stops. Basically what happens is when you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, deceleration occurs and the momentum will push your trailer toward the rear of your vehicle. So with the surge brake system, this actuator is triggered as your trailer moves forward, once your tow vehicle starts to slow down. And basically when this happens, the actuator, the inner portion here, will slide back and apply force to the master cylinder in the back here and this in turn supplies the necessary hydraulic pressure to engage your trailer's brakes.

Now, this actuator uses an acetal copolymer lining on the inside here, provides a nice smooth operation as the actuator telescopes in and out. This one here has an adjustable channel, offers three different mounting positions for your coupler. Now, the coupler's not included. We do sell that separately on our website. The channel height on this if we measure it from the very bottom to the very top is eight inches.

The inside width on the channel is gonna be right at three inches wide. Now this is a heavy duty steel construction, has a nice sink plated finish on it to prevent corrosion. It does use a composite master cylinder, right back here. It is very durable and efficient. It is glass reinforced nylon construction which will resist rusting corrosion and it is a large reservoir, provides increased capacity for your brake fluid.

The very top here you notice it has your large, automotive style diaphragm cap, which will create a completely enclosed system, helps prevent contamination of the brake fluid. Now this does include the breakaway cable and the hook that is required by law. But if you notice here, here's your cable and then your hook on this end with the keeper and the reason it's require by law, this breakaway system will prevent a trailer runaway situation. Basically, when you install this and hook a to your tow vehicle, you'll take this hook and hook this to your tow vehicle. And then what'll happen is, if by chance this comes disconnected from your tow vehicle, it will pull this cable, which would activate this lever, which would then apply the pressure in the master cylinder to the brakes to keep the trailer from a runaway situation.

Now this is a bolt-on installation. It does mount to a straight three inch wide trailer tow. This part has made the USA again, the application for this actuator is trailers with hydraulic disc brakes. Gross towing weight capacity on this is 8,000 pounds, maximum tongue weight of 800 pounds. It also goes by the part number which is stamped on here of model DA91. One last note I do wanna mention is because this actuator does not include a reverse lockout in the back here, it is recommended that you equip the trailer with either the reverse lockout solenoid that screws into the master cylinder or to have free backing brakes on your trailer so that you can drive in reverse without this actuator triggering your trailer's brakes. But that should do it for the review on the Demco Hydraulic Disc Brake Actuator with the eight inch adjustable channel center position and an 8,000 pound gross towing weight capacity..
