Dexter Axle Brake Actuator - DX56FR

  • Surge Brake Actuator
  • Disc Brakes
  • 2 Inch Ball Coupler
  • Bolt-On
  • 7500 lbs GTW
  • Electric Lockout
  • Straight Tongue Coupler
  • Dexter Axle

Use this actuator to synchronize your trailer brakes with your tow-vehicle brakes. Over-center latch mechanism only engages when the actuator is fully seated on 2" hitch ball. Designed for hydraulic disc brakes and 3x5 straight tongue.


Features:

  • Hydraulic actuator activates trailer's brakes when tow vehicle slows or stops
  • Electric reverse lockout lets you back up without actuating trailer brakes
    • Solenoid activates automatically when you shift into reverse
  • Low-profile coupler latch ensures easy, secure connection
    • Over-center latch mechanism only engages when the actuator is fully seated on hitch ball
  • Aluminum master cylinder is better at reducing corrosion than cast steel master cylinders
  • Zinc plating offers excellent corrosion resistance
  • Bolt-on installation
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: hydraulic disc brakes
  • Ball size: 2"
  • Mounting: 3" x 5" straight tongue
  • Capacity: 7,500 lbs
  • 2-Year limited warranty


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 actuator is triggered as your trailer moves forward while the tow vehicle slows. The actuator telescopes, applying force to its master cylinder, which in turn supplies the necessary hydraulic pressure to engage the trailer's brakes.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I slipped this into my boat mate trailer for 2001 moomba. Took about an hour to hook up and bleed the system with a buddy. Works great! If you can use simple tools and are mechanically savvy this is a no brainer.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I’m very satisfied. I always check out etrailer for all my trailer needs and this time was no different. In under 2 hours by myself I changed out the old with the new ( pictures) and ready to bleed the brakes. I always let people know to contact etrailer with there needs. Thanks

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I ordered this surge brake hitch without the back up solenoid. Due to supply chain problems it was going to take 3 months to ship. Upon receiving it far ahead of schedule it had the solenoid included at no extra charge meaning that someone at etrailer expedited my order and kept me happy at etrailers expense. How can you top that for service?

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I received my order two days ago, Quick shipping but it was the wrong part. I called and spoke with Noah who sent me an email asking me to take a picture of the part and add my phone number. I did right a way and still have not heard back. I emailed Noah today asking about the status no reply, now Im on a 9min hold to try and talk with someone about my replacement past. The wrong part looks like a good part if it fit my trailer.


Comments
Mark, Im sorry Noah didnt reply to you in a timely manner. We will get this taken care of and send out the correct part.

The product is exactly what I ordered and it was shipped quickly. Only problem is it is missing the upper cap to cover the brake fluid reservoir.

This product doesn’t fit over 3” tongue. Its the exact same size as a 3” tongue.Unusable. Had to remove the internal portion and modify my trailer tongue to fit. Arrived as the worst packaged item I’ve ever received. It was barely still in the box. Whom ever packaged this didn’t have a clue what they were doing.

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Brake Actuator



  • Does The Dexter DX7.5L A-160 Brake Actuator W/ Electric Lockout DX56FR Work On A Tandem Trailer?
    The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc - 2" Ball - Zinc - 7.5K # DX56FR you were looking at is confirmed to work with tandem axle trailers like yours, and is a great option as long as your trailer uses disc brakes. I included a video of the # DX56FR for you to take a look at.

  • DX56FR Brake Actuator Compatibility with 6,000 lb Disc Brakes
    Yes, you will have no problem using the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 7,500 lbs Brake Actuator item # DX56FR. The weight rating is for gross weight and tongue weight and the stronger actuator will work perfectly fine with your current disc breaks. Going up in strength is a way better option than drilling through your tongue or rerouting brake cables.

  • Can the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout be Used With Swing Away Tongue
    The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout # DX56FR is designed to mount on a 3" x 5" straight tongue. In order to make this work for your trailer, you would need to use a flexible brake line since the actuator and line will be folding away. I have attached a video review as well as a link to all of our brake lines for your reference.

  • Can I Weld on a Bolt on Brake Actuator?
    Yes, you can weld on the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc - 2" Ball - Zinc - 7.5K item # DX56FR you referenced. You will want to make sure you remove the zinc coating and get down to the bare metal. I have attached a couple of diagrams I made with the dimensions on both actuators.

  • What is Difference Between Dexter Couplers # DX29FR and # DX56FR
    The difference is the trailer tongue size the coupler was designed to fit. The part # DX29FR is designed to fit a 3 inch by 4 inch straight tongue whereas the part # DX56FR is designed to fit a 3 inch by 5 inch straight tongue. Aside from that they are both 7,500 lb trailer coupler actuators with a 7,500 lb capacity designed for 2 inch hitch balls.

  • Difference Between Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuators For Disc Brakes
    That's a really good question, and there is a difference between the 7,500 lb Dexter DX7.5L A-60 actuators for disc brakes; the differences are both in what they fit, as well as their length. - 14" Long & Top-Mounted For 3" Wide Trailer Tongue: Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX89FR - 19" Long & Bolts To 3" x 4" Trailer Tongue: Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX29FR - 19" Long & Bolts To 3" x 5" Trailer Tongue: Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator # DX56FR Apart from that, these...

  • Can Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Actuator DX56FR Replace Older Titan Aero 6000?
    As long as your trailer has a 3" x 5" trailer tongue then the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout # DX56FR will replace your Titan Aero 6000 Coupler. Keep in mind this actuator is designed for disc brakes, so if you have drum brakes this will not work for you. If your trailer has drum brakes you will need the # DX33FR instead. I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Replacement For A Dexter A-60 Brake Actuator With A Broken Safety Cable
    This does happen every now and then, but you will need the Dexter Replacement Emergency Breakaway Cable Kit # DX64XR. This is specifically for the A-60 actuators, which the # DX56FR is. With that said, on the bottom or underneath side of the inner member of the actuator, there is a small tab that you can push down with a flat blade screwdriver (refer to the included image as to what this looks like). Depressing this is supposed to release the internal workings of the actuator and grant...

  • Brake Actuator Kit Recommendation for 2010 Ranger Marine Trailer

  • Solution for Needing Replacement Tie Down LP70 Actuator
    While we don't have replacement parts for a Model LP70 actuator, we do have a great replacement solutions for it. Like the 70LP, these actuators are a fit for a 2" hitch ball, but they just have a slightly larger capacity at 7,500 lbs. You didn't mention whether you had drum or disc brakes so I'll give the options for both Disc Brakes: Dexter DX7.5 Drop-N-Go Brake Actuator - Disc Brakes # 099-175-20

  • Is the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System Compatible With 20.5x8-10 Tires
    It sounds like you would like to replace your axle and suspension with the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System # ASR2000S02. Assuming your current axle and leaf springs are rated for 2,000 lbs this would be a great replacement option and will work with your 20.5x8-10 tires. For a disc brake kit that matches the Timbren bearings you can use the Kodiak Disc Brake Kit - 10" Hub/Rotor - 5 on 4-1/2 - Dacromet - 3,500 lbs # K2HR35D. You will also need hydraulic brake lines # 18SI-BLKIT....
