What Is The Difference Between the 6K and 7K Dexter Axle Electric Brake Assemblies


What is the difference between the 12X2 6000# and 7000# Nev-R-Adjust brakes? Are the magnets stronger and/or more aggressive brake shoes? I have Dexter 6000# 8 bolt axles and am looking for more braking power. Will the 7000# backing plates fit on the 6000# axles?


Expert Reply:

You are correct, the difference between the Electric Brake Assembly for 6K Axles, part # 23-458 / 23-459 and the Electric Brake Assembly for 7K axles, part # 23-180 / # 23-181, is that the 7K brake assembly has a stronger magnet, and also has a different compound on the brake shoes than the 6K electric brake assemblies for more stopping power.

Both the 6k and 7K brake assemblies, fit the same axle. Yes, the 7K backing plates on part # 23-180 / 23-181, will fit on 6K pound axles.
