Electric Drum Brake and Hub/Drum for 10K Axle


Hello, I have a M105A2 Trailer. I want to change the braking system to Electric. Do you have the drums available so that I can order them? Or would I have to replace the whole axle? The trailer is a 1-1/2 ton with a 10000 lb. axle

I linked our main page for all electric drum brakes rated for a 10K axle. These are all 12-1/4-inch diameter but vary in width; 3-1/2-, 3-3/8- and 4-inch widths are available. We have these in both manual-adjust and self-adjust types.

For example, part # AKEBRK-10 is a high-value pair of self-adjusting left- and right-hand brakes in the 12-1/4 x 3-3/8 inch size which fits wheels 15-inches in diameter and larger. These brakes use a 7-bolt mounting pattern.

We do offer a 10K oil bath type hub/drum for 10K axles, part # 8-430-5UC3 from Dexter, which has the 8-on-6-1/2 bolt wheel pattern. This uses inner/outer bearings 387A and 25580 so if your spindle dimensions match the bearing inner diameters then this hub will work for you. This hub will work with the above brake.
