Will 6,000 lb Surge Brake Actuator Work on Single Axle Boat Trailer


My boat weighs about 2,500lbs. It is in a single axle trailer as it is a 19 foot boat. Is 6,000 lbs actuator overkill?


Expert Reply:

The Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator # DM8605101 will work great for you; the 6,000 lb tow rating and 600 lb tongue weight rating are just the maximum capacities for the actuator and you won't have an issue with your single-axle boat trailer being under that weight rating.

This actuator is designed for use with trailers that have disc brakes and it will fit a 2 inch hitch ball. I have added a link to a video review of the actuator for you to check out as well.
