Why Are Dexter Trailer Brake Assemblies More Expensive


Dexter parts were more expensive is the brakes the dexter breaks a better brake shoe and the drums or is it just a brand-name


Expert Reply:

The higher cost of Dexter electric brakes like the Nev-R-Adjust # 23-459 definitely has a lot to do with their name. The name is so recognizable in the industry because they have been around for a very long time, their parts are extremely reliable, and they are made right here in the USA.

With that being said the more cost-efficient options we offer still do a great job. In fact our brake assemblies such as # AKEBRK-7L-SA for the Left Hand and # AKEBRK-7R-SA for the right hand feature automotive-grade friction material with pads that are fully bonded and not riveted like those from other manufacturers, including Dexter. This greatly reduces the chances of cracking and crumbling on the pads which simply leads to a longer lifespan.

These assemblies are a great option in place of the Dexter product you referenced. I have attached a couple short video demonstrations that you can check out as well.
