Review of Kodiak Trailer Brakes K2HR2D

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Kodiak Dacromet Disc Brake Kit with the 8" hub and rotor, five and 4-1/2" full pattern for 2,000 pound axles. Now this brake assembly makes it very easily to upgrade from drum brakes to disc brakes for better performance. This brakes will deliver better performance than drum brakes cause you get more consistent stopping, even at highway speeds. And dramatically shorter stopping distances. Also, the maintenance costs are lower than for drum brakes cause you have few moving parts to maintain, repair and replace.Now this kit will include two full brake assemblies. It includes two dacromet plated cast iron rotors.

The two dacromet plated cast iron hub spacers that are already installed. Two of the dacromet plated cast iron calibers with the four stainless steel caliber mounting bolts and then inaudible 00:00:47 two dacromet plated ductile iron caliber mounting brackets. Now the dacromet plating provides superior corrosion resistance for fresh water or salt water use. Right here they have a slip on cast iron over the hub rotor that'll mount, two a these included, spacers.The hub spacers will replace your standard ivor hubs. Now this does use industry standard bearings and seals that we do sell separate on our website.

Now the bearing races will already be pre-installed into the hub. The rotors, you can see are vented to prevent heat related damage by dissipating the heat. And the calibers they are a cast iron caliber. They're self adjusting for smooth equal braking. The cast iron construction does not flex like aluminum.

It is a low drag design so it retracts the piston further than other calibers for a cooler running brake.And I just wanna show you . Let me take the aluminum pads out here. Here is the stainless steel piston in here. It's 2-1/4" in diameter. It's about 30% larger than other brands, sort of give you more braking torque than the competition and they do come with the high performance ceramic brake pads.

Now the ductile iron mounting brackets, they do provide strength and durability. They give you side support angle design that'll ensure that the load that the load is placed on the bracket, not just the bolts. Does have extra embossing for additional thread contact to ensure nice tight secure mounting for the caliber guide bolts. And you can see it is a design is for a four bolt brake flange mounting configuration.Now hydraulic brake actuator and brake lines are required for these brakes to be activated. We do sell those separately on our website. You do wanna make sure that the brake actuator and the lines that you get will have to have at least a 1500 psi rating. These parts are made in the U.S.A. Again, it's designed to fit 2,000 pound axles. The wheel size it'll fit on these is anywhere from 10" to 13" diameter. The bolt pattern is a five around 4-1/2" bolt pattern. The rotor diameter edge to edge is 8" and the wheel stud diameter is a 1/2". But that should do it for the review on the Kodiak Dacromet Disc Brake Kit with the 8" hub and rotor, five, one 4-1/2" bolt pattern for 2,000 pound axles.
