Review of Demco Brake Actuator - nassembled DA20 Hydraulic Brake Actuator - DM6186

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Demco Unassembled Hydraulic Brake Actuator. This is a DA20 hydraulic actuator that's going to activate your trailer's hydraulic drum brakes when your tow vehicle slows or stops. This does come unassembled and unprimed, so that you can very quickly and easily weld this onto your trailer frame, and it's going to help prevent any damage to the internal components while you're welding it in place. This will weld onto a straight three inch wide trailer tongue. This is a heavy-duty steel construction, so it is going to give us a gross towing weight capacity of 20,000 pounds and a maximum tongue weight of 2,000 pounds. more

Michael: Hi there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at this Titan brake actuator with electric lockout.This is going to mount onto your trailer with a three inch wide straight tongue. And with disc brakes, this will apply the brakes on your trailer when you are slowing and stopping your vehicle. Basically, the way this works as your vehicle comes to a stop, the momentum of the trailer is going to keep pushing it forward, which will then cause the actuator to compress. As it compresses, it's going to pump that hydraulic fluid to your hydraulic brakes to apply the brakes and slow your trailer down as well.Now, this does have a really nice, unique roller design, that's going to help reduce resistance as it is telescoping in and out, and it's going to help create a nice straight line movement, so you're not going to have to worry about binding or getting stuck or anything like that.This does have a sturdy, durable steel frame, steel construction to it. more
