Made in the USA

The Hydrastar line of trailer brake actuators are the standard of quality, reliability, and performance for electric over hydraulic trailer braking technology. Fractions of a second translate in to feet of stopping distances when braking your trailer and with Hydrastar trailer brake actuators, those fractions of a second are what our actuators are built for.

Hydrastar gives you all the control of your trailer braking system from inside of the tow vehicle, with the stopping power of hydraulics. The fastest response time results in maximum braking safety for yourself, your family, and what you tow.

All the issues you face with electric and surge brakes are eliminated with a Hydrastar. Hydrastar trailer brake actuators do not require adjusting, as electric brakes do, there is less maintenance associated with Hydrastar, and as a result less long term cost. Hydrastar also eliminates the feel of being pushed, potentially reducing "jack-knifing," gives you braking control while backing your trailer, unlike surge brakes, and eliminates brake drag and brake fade.
