Electric Brake Conversion System

Electric brake to hydraulic brake conversion system


Conversion KitIf there is one single option trailer owner’s consider a "must have" it's hydraulic disc brakes. Hydraulic disc brakes will stop faster, last longer, and are considerably cheaper to maintain than electric drum brakes. The Hydrastar Hydraulic Braking System uses your standard in-cab brake controller to control hydraulic disc brakes that reside solely on the trailer. The tow vehicle does not need anything other than the in-cab controller to operate the hydraulic brake system. Hydraulic disc brakes outperform electric brakes in stopping power, have less brake fade and better heat dissipation. Convert your inferior electric brake system to a hydraulic brake system with Hydrastar. Everything you need from the actuator, to the disc brakes, and the brake lines/fittings are found in the Hydrastar Hydraulic Trailer Braking System.
