DCB Performance Boats

"Hydrastar has been a great addition to our mandatory requirement on all trailers that leave DCB. Although pulling our boats in style often gets the glory, it's the trust and reliability in the braking and stopping power that puts our mind at ease as we tow these boats across the country. Thank you Hydrastar!"

Roads Less Traveled

Our disc brake conversion on our 14,000 lb., 36' fifth wheel trailer has made a huge difference in our confidence and safety on the road.

We live in our trailer full-time, and the difference in stopping power between our old electric drum brakes and these new electric over hydraulic disc brakes is astonishing. Within the first 1,200 miles of towing with the new braking system we drove through some frighteningly dense and fast moving urban traffic as we crossed the country from Texas to Florida. These new brakes literally saved our lives on I-10 in Louisiana when we were cut off by a car that unexpectedly came to a complete stop just inches in front of us.

We did a best-of-breed selection of components for our brake system upgrade, and the Hydrastar brake actuator was head and shoulders beyond its competitors because of its incredible durability and ruggedness. We found Cargo Towing Solutions was a great company to work with too. We had a lot of questions about how to tackle such a major upgrade on our trailer, and they answered them all quickly and succinctly.
Although we did not do the installation ourselves, the trailer repair facility that did the work told us they found the installation of the Hydrastar brake actuator to be straight forward and easy. We were floored that the entire upgrade took less than three hours.

Whenever we are out on the open road towing our home behind us now we find ourselves murmuring, "Wow, these brakes are amazing!" We highly recommend the Hydrastar brake actuator to anyone considering a trailer disc brake conversion.

Highliner Trailers Ltd.

"We are a small, regional boat trailer manufacturer who have been installing the Hydrastar pump system on our trailers since the days of the 600 psi units in a tin box, with their huge response times. The product has improved considerably since those early days.

We have had negligible warranty issues, which have been handled promptly when required. As importantly, technical enquiries have also been dealt with expeditiously.

Highliner Trailers is happy to endorse both the product and the company."

Can't Say Thank You Enough

I wish to thank you and Wendell for the diagnosis of the HBA 16 on my trailer this new one y'all sent me is working perfectly. My truck and trailer has never broke this evenly since day I bought it. Great results with this one. There is no pushing or pulling on my truck and very less pressure on my brake pedal in the truck.

Again I wish to thank y'all for a great job on the diagnosis of the unit and perfect consumer support
