Title: Trailer brakes
Post by: skip on March 16, 2018, 08:59:55 am
Hi guys,

I'm sure I am not the only one who experiences the constant battle with trailer brake maintenance. More specifically, hydraulic disc brakes.

I have found that you would be lucky to service only once a year - pistons in the calipers and plungers in the reservoir tend to seize up more often than not causing binding issues.

I have seen a cable operated disc brake system. Anyone have any experience on this? How effective is this system?

From my observation it appears a lot less finicky than its hydraulic equivalent, with much bigger tolerances.

Brakes are important as our rig is 3.3t+.

Phone Buirquip international in Jet park Jozi
They got disk brakes that work without a piston and use a cable system
everything is galvanized and is for ski boat trailers.
