Video Transcript for Kodiak Trailer Brakes KDBC250D Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Kodiak disc brake caliper in a Dacromet finish for 7000 lbs to 8000 lbs axles. Now, this caliper is a cast iron construction, prevents flexing, keeps the breaking torque consistent. It is a self adjusting design, so make sure it is a nice smooth, even breaking. Has a load-drag ability to retract the piston further than traditional models, so it'll give you less friction, which leads to a cooler running break.Now, the piston itself in here, we remove the brake shoe and you can see right in there, it's a 2 1/2" diameter piston, which is about 30% larger than in most disc brake systems. It gives you increased braking torque, shorter stopping distances. The pads they use are a ceramic brake pad, provides superior performance for more consistent braking.

Able to withstand high temperatures from maximum ware.Now, the caliper itself, you can see has a nice Dacromet platting to it. Provide excellent corrosion resistance for fresh water or salt water use. Has a 300 to 400 hour salt spray rating on it. The caliper will include everything shown here. The two stainless steel guide bolts are included.

The dual-port lead screw, the stainless steel piston we mentioned, and I showed you the ceramic brake pads. This part is made in the USA.Again, the application, this is for disc brakes that are on axles rated at 7000 lbs to 8000 lbs, and it has rotor diameter of 13". Again, the piston diameter on the inside of this caliper is 2 1/2" in diameter. But, that should do it for the review on the Kodiak disc brake caliper in a Dacromet finish, for 7000 pound to 8000 pound axles.

Works as it should, I'm a little disappointed that the finish begins to rust fairly quickly, I thought they had a salt spray test of quite a few hours. The real issue is the rubbery isolators that the caliper rides on get loose and the caliper rattles on the slide bolts, this has happened with all the calipers I've purchased from Kodiak, perhaps something in bronze or a harder durometer urethane would hold up better. I was thinking about having some bronze bushings machined to try out that material

- KDBC250D

Product was exactly what I ordered. The anti corrosive coating made some of the pads not fit properly. This required some light filing to the brake pads, other than that, it was perfect.

We are very fortunate to have this contact for our trailer part purchase, and future purchases needed to keep our customer's rolling. Julie was very specific, and kept us notified of our trailer part purchase, shipping, etc. Thank you for making this order happen for us, as well as our customer. Sincerely, Rich Riggio-Big Thunder Marine.

Just what I needed for my boat trailer. Not sure why but the rubber seal failed and cracked on one of my calipers after about three years and the salt water froze it up. This seemed a reasonable price and quick shipping for a replacement. I should have noticed but didn't that a set of shoes actually comes with it, so for me that was a bonus.

- KDBC250D

Excellent product, & great service, fast shipping. What more could we ask for? Thank you etrailer. Sincerely, Rich Riggio-Big Thunder Marine.

You were recommended by the manufacturer as they said your price would be much better. Parts were correct and easy installation. Great service and got me back on the road quick.

This was my second purchase in three days from etrailer.com. I am the parts manager at a boat sales and service center and we needed quick service. Katie provided exceptional customer service and my parts arrived earlier than expected in both cases. When I need trailer parts in the future I will be checking with etrailer.com first!

  • Can Kodiak 250 Brake Calipers be Used in Place of Titan 250 Brake Calipers
    When Titan still made brakes the components for them were Kodiak. Since you had 250 calipers before then you can use the Kodiak calipers # KDBC250D as replacements if you want to. I have linked a video showing the features of this product for you.
