Specs:

  • Channel height: 12"
  • Mounting: straight, 3" wide trailer tongue
  • Model number: DA10
  • 1-Year warranty


Note: Because this actuator does not include a reverse lockout, it is recommended that you equip your trailer with free-backing brakes so that you can drive in reverse without the actuator triggering your trailer's brakes.


When you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, deceleration occurs and momentum pushes your trailer toward the rear of your vehicle. With surge brake systems, the hydraulic actuator is triggered as your trailer moves forward, once your tow vehicle starts to slow down. When this happens, the actuator contracts, applying force to its master cylinder. This in turn supplies the necessary hydraulic pressure to engage your trailer's brakes.


Adjustable Channel Design

The adjustable channel on this trailer brake actuator allows for ultimate versatility. Mount almost any type of coupler (sold separately) - from a standard ball coupler to a lunette ring or clevis attachment - to fit your specific application. In addition, the 5 mounting positions on the channel let you adjust the height of the coupler. Just place the coupler so that it matches the height of the ball mount or other hitch attachment on your tow vehicle and you will be able to tow your trailer levelly.

Video Transcript for Review of Demco Brake Actuator - Surge Brake Actuator - DM8101522

Today we're taking a look at a Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator. This hydraulic actuator is designed to activate your trailer brakes when your two vehicle slows or stops. It does feature an adjustable channel, which is this portion right here at the front. It has five different mounting positions for a coupler. Couplers are sold separately. Internally, it has a composite master cylinder; it's very durable and efficient.

It's a glass-reinforced nylon construction to resist rust and corrosion. Has a nice large reservoir to provide increased capacity for brake fluid.And then we have the automotive style diaphragm cap, which creates a completely enclosed system to help prevent contamination of the fluid. It also have your breakaway lever. This is designed to activate your trailer's brakes if the trailer disconnects from the tow vehicle. So it has a snap hook on the safety cable.

This connects to the tow vehicle, and if there was a disconnection or separation, your tow vehicle would pull on this cable, which would pull on the lever, which would then activate the trailer's brakes. We're looking at a really nice heavy duty steel construction with prime finishing. It's a weld on installation. The product's made in the USA. This is designed for trailers with hydraulic drum brakes.

Gross towing weight capacity is 12,500 pounds. Maximum tongue weight capacity is 1,250 pounds.The channel width right here is about three inches. Channel height is 12 inches. When it comes to mounting, it's designed to mount on a straight three-inch wide trailer tongue. Model number is DA10.

And the overall length of the unit as it sits on the table right now gives us a measurement of about . let's see here . it's really about 20 and 7/8 so I'm just going to call it around 21 inches long. At the back we have the connection point for the brake lines there. Now please note, because the actuator does not include a reverse lock out it is recommended that you equip your trailer with free-backing brakes. That way you can drive in reverse without the actuator triggering your trailer's brakes. That's going to do it for today's look at the Demco Hydraulic Brake Actuator.
