Use this actuator to synchronize your trailer brakes with your tow-vehicle brakes. Over-center latch mechanism only engages when the actuator is fully seated on 2" hitch ball. Designed for hydraulic disc brakes and 3x3 or 3x4 straight tongue.


Features:

  • Hydraulic actuator activates trailer's brakes when tow vehicle slows or stops
  • Low-profile coupler latch ensures easy, secure connection
    • Over-center latch mechanism only engages when the actuator is fully seated on hitch ball
  • Aluminum master cylinder is better at reducing corrosion than cast steel master cylinders
  • Raw metal finish
  • Weld-on installation
  • Manual lockout kit sold separately
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: hydraulic drum brakes
  • Ball size: 2"
  • Mounting: 3" x 3" or 3" x 4" straight tongue
  • Capacity: 7,500 lbs
  • 2-Year limited warranty


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 actuator is triggered as your trailer moves forward while the tow vehicle slows. The actuator telescopes, applying force to its master cylinder, which in turn supplies the necessary hydraulic pressure to engage the trailer's brakes.


Because this model 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 triggering your trailer's brakes.

Video Transcript for Review of Dexter Brake Actuator - Surge Brake Actuator for Drum Brakes - DX67FR

Hello, neighbor, Steven here with etrailer.com. Folks, we're looking at our Dexter DX 7.5 L model A60 brake actuator. It's a weld on application made for drum brakes only, and it fits a two inch ball size. It's rated at 7,500 pounds. Folks, this hydraulic actuator activates your trailer's brakes when the tow vehicle slows or stops. It is a low profile coupler latch.

It's very simple and easy to use. I'll show you that in a second. It has an over center latch mechanism that only engages when the actuator is fully seated on the hitch ball. The aluminum master cylinder inside of here is better at reducing corrosion than the cast steel master cylinders that are out there. It's got a nice raw finish.

It's just bare metal here, but it has been cleaned, and it's ready for priming and painting after you've welded it in place. Now it does have a manual lockout kit that is sold separately. It does not include it. You do get the manual lockout lever though. You get the hard plastic cover to cover the fluid cap and you get the nice breakaway cable with S hook.

Now because this model does not include a reverse lockout, I highly recommend you equip your trailer with either free backing brakes, that way you can drive in reverse without triggering your trailer's brakes. So again, folks, this is a hydraulic drum brake actuator that mounts on a three by three or a three by four inch straight tongue. It's rated for 7,500 pounds. And again, it fits a two inch ball size, so like I said earlier, this coupler is what's they called over center latch mechanism. So this guy here, you can see it's got a little nub there that you can push your finger on.

It's spring activated, and then that'll let it pop up. You have to pull the safety pin out obviously, I dunno if you kind of heard it pop down, but you obviously saw it pop up. And then once you go back over the ball and latch it, it's gonna pop it down, put the pin back in and you're ready to go. I like this. It's a nice low profile design. It keeps it nice and connected and I think it's just a lot smoother connection point myself. So I kinda like that. Again, the raw finish is nice because then you can paint it after you've primed it and after you've welded in place. Nice two year limited warranty from the manufacturer and it is made here in the us. Folks, I'm Steven. Thanks so much for looking with me today. I hope this information's been helpful, slightly educational maybe, and I do hope that you enjoy your new product. It's a great product by Dexter. I'm Steven again, have a great one.

Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator - Weld On - Drum - 2" Ball - Raw Metal - 7,500 lbs - DX67FR

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (213 Customer Reviews)

Use this actuator to synchronize your trailer brakes with your tow-vehicle brakes. Over-center latch mechanism only engages when the actuator is fully seated on 2" hitch ball. Designed for hydraulic disc brakes and 3x3 or 3x4 straight tongue.

by:

Delivery was very fast. Quality seems very good. Installation was super easy since my Shorelander swing tongue trailer has this standard hole pattern. I love how it looks and the extra foot of distance I get between the boat and my tow vehicle (so less chance of needing to get my feet wet or crawl through the SUV).



by:

Pros.

Works great really noticed
the difference right away.

Ed W. with etrailer was great to work with helped determine which one to get.

It was a fairly simple install.

Con.

The reverse lockout was further away than my original, just a little, so my brake line was too short.

Auto parts places didn't have a flex that fit the thread. I was doing this on a Sunday so I had to drive across town to a trailer guy who was open for a flex line.

I would give it 4.7 stars if I could would of gave a 5 star had they included a short flex line with the kit.

It's about a 2 hour job with everything you need I spent an extra 2+hours getting a part.

All in all been using for a year and I am completely satisfied.



by:

Finished drum to disc brake conversion on my 1993 year model Bass Cat trailer. Installation went smoothly and the UFP-A60 Actuator replaced the obsolete Atwood Actuator. Shortened the outer member a bit and added a 1" flat bar to the bottom for welding of 4" channel trailer frame.



by:

I installed this brake actuator on a 3500 lb boat trailer with drum brakes, is working great so far. Needed to replace the existing broken hitch on my trailer and this was a suitable replacement to get the brakes working again.



by:

Exactly what I needed. Didn't require the outer housing, the insider mechanism slid in nicely as a replacement on my trailer. The etrailer videos for installation and bleeding were very helpful.



by:

We are a trailer repair company. We purchase the actuators for our customers. But we have had a lot of experience dealing with Dexter/UFP products. We try to only buy the best products available for our customers. That is why we buy Dexter/UFP products on a regular basis.

Updating my old surge brake coupler, I really like this Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout - Bolt On - Disc - 2" Ball - Zinc - 7.5K fits 3”x4”trailer tongue, it was easy to install, I did have to drill new holes, I just wish the manufacturer would have included the bolts and the information on how much to torque the bolts to, it’s about “2 drop from my old coupler. etrailer was super fast with shipping !



by:

Shipping was quick and it was packaged nicely. Exact fit for my 2013 single axel Karavan trailer.



by:

Fit was seemless to replace an old actuator with the impossible do get landed hitch latch. Changed brakes from drum to disk, and all new lines. What a difference in smoothness (and effectiveness) while braking. Electric lockout in reverse is also a nice feature. Just plusses all around. If you are replacing the same components be very patient with the bleeding process...it will take some time and a lot of pumping.



by:

Just what I wanted. I am building a custom trailer for my vintage boat. I have used these actuators in past projects. etrailer has great pricing and fast delivery every time.



by:

Have not use the Actuator yet. However it came in a oversize box. No packing material to protect it. It was damaged when I opened the box. Scratches and damage cable



by:

Haven't installed it yet but seems to line up perfectly. Great quality as with all Dexter products. The low profile is slightly shorter than my old style pull down latch.



by:

The product is as expected and an exact replacement for my trailer. The exceptional part of the transaction was the speed my order was filled and shipped.



by:

I’m very satisfied. I always check out etrailer for all my trailer needs and this time was no different. In under 2 hours by myself I changed out the old with the new ( pictures) and ready to bleed the brakes. I always let people know to contact etrailer with there needs. Thanks



by:

Product arrived quickly (as always, thanks etrailer!) bolted direct to my shorelandr trailer without issue. it did not come with the reservoir cover or the manual lockout which was expected given it was a full tongue assembly. Also did not come with the manual (and specifically the spare breakaway clips in case the emergency cord is pulled). Save old lockout and reservoir cap if replacing a busted tongue!



by:

Fantastic product selection excellent customer service



by:

I slipped this into my boat mate trailer for 2001 moomba. Took about an hour to hook up and bleed the system with a buddy. Works great! If you can use simple tools and are mechanically savvy this is a no brainer.



by:

I have not got it on the trailer yet can't wait to use it it looks awesome hope it works as good as it looks



by:

Fit my Karavan trailer well. Though, the top to mounting bolt holes were perfect, the lower holes did not align with the existing holes in the trailer. Had to drill both these through with a 1/2" bit. Then, mounted perfectly. Also, the brake line and blue/white wires hooked right up.



by:

Ordered brake actuator from Etrailer after several attempts from EZTrailee with no response. Wished I had checked out Etrailer sooner. Received notification at each billing, shipping.
It was easy to find the parts got fast shipping with working brakes now, can enjoy the boat again. This is the third trailer you helped me repair with correct parts, fast shipping
Many thanks guys



by:

Item was great. Information was completely helpful to install. Great customer service and support.



by:

Talked to an "expert"...expert recommended this actuator, based on my 3"×5" trailer tubing. Your "experts" need to learn to ask more questions, as i was puzzled as to how to install it...in showing pictures to your ONLINE experts, he suggested a very slightly different product, strangely with the same midel # but different bolt pattern. I am very frustrated with etrailer

Amazing price for my favorite hitch, tongue actuator system made. I own 6 trailers and have had another dozen in the past. There is no better looking or functioning system .



by:

Perfect fit. I had to notch one corner where my wiring came out of the box tubing. Really nice compared to the original that was on there
