Dexter Axle Brake Actuator - DX33FR

  • Surge Brake Actuator
  • Drum Brakes
  • 2 Inch Ball Coupler
  • 7500 lbs GTW
  • Bolt-On
  • No Lockout
  • Straight Tongue Coupler
  • Dexter Axle

Use this corrosion-resistant 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 drum brake applications.


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
  • Zinc plating offers excellent corrosion resistance
  • Bolt-on installation
  • Manual lockout kit included
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: hydraulic drum brakes
  • Ball size: 2"
  • Mounting holes positioned 3/4" down
  • Mounting: straight, 3" wide trailer 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.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


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.

Review from a similar DX7.5L in Brake Actuator


I received my order two days ago, Quick shipping but it was the wrong part. I called and spoke with Noah who sent me an email asking me to take a picture of the part and add my phone number. I did right a way and still have not heard back. I emailed Noah today asking about the status no reply, now Im on a 9min hold to try and talk with someone about my replacement past. The wrong part looks like a good part if it fit my trailer.


Comments
Mark, Im sorry Noah didnt reply to you in a timely manner. We will get this taken care of and send out the correct part.

The product is exactly what I ordered and it was shipped quickly. Only problem is it is missing the upper cap to cover the brake fluid reservoir. I did call Customer Service and they said they would send one ASAP. The photo online shows it is included with the product. I’m waiting on receiving it.

This product doesn’t fit over 3” tongue. Its the exact same size as a 3” tongue.Unusable. Had to remove the internal portion and modify my trailer tongue to fit. Arrived as the worst packaged item I’ve ever received. It was barely still in the box. Whom ever packaged this didn’t have a clue what they were doing.

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Brake Actuator

  • Front of Housing to Edge of Fill Cap Dimension of Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuating Coupler
    The front of the housing to the edge of the fill cap closest to the front of the coupler is 7-7/8 inches, as shown in the provided photo. You'd be better off mounting the sticker on the top or side of the trailer tongue behind the actuating coupler. You wouldn't want to apply the sticker over the junction between the housing and the portion of the actuator that modes, as it would destroy your sticker.

  • Does the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator Have a Lockout
    The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator part # DX33FR comes with a manual lockout key for reversing. That said, if you would like for this to be done automatically you can simply add an electric lockout, the Solenoid Valve part # T4748800. That said, you'll also need a 5-way on the trailer and vehicle for this so if you don't already have one I recommend the Hopkins Endurance 5-Way Flat Trailer Wiring Kit part # HM47890. The Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator is made in the USA.

  • Can Dexter Drum Actuator have Electric Reverse Lock Out Added It
    Dexter doesn't put reverse lock outs on their drum brake actuators so you'd need to add the part # DM5404 do a new actuator. The part # DX97FR is just the inner section of an actuator though. For the actuator you'd need the part # DX33FR.

  • Can Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Actuator DX56FR Replace Older Titan Aero 6000?
    As long as your trailer has a 3" x 5" trailer tongue then the Dexter DX7.5L A-60 Brake Actuator w Electric Lockout # DX56FR will replace your Titan Aero 6000 Coupler. Keep in mind this actuator is designed for disc brakes, so if you have drum brakes this will not work for you. If your trailer has drum brakes you will need the # DX33FR instead. I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • What Alternate Brake Actuator Can I Substitute for My Dico Aero 6000 Brake Actuator?
    I have a solution for you that will work as a replacement. Unfortunately, we do not carry the correct replacement shock T4502000 for your Dico Aero 6000 actuator because it has been discontinued from production. I went ahead and reached out to Dexter axle (the makers of the Dico Aero 6000), and they said that, sadly, the only thing to do would be to replace the actuator itself. I know that this can be frustrating to hear, but the good news is that we do have some great options. For a...
