Video Transcript for Dexter Axle Trailer Brakes - Disc Brakes - K71-647-648 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Dexter Ecoat Never Lube Disc Kit to 12 inch rotor and the hub with the six on five and a half inch bolt pattern for a 6,000 pound axles. Now these trailer brake assemblies make it very easy to upgrade from drum brake to disc brakes for better performance. It gives you more consistent stopping even at highway speeds and dramatically shorter stopping distances and it's easier and less expensive to maintain.All these parts have a nice Ecoat finish to them to provide corrosion resistance to freshwater and limited saltwater use. The kit will include everything show here on the table. It is two full brake assemblies for one axle. Includes the two Ecoated rotors, the two Ecoated hubs with the bolts pressed in, two of the Ecoated duct tile iron calipers with the four semi metallic brake pads and the two Ecoated caliper mounting brackets with the bolts and nuts to install it, the two never lube bearing cartridges which are already installed in the hubs, and the two grease caps.Now the rotors, they are a vented rotor which will help regulate temperature to prevent overheating.

They'll dissipate the heat. The hubs which are included, they will replace your existing hubs. What's nice on these hubs, they include the never lube bearings which are already pre lubricated and pressed into the hubs at the factory. They are sealed bearings. They include the seals, the inner and outer races.

So there's no need to replace the seal when checking your brakes and no need to lubricate the bearings.The cartridge is a never lube bearing cartridge, size 42 millimeters. The calipers, they are self adjusting calipers which ensure maximum surface contact for smooth equal braking. They do come with the semi-metallic brake pad to help resist heat, provide excellent grip. The mounting brackets that the calipers attach to, they are a duct tile iron mounting bracket. Provide strength and durability.Now to install this kit it does require a hydraulic brake actuator and brake lines to activate the brakes.

We do sell those separately on our website and they are usually listed on this product page as a related project. The thing you do want to make sure is the brake actuator and the brake lines will require at least 1600 PSI rating. These parts are made in the U.S.A. Again, they're designed to fit axles of 6000 pounds. The wheel size that'll fit on this is 15 inch, 16 inch and 16 1/2 inch wheels.

The bolt pattern on the hub is a six on five and a half inch bolt pattern. The wheel lug diameter is a half inch. The rotor diameter is going to be 12 inches and the brake phalange configuration for installing this onto the brake phalange of your axle is a five bolt brake phalange configuration.If you notice, it does come with all the hardware you need to install everything. That should do it for the review on the Dexter Ecoat Never Lube Disc Brake Kit. 12 inch rotor and the hub with the six on five and a half inch bolt pattern for 6000 pound axles.

Ask the Experts about this Dexter Axle Trailer Brakes

  • Do Dexter and Kodiak Disc Brake Kits Use Same Mounting Brackets
    The mounting brackets of the Kodiak kit like the # K2R526D and the Dexter kit part # K71-647-648 locate the caliper relative to the hub in a slightly different position as well as use different bolt hole dimensions. Because of this the two kits aren't compatible with each other. The Dexter is much more offset towards the axle than the Kodiak, but that doesn't necessarily mean one is better than the other. Both of these brands do things differently but have a great reputation as being very...

  • Will Replacement Disc Brake Piston K71-630 for Dexter Axle 8K Caliper Fit 6K Caliper
    I reached out to my contact at Dexter Axle and confirmed that the 1-7/8 inch diameter Replacement Disc Brake Piston # 054-093-00 is in fact used on both the 8,000 lb Dexter calipers # K71-630 as well as the 6,000 lb Dexter calipers # K71-636-00, so this will work well to replace the pistons on your Dexter Disc Brake Kit # K71-647-648 (Nev-R-Lube) or # K71-638-639 (standard). If you also need to replace the piston seals, you can use part # K71-670-00, which also includes the dust boots,...
