Comparing the HydraStar Hydraulic Actuator and the Titan BrakeRite Hydraulic Actuator


Im interested in the hydrastar and brakerite electric over hydraulic actuators. I couldnt find any publication on brakerites performance nor where its made. Hydrastar and brakerite both claim to have the fastest response time. Obviously they both arent the best. Do you have an publications on brakerites response times? Ive seen you guys post on youre QandA that each is the fastest response times. So Im highly confused lol I have no interest in the Dexter unit. I am concerned that hydrastar is the only one that states the their unit can over heat if youre sitting too long with your foot on the brake! Any actual proof which one is the fastest? Im leaning towards the hydrastar as its US made and a two year warranty. I did see brakerite had circuit board issues about 3 to 5 years ago. Any help you can provide to help me with my decision? Thanks, Earl
