Review of Titan Trailer Brakes T4489600


Today we're going to review part #: T4489600. This is the Titan, the Galphorite free backing hydraulic trailer brake assembly for the left hand side of your trailer. This drum brake assembly has a galphorite plating which will deliver superior corrosion protection. The backing plate and the shoe levers are sealed with a permanently bonded electro coat primer, then there's a second coat of rugged acrylic which is applied to the backing plate which makes it virtually rustproof. This is a good application for a marine boat application. The wheel cylinders are treated with a hot black oxide and the internal components are zinc plated and use the stainless steel springs.

The free backing design will let you reverse your trailer without trailer brakes being activated and its designed to be used with hydraulic brake actuators that do not include the reverse lockouts. This is a left hand assembly and the way you can tell that is the shorter shoe, the smaller shoe will face the front of the trailer. The larger or longer shoe will face the rear of the trailer and this, the way you can tell this is a free backing assembly is normally the smaller front shoe will have like a D design shoe pattern. And this is a 12 inch by 2 inch brake assembly and the way to measure that is the diameter would be, across the brake shoes which is 12 inches, the 2 inches would be the width of the brake shoe. This does use a five bolt mounting pattern which means youll want to make sure the brake mounting flange on your trailer axle has the five bolt mounting pattern.

The center hole diameter is 3 1/4 inches and this brake assembly when paired with a right hand side assembly will fit on axles that are rated up to 6000 pounds. This does have a one year warranty and a two year corrosion warranty. And briefly on the free backing design, what that means is that it will let your trailer move in reverse without actuating the brakes and what happens is when you begin backing up the brake shoes are firm against your drum like in any braking situation and as you continue in reverse the shoes will turn with the drum until the lining pressure is released and you're able to back up freely. And that should do it for our review on part #: T4489600.
