American Boat Trailer Parts | Dee Maxx | Kodiak
American boat trailer parts and accessories stocked by Couplemate include stainless disc rotors, bearings, seals, dust caps, bearing buddies and more – which are often hard to come by in the Australian market.
In many cases, Kodiak and Deemaxx calipers, caliper disc pads and rotors are technically the same, so ask our experts if you are looking at brand swapping.
Imported boats require conversion to suit Australian compliance inspections.
Couplemate prefers the stainless braided line due to the extra protection provided by the stainless braid.
How Disc Brakes Work
So how exactly do American disc brakes work on these boats? How are they different from Australian boat brakes?
USA rotors are thicker (22m) with a max bearing capacity of 1.6t.
As a result of thicker disc rotor size, American calipers are not interchangeable with Australian Hydraulic Calipers.
Couplemate is one of Australia’s leading stockists of American Deemaxx and Dexter brands.
