Disc Braked Marine Axle Kits

A boat trailer launches, carries and retrieves a boat from the water. Two kinds of boat trailers exist—commercial hydraulic and self-propelled. Generally, marinas, boat haulers, and boat builders use commercial hydraulic trailers. However, this kind isn’t the best choice if you are trying to store a boat.

If the brakes of your boat trailer to fail, your planned adventure will come to a screeching halt.

A simple brake failure doesn’t have to end your trip though. Couplemate can help you avoid this, by delivering marine braked axle kits, anywhere in Australia. All you have to do is get online or give us a call. You can expect the axle kits to reach you as soon as humanly possible.

Why Braked Marine Axle Kits

When upgrading a boat trailer that weighs over 750kg, you’ll need braked marine axle kits. You can find these—and any other trailer or caravan spare parts you need—at Couplemate.

Safety Is Key

Underweight braked marine axle kits are a real problem for boat trailers. If you’ve ever noticed an axle vibrating as the trailer speeds down the highway, you’ll need to consider an upgrade.

A vibrating axle means that you’re experiencing something called vibration fatigue. No, this isn’t restricted to aircraft. This fatigue causes springs to age prematurely, shackle bolts and shackle plates to fail, and even nuts and bolts inside your engine to come loose.

Vibrations occur when your boat trailer axle is either too wide or overloaded. In either case, you’ll need to pick a larger axle as a replacement.

How to fix Dangerous Caravan Vibration Fatigue

Axles for boat trailers are usually galvanised so you don’t end up with a rusty axle, but you can save a few dollars using a coat of primer instead. Either way, you’ll need galvanised rotors and calipers on all boat trailers up to 4500kg. With such trailers, you’ll be using hydraulic brakes with electric hydraulic controllers.

Just select the kit you need to repair your boat trailer axle, we’ll deliver it to you wherever you are down under.
