The Alko boat trailer brake actuator ensures the trailer’s brakes operate simultaneously with the brakes on your tow vehicle. As a result, they are preventing the dangerous ‘jack-knifing’ skid effect.

The latest Al-ko model has the advantage of a built-in park brake function and the latest hydraulic electric actuator technology.

The internal compressor activates the brakes when parked. The park feature is automatic. If you’re leaving your boat trailer unattended for long periods, it is still wiser to chock all wheels.

Why do you need a Hydrastar brake actuator?

The critical component of your trailer braking system is the brake actuator, an electronically-controlled device that forces hydraulic oil into the brakes to slow down the trailer along with the vehicle and avoid tailgating and trailer slippage.

The electrically-driven Hydraulic brakes market has two leading manufacturers. Hydrastar and Al-ko.

If you have a boat trailer, installing an excellent electronic brake actuator is essential. These devices save your caravan, car, and boat, all the things that cost a lot of money.
Hydrastar Boat Trailer Brake Actuator — Some Further Info
You’ll need to install a manual park brake and a breakaway kit if you use the Hydrastar electric actuator.

You can now use the most popular brake controllers on the IQ7. In the past, you’d have had to purchase a brake controller mounted on your foot pedal. I always thought it was a bad idea, as did Al-ko—they’ve changed how IQ7 works.

Currently, Al-ko offers excellent pricing on the IQ7 actuator. You will not find a better time to buy advanced brake equipment from Al-ko.
