Al-ko IQ7 and Hydrastar

The Hydrastar 1200psi is suitable for 2.5t boat trailers, Hydrastar 1600psi for heavier tandem trailers up to 4.5t.

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

Why you need Carlisle’s HydraStar brake actuator?

The key component of your trailer braking system is the brake actuator, an electronically-controlled device that forces air 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 main manufacturers. Hydrastar and Al-ko.

If you have a boat trailer, it’s essential to install a good electronic brake actuator. These devices save your trailer, your car, and your 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.

However, the latest Al-ko model has the advantage of a built-in park brake function and has the latest technology in hydraulic electric actuators. The internal compressor activates 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.

You can now use 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, and so did Al-ko—they’ve changed the way the IQ7 works.

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