45mm Round Hydraulic Disc Brake Axle Kit is used in saltwater where electric brakes are unsuitable.
Hydraulic Disc Brakes are used on tandem trailers that are over 2000kg and used in conjunction with a hydraulic/electric controller system.
Axles are made using Australian steel and assembled in Australian.
This 45mm Round, Hydraulic Disc Brake Axle Kit, consists:-
- 45mm Round Axle rated @ 1450kg
- 2 X Galvanised Hydraulic Calipers + Disc Pads + Mounting Bolts.
- Anchor Plates Welded on Axle.
- 2 x Galvanised Disc Rotors + Japanese Bearings + Nuts.
- Note: Galvanised Axle is an optional extra
Add master cylinder and bracket if required. 3/4″ for single axle, 7/8″ cylinder for tandem setups.
How do I calculate the Face to Face measurement on my Hydraulic Disc Brake axle?
Measure the wheel and tyre offset.
The offset is the distance between the inside of the hub on the rim and the outside of the rubber.
Add 50mm or the distance between the rubber and the chassis.
Multiply by 2 for two sides and then add your chassis width.
We get a lot of calls about Hydraulic Disc Brake caliper adjustment.
From time to time, the Hydraulic Disc Brake caliper piston can become dirty from road dirt and require a good clean.
If this is the case, remove the Hydraulic Disc Brake shoes and then carefully remove the piston and piston rubber boot.
Clean the piston and housing with warm, clean soapy water.
Replace the rubber boot or piston if it is showing signs of wear and tear.
Reinstall the piston and boot into the Hydraulic Disc Brake cylinder.
Use a ‘G’ clamp or similar tool to push the piston home to enable the hydraulic pads to insert correctly over the disc rotor.
Bleed the entire system to remove air bubbles.
Do not forget to leave your phone number at checkout.
We will call you to verify your length of the axle and check your measurements to ensure we get it right the first time.
If we make a mistake, we will fix our mistake at our cost.
