Hydrastar XL<sup>®</sup>Take Control of your trailer brakes with Cargo’s Hydrastar XL® trailer brake actuators.

Don’t be worried about stopping your trailer.
Let a Cargo trailer brake actuator and communicator give you more stopping power.

  • Patented system “senses” the amount of braking effort required and provides for a smooth, safe stop. Communicator plugs into tow vehicle’s cigarette lighter, and normally needs no special wiring to control the trailer mounted actuator
  • Vastly superior to surge brakes…eliminates feel of being pushed by trailer downhill, and problems with backing a trailer uphill or downhill.
  • Ideal for rental fleets or shared trailers… need to change tow vehicles? Just move the communicator

    and many other loads
