Great for Commercial Horse-Drawn Vehicles

Try our hydraulic brakes for smooth, easy stops. These drum brakes require very little maintenance. Complete brake system includes master cylinder and pedal. We recommend this system for hitchwagons and wagons for commercial use.

(Hydraulic brakes are made to fit wood spoke wheels with roller-bearing hubs only. They are not designed to fit old-style Sarven hubs with riveted flanges or pneumatic hubs and wheels.)

If you would like some reference material on installing cable and hydraulic brakes the book Wheelwrighting: A Modern Introduction Vol II is a great resource!
