Kodiak Hydraulic disc brakes
I saw a display of the system at the 2004 International and was intrigued. It is a hydraulic disc system that bolts on to the standard duratorque axle.
The sales guy said they sell through distribution/installers but I was curious and thought I would post what I can find on it for those that are considering a replacement on the either the vac u brakes that are OEM or installing a new set of axles and want the stopping power offered by a disc brake system. I have no affiliation with the company, just have always been intrigued.
The First tidbit:
A substitute for the Kodiak disc brakes pads can be found in most auto parts stores. The substitute pad is for the 1982-1992 Chevy Cavalier, Part# D289
The second is that the system is not new. The Kodiak system has been being used on heavy boat trailers with a surge head for years. So the only new thing is the power head.
