sens-a-brake vs actibrake

Has anyone had any experience with the Sens-a-Brake NA-1400 ABS hydraulic trailer brake actuator? I am upgrading to disc brakes and I am considering using it (because of its ABS capabilities) instead of the Actibrake #AB-1-14.

Thanks in advance,
leo

I asked this question a year ago, didn't get much response. I like the quicker response time due to the air accumulator, that's as good a reason as the ABS feature in my opinion.

Did you get actually get the Sens-a-brake? If so, how do you like it?

Check out Towbrake

I like the unit made by Towbrake the best of all the ones I've seen. It's the unit I plan to use on my rig after the rebuild.

This unit is not a pump, but rather a large linear actuator pushing the piston of a normal automotive master cylinder. I like this design.

Check out their website (towbrake.com). It's very informative.

As well, here is a link to the "Trailer Life" article that I've mentioned on the forums here in the past.
