Trailer Accessories

Sauber Mfg. offers several different trailer accessories to address our customer’s specific needs. Our products include: anti-lock brake systems, turret parts, all-weather wheel chocks, and many more.

Anti-Lock Brake System

Anti-lock brakes greatly enhance trailer stability while braking. Because a sliding wheel always leads, a brake lockup situation under manual braking can cause loss of control as the trailer slides sideways. Anti-lock brakes provide the electronic and physical control to prevent wheel lockup and the ensuing control problems. Although Anti-lock brakes may not necessarily help your operators stop over shorter ...

Almag Stabilizers

Experience shows that outriggers are seldom worn out; typically, they are torn off during transit because they are not convenient to fully elevate. These stabilizers feature a bronze latch that involves a simple swing action to lock into the stepped positions on the Almag shaft. Other suppliers often weld the unit to the trailer making replacement a costly job. Because our ...

Solar Battery Box

The breakaway and battery modules are often the most neglected element of trailer electrical systems. Because many breakaway devices are never called into use, it's easy to understand why it might be overlooked. Section 393.43 of the Federal Code states that a breakaway system ". . . shall be provided to maintain application of the brakes on the trailer in such ...

Hubodometers

For utility fleet purposes, many states allow "mileage" plates which can lower licensing costs. Recording trailer miles makes sense from a maintenance and asset utilization standpoint. Designed specifically for the utility fleet trailer, our hubodometer is hermetically sealed and won't crack and lose oil like conventional plastic caps. It records mileage in both directions. The Almag housing provides rust free ...

Rust-Proof Stanchions

Our bronze and galvanized stanchions for Pole Trailers provide a convenient way to position poles. Each is equipped with an over-center, variable tension, cam lock assembly. Because they are completely non-rusting, they won't seize to the bolsters like old-fashioned stanchions can.

Pole Muzzle

Our galvanized pole muzzles provide a convenient method for connecting the lead pole to the towing vehicle. This unit includes safety chains and two methods for securing it to your wooden poles.  Self-locking, worm drive winches with heavy duty 4" straps are provided along with holes to allow attachment using customer provided crossarm bolts.  Several styles are available.

Hitch Extension

Our fully adjustable hitch extension is cast from steel and can be rotated for additional height options. It allows the trailer tongue to clear tow vehicle encumbrances like steps and tailshelves. We use only grade 8, North American certified bolts for attachment. 2.5" and 3.0" ID hitches available separately.

Safety Chains

Chain traps secure chain at two links for ultimate holding power. Our unique method of installation doesn't require connecting links, fasteners or welding of the chain, compromising its integrity. Chain trap and complete galvanized chain assemblies available.  

Socket Housing

The strong Almag housing that secures your socket system provides electrical wiring with a non-rusting and secure environment for years of hard labor. Specify plug type when ordering. Also available with dual connection option.

Reel Frames

We can develop kits to retrofit your existing flatbed truck or trailer configurations so that you can line up the reel to the work, not the whole vehicle. Our turrets lock on 15 degree intervals and rotate fully loaded with less than 10 pounds of force. A cost effective alternative to a new trailer purchase.

EZ-Lube Hubs

  Preface : Greasing standard axle bearings necessitates completely disassembling the hub. This requires removing the wheel, prying the metal grease cap off, and removing the cotter pin, spindle nut and hub. This process is time consuming, increases fleet main - tenance costs and introduces possible re-assembly variances.   E-Z Lube Standard On Sauber Trailers We are now including E-Z Lube hubs from Dexter as standard equipment on ...

Electric Brake System

Check the trailer brake lights by having someone operate the brake and turn signals on the tow vehicle while you visually verify it is functioning.  If your trailer has electric brakes, your tow vehicle will have an electric brake controller that is required to be installed at the driver's position that sends power to the brakes. To check the condition ...
