The 18″ Brake Kit For Big Wheel Baggers Has Arrived

HHI-BF18-BrakeHawg Halters Inc, a.k.a. HHI, one of the leaders in braking systems, is launching a brake kit (disc and brake) conceived for Bagger tall wheels. Objective is of course to offer the correct disc size and the right number of pistons to slow and stop these big wheels equipping big machines (above 21″ to very soon 32″ tall)

This new 6-piston differential bore caliper for 18″ diameter rotors is the first direct bolt on, purpose-built caliper for the “Big Wheel Bagger” market. The kit includes both the disc and the brake re-designed with larger pads to increase overall braking performance.

The 18″ Hawg Halters (HHI) Big Brake Kit is ready to ship in raw, polished, chrome and black anodized finishes and will be available soon in different colors. MSRP of this new offering is $599.00 for the caliper, and $1398.00 for the BFB-18  caliper and true floating brake rotor kit. More info at Hawg Halters, 877-442-5837 or

    I was pretty sure Glenndyne already had this out? A little different brake setup when it comes to calipers….

    Looking at the design of the radial “spokes” I need to ask why would you have the thin section near the hub where the bending moment is greatest and wider on the outside where it’s the least? Otherwise, neat looking parts. I just hope they did some stress analysis when they designed it.

    Lyle Landstrom,on a big disc you want the flex and slight warping well away from the friction surface.Braking stress is transferred through all spokes and not just one.From a stress,heat warping and flex engineering design standpoint it looks just fine to me.

    How big is big enough ????

    Yeah but shear force and bending moment are closest to the hub where there’s less material.

    Lyle Landstrom,some OEM H-D discs have used a similar (though not identical) thin curved inner spoke design for years now.They work fine.
