Horse Drawn Vehicle Brake Components

Horse-drawn vehicle brake parts used in the 7” and 8” PA, Ohio, and Indiana-style Amish buggies and carriages have also been adopted and used by many other carriage builders across the US, Canada, and worldwide.

Please note: the parts specifically marked with the word adjuster will only work on the PA Style Adjuster Brakes. These parts are not made to retrofit traditional non-adjustable brakes. They work with the 7" 3051, and 8" 3050 brake shoes.

These are USA-made parts made and used in the Amish communities.

A note on shipping cost: If you are just needing a small part such as a bolt, nut, or spring please contact us to order, otherwise the shipping calculator is set assuming that several parts will be ordered from this section at the same time.

These replacement parts have very little markup for us, especially when we just sell one item like a bolt and nut. To help defray the time and cost to process, credit card fees, and the labor to pack and transport to the post office, regardless of how much it cost to ship, we do charge a minimum of $12.00 base rate for shipping and handling fees even if it is a small part.

Additional shipping may be required for larger orders. We will let you know if additional shipping will be needed. If you checkout using PayPal we can send you an invoice if needed. Otherwise, we will also need to have credit card information as our system does not store it with the order.
