Bradley MH35 damper


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a UK source for a replacement damper for a Bradley MH35 coupling, the type used on Sankey trailers (the damper is possibly the same for the Penman, but the Penman coupling doesn't have the manual reverse lockout)? The damper appears to be a STABILUS 637041.

Googling only reveals one source, in Belgium, at a price of well over 300 Euros, and not in stock anyway. One could buy a complete Sankey trailer for that price!

I find it hard to believe that there is nowhere in the UK with these available, and it seems a shame to scrap a whole coupling simply due to a failed damper.

I have contacted Bradley, who sadly remain more useless than a very useless thing and simply deny ever making these coupling, despite me supplying photos of the coupling, makers plate, part number and NSN. Seldom have I encountered such uselessness!
