Always ensure that the vehicle is securely chocked on level ground before releasing the parking brake. Cage the spring brake or use a minimum hold off pressure of 90 psi (6 bar).

Maint intro

Regular brake inspection is an important part of vehicle maintenance and should take place every 3 months.

These check frequencies are a minimum and, depending on the vehicle application, a more frequent check may be necessary. Refer also to vehicle manufacturer’s instructions with regard to check frequencies and service intervals for brake calipers, brake pads, brake discs and air chambers.
