Hornery Service Centre boasts home to the BM14200 In-Ground Roller Brake Tester which has proven to be the most accurate testing method available. It tests the performance of a vehicles brake system under stationary and controlled conditions. Your vehicle is driven onto a set of rollers, when tested the wheels are turned by the constant speed of the roller, keeping the vehicle static during the test.
Safest and most Accurate method of Testing Available
It can measure deceleration by means of torque force produced by the decelerations of the wheel against the rollers. This method produces the most consistent results across all axles. It is possible to test one wheel at a time. The roller brake tester has the ability to match prime movers to trailers, maximising vehicle balance and efficiency.
Roller brake testers can test the entire range of every brake fitted to the vehicle from zero to full braking or wheel lock, consistently and repeatedly without the influence of momentum or weight transfer.
Consistent and repeatable results for brake tests on individual wheels to full brake effort or wheel lock up is achieved.
In-Ground Play Detector and Shaker Plates
Our service team is able to check the steering and suspension system of heavy vehicles without the need to jack up the axle. Detect worn kingpin bushings, loose tie-rod ends, broken welds or loose fasteners. Detect failed components quickly, safely and easily using the in-ground play detector.
