Drum Compatibility

To ensure optimum braking, drums should always be replaced as a set on an axle and with compatible components. Brake compatibility means that each brake on each wheel will perform equally, doing its fair share of the work, to effectively produce a balanced and controlled stop. Proper matching of brake assemblies will result in:

  • Maximum stopping performance
  • Longer service life between overhauls
  • Lower maintenance costs
