What brake issues are you experiencing?
As stated earlier, heavy equipment brake problems can occur at any time because of how hard they are used on a daily basis. While there is a whole list of preventative measures that the operator can take to prolong the life of their brake systems, things can happen out there on the job. In order to repair your brake system properly, it is essential that the problems are diagnosed properly. At Quality Truck & Tire, we have the specialized diagnostic software and the experienced technicians that are necessary to pinpoint the issues that our clients are having with their heavy on road equipment brakes. While there is an entire list of brake problems that can arise, more commonly, timing or balance issues will be present.
Most heavy duty trucks have braking systems that are supposed to apply and release in order with the rear brakes first followed by the front. This is a braking system commonly seen on tractor-trailers. When tractor brakes apply first, or with more force, the trailer could bump against the tractor, causing stability problems, or at least causing the tractor brakes to do more of their share of the work in stopping the truck. In this case, if the trailer brakes aren't releasing as quickly as they should, it could compromise control in a skid. This instance would be considered a brake timing problem.
In an ideal situation, all of the wheels on your heavy duty on road equipment will share the load of the braking. This would be considered a well-balanced braking system. Sometimes however, balance issues can occur due to mismatched air fittings or hoses, a malfunctioning brake actuator, or even kinks in the hoses or blockages in the valves. If you were to notice your truck pulling distinctly to the one side or the other, this can indicate that you have a balance problem in your braking system.
