Wedge Drum Brakes
Wedge brakes are simply the most powerful of all braking solutions. They can be actuated via hydraulics or by air. The hydraulic system or air actuator forces the plungers outward, stopping the vehicle. Knott wedge drum brakes come in either Simplex or Duplex versions from 410mm to 500mm in diameter and with torques up to 40,000 Nm. Wedge brakes are an efficient solution for off-road construction vehicles. Order from Knott Brake.
