As heavy truck stopping distance regulations have become stricter, Air Disc Brakes are becoming more common on over the road rigs. The Heavy Vehicle Technology Program has added an Air Disc Brake system trainer to ensure students receive up to date training on these new systems. The ConsuLab HV-126 DISC Trainer includes a heavy-duty disc with air chamber. Using shop air, the service and parking brakes can be applied, the brake system can be dismantled, adjusted, and the brakes can be measured. The trainer includes a sectional cutaway showing the bearings and bearing races.
