Drums | Hubs

9-inch | 10-inch | 12-inch Brake Drums

Brake drums are used in the assembly of electric, mechanical and hydraulic brakes.

Problems are easily identified when electric brakes become hot. Hot brakes, hot shoes, and hot magnets are signs of wear.

Brake parts including drums must be replaced, as a result of wear.

Quite often we hear of wheel nuts coming loose on drums and hubs from caravanners on outback roads.

We discovered those caravanners who tightened their nuts every morning had no problem with broken wheel studs.

Those caravanners whose wheels nuts were falling off were suffering damaged and sheered off wheel studs.

The lesson learnt was, when using rough dirt and corrugated roads, include a wheel nut tightening check on your rig each morning.
