TIP: Re-tighten wheel nuts daily when on rough outback roads. Severe vibrations will cause untightened wheel nuts to sheer off the drum.
The towing capacity of 10″ parallel electric brake drums is 1600kg.
Couplemate Trailer Parts makes 100% Australian Made parallel drums.
What makes Couplemate Electric Brake Drums Different?
Our engineers discovered a little talked about a problem called porosity as a major cause of braking inefficiencies.
Porosity is a series of holes in a casting that causes lower brake shoe adhesion.
In simple terms, a porous surface will have less braking resistance than a non-porous surface.
The best way to explain how to remove air from steel is to understand how air is expelled from concrete. The process of shaking or vibrating the tooling containing a drum casting effectively removes air bubbles, thereby greatly reducing porosity.
Further, during the machining process, our craftsman is on the lookout for the sign of porosity. When found, drums are rejected, scraped and returned to the furnace. As a result, you can be assured the drums you have purchased have undergone rigorous testing and inspecting processes.
Upgrading the electric braking system is a good opportunity to upgrade the existing axle to parallel brakes.
