Commercial Vehicle Brake Testing 2020

March 18th, 2020 Comments off

HGV Brake Testing Top Of TC’s Agenda For 2020


England’s Commercial Vehicle traffic commissioners report emphasising the importance of competent #brake #testing procedures for heavy vehicles.

Acknowledging that operators had been investing in roller brake testing, the TCs were pleased to note that this was improving brake performance at annual test.

“In 2017/18, there were almost 10,000 fewer failures for service brake performance at commercial vehicle annual tests than in 2013/14,” said the report.

“The biggest improvement we have seen is for trailers – in the same period, an extra 5,500 passed their brake performance test the first time.” However, while the TCs praised these “really encouraging” results, they insisted that there was “more to achieve” – not least because “brake failures are still dominating the top ten reasons for MOT failure”. There were 22,000 failures for service brake performance in 2017/18; and the TCs highlighted a range of commonly recurring issues relating to brake tests. One such issue was that of periodic maintenance inspection (PMI) brake checks being conducted on unladen vehicles and trailers with wheels locking at very low brake efforts; another was test printouts saying ‘pass’ where it was clear one or more brakes were not working properly. Operators and transport managers failing to understand the information on the printout was a further bugbear, as was the issue of technicians conducting brake tests failing to identify potential serious safety concerns. TCs also highlighted a general failure to grasp that the standards applied at PMIs should actually be higher than minimum annual test requirements.

Also, there are a great number of commercial workshops who are still of the misconception that all of the aforementioned brake tests have to be performed on a roller brake tester. This is not the case! The Traffic Commission has allowed the use of a DVSA-approved brake tester, like a decelerometer / BrakeCheck, for all non-MOT brake tests.

2020 The Year For Truck Auto Braking


2020 is the Year Of The Back Stop!

BackStop Trailer & Truck Automatic Braking Reversing System is a modern hi tech reversing aide for commercial rigid trucks and trailers.

The BackStop system is an attractive product for transport managers to improve health & safety standards.

Reversing is often the cause of vehicle damage or human injury. Fines have been issued to transport operators for employee injury and high costs in repairs for simple low speed reversing incidents. One incident in 2011 when an employee received crush injuries cost the UK transport operator a total of £15,000 in fines and costs.

BackStop automatically applies the brakes when an object such as a concrete pillar or a person becomes an obstruction, or is in close proximity to the rear of the vehicle. activating only when the vehicle is in reverse and continuously monitoring at a distance up to 3m behind the vehicle, BackStop (Truck Braking While Reversing Product) will automatically apply the brakes if any of the sensors detect an obstacle, leaving sufficient time for a person to move or the vehicle realigned.

So contact us to discuss if Back Stop can reduce reversing damage for your fleet in 2020! – 0115 8456471 or info@aideautomotive.com

HGV Fuel Theft, A Problem Over The Festive Period

HGV Fuel Theft, A Problem Over The Festive Period


Fuel theft from commercial vehicles is a common problem over the festive period, because vehicles are left idle while firms close down for the Christmas Break. This makes them a lucrative target for thieves looking to syphon fuel from the vehicles.

Here at aide automotive we’ve found that for this reason sales of our fuel theft devices have increased in the run up to Christmas, quoted Matt Burke Sales Director,

“We always see an increase in sales of our fuel theft devices in the weeks before Christmas. Most companies want to protect their vehicles from thieves looking to syphon off fuel whilst a business is closed down and nobody is on the premises. We have a range of anti-siphon devices that have the perfect solution for this problem. Investing in one of these devices allows business owners the chance to relax and enjoy the Christmas break, safe in the knowledge that their vehicles are protected from fuel theft.”

An Truck Fuel Theft Prevention device is extremely cost effective, for a small investment it could save a company thousands in terms of stolen fuel and vehicle downtime.

Anti Fuel Theft Devices are relatively cheap to purchase and capable of withstanding regular and prolonged use.

Stop Fuel Theft.

•Give the Truck Owner Piece Of Mind
•Prevent Pipes Entering the Truck Tank
•Prevents Easy Fuel Theft
•Savings off A fuel bills

Trailer Diagnostics In Transport Engineer Publication


aide automotive’s Code Talk Trailer Diagnostics was featured in the Transport Engineer magazine’s website, the homepage for transport engineers and fleet managers, brought to you by the IRTE Professional Sector of SOE and MA Business.

Code Talk trailer diagnostics interface to cover Wabco TEBS E Code Talk, the hand-held trailer diagnostics fro Doctor Air Brake for trailer repairers looking after older ABS and new EBS systems, now covers Wabco TEBS E.

Distributor aide automotive says its diagnostics handset communicates with a trailer’s ECU, reading and clearing ABS/EBS fault codes on Wabco, Knorr Bremse and Haldex systems. Trailer workshops can eliminate fault finding by reading the ECU codes to determine where a fault lies, says aide’s Matthew Burke – making the point that being able to clear historic codes is invaluable during service and inspection.

The system now interfaces to: Haldex EBS Generation 1, 2 and 3; Wabco TEBS E and D; and Knorr Bremse EBS Gen 1. Code Talk also acts as a remote control for the TrailerCheck product range, providing information on lighting wires, voltages and pin out information via the display. “Future updates will cover newer systems and with no annual software fee,” says Matthew Burke.
