HGV / Truck Brake Tester

May 12th, 2022 Comments off

Brake Testers Like #BrakeCheck are great tools to test #brakes & demonstrate their efficiency for both the #truck & the trailer, but it won’t allow you to test each individual #wheel. To identify which wheel is defective you’ll also need to use a tool such as “Infra Red Temp Gun”

Trailer Light Tester “TCheck Super Start”

January 18th, 2021 Comments off
24 Volt HGV Trailer Tester
Low Cost HGV Light Electrical Tester

TCheck Super Start is an ideal low cost effective test gauge to quickly determine the electrical integrity of an EBS/ ABS braking system plus a full lighting check.

Installed into a fitters fleet support van, this product completes to kit required to test and inspect 24 volt HGV trailers.

Individual light circuit switches and EBS CAN line test with the Warning light via the face panel, TCheck Super Start show power supply voltage & supplied supplied with detachable Susie cables.

Using a tractor unit to carry out a trailer test is not as effective as the TrailerCheck as the tractor unit is not guaranteed to be a 100% working unit, TrailerCheck is!

TCheck Super Start eliminates the indecision and confirms the trailer’s fault. Additionally when servicing or prepping trailers there maybe no space to hook a tractor unit up.

Tapley Bowmonk Meter

The Old Mechanical Brake Tester Tapley Now Retired As DVSA Say A Print Out Required

For almost 100 years Tapley brake testers have been the market leading portable brake testing equipment.

Results of Tapley Brake meter tests have been accepted as evidence of braking efficiency in Courts of Law throughout the world.

But now it seems the Tapley Brake Tester may well be retired in the UK, recent guidance from the DVSA now says a brake test must be printed for inspection records.

Decelerometers have moved on significantly from the old mechanical brake testers such as Tapley Decelerometer. Being electronic BrakeCheck has a much higher accuracy and additional information such as average deceleration, a left/right pull measurement, speed at braking and stopping distance. All tests are time and date stamped.

Contact aide automotive to discuss the recent DVSA brake testing guidance and BrakeCheck. – Call 0115 8456471

MOT Brake Tester

MOT Tapley Brake Meter

Truck Brake Efficiency Tester

June 18th, 2014 Comments off

DVSA Recommend 4 Brake Tests Per Year!!

Document :Guide to maintaining road worthiness
Commercial goods and passenger carrying vehicles (Revised 2014)

Section 5: Safety inspection and repair facilities

Extract –
“Therefore it is normally expected that the vehicle or trailer should complete at least three successful brake efficiency tests spread throughout year in addition to the annual MOT test.”

BrakeCheck is a portable brake tester that works from the principle of measuring deceleration or Brake Efficiency, BrakeCheck has been proved to be a good indication of brake performance and cost effective for any workshop. Over 15,000 BrakeCheck’s have been purchased since it’s introduction in January 2003, and is now a standard tool for any vehicle workshop.

In addition to BrakeCheck Standard which is marketed towards Car, Van Truck and Bus / Coaches, BrakeCheck For Truck &Trailers is ideal for trailer operating companies.

aide automotive also recommend the use of an Infra Red Thermometer to check individual wheels via temperature. This in conjunction with a decelerometer print out would be the perfect 3 times a year brake test for any commercial vehicle.
