Heavy-duty brakes are incredibly important, for they’re responsible for bringing thousands of pounds worth of cargo to a stop. Unlike passenger cars, heavy-duty trucks use compressed air to activate their brakes. Most are drum brake style and are activated when compressed air enters the initial service chamber. Over time, these components can wear out and may need to be repaired or maintained. One prominent example is your brake adjusters. They’re responsible for taking up slack automatically, but they can become uncalibrated and need to be adjusted by a certified mechanic. At Chuck’s Truck Service Centre, we’ve got you covered across every avenue of your heavy-duty brake system.

Heavy Duty Brake Repairs Including Adjusters & Air Dryers

Common Brake System Issues

Brake Adjuster Issues

Your brake adjusters are designed to automatically take up slack as your brake pads wear down. Although they’re generally quite durable, they can come out of alignment and fail to adequately take up the slack. If this happens, you’ll likely notice that it takes longer to brake, for your air system has to push your pushrod significantly farther before it can activate your drum brakes. 

Air Dryer Failure

The compressed air that activates your brakes goes through an air dryer before it actually enters your brake system. If your air dryer fails or malfunctions, the moisture won’t be removed from your system. This makes your brakes less effective, causes excessive wear and tear, and may even cause critical air leaks. If you’re having this problem, be sure to give us a call and set up an appointment.
