Mechanical Drum Brakes

Mechanical drum brakes are used for applications where simplicity and robust components are required.
The most popular method of operation is using cables. Reference to mechanical centre pull requires steel brake rods to be supplied and when fitted to an axle a load equalizer mechanism must be used.
Note: AL-KO recommends actuation of our mechanical forward pull lever brake is from the bottom of the brake.

When selecting mechanical brakes, the required maximum input load must be considered. When using power assisted
mechanical brakes, request advice from your local AL-KO branch to select the correct power unit capacity and also
about fitting brake equalizer and Pressed Mount Plate Machined Mount Plate brake rods
