Disc Brakes

Hydraulic ABS and 15-inch Bosch® Pin-Slide Disc Brakes

Hydraulic ABS disc brakes are built to make stopping heavier loads easier with increased heat resistance and decreased brake fade and wear. They deliver reliable, uniform stopping power and better steering control during emergency situations. The pin-slide design reduces maintenance time, keeping your vehicles on the road longer. For heavy-duty applications, choose the MT-55 with optional air brakes for even greater stopping power.
