Mechanical Drum

Mechanical drum brakes are popular in European markets and make up a significant number of trailer brakes here in Australia. Mechanical brakes are very simplistic in operation and maintenance which makes them a great alternative to electric or hydraulic brakes when they are preferred or needed due to circumstance. It is however very important to understand the requirements of the actuating system behind their operation, in particular the amount of force to activate and equalization of force (center pull).
