The brake tester is used to measure components of the braking system and ensure everything is working correctly – it measures the following; Ovality, Bind, Braking Efficiency which equates to a percentage and following guidelines will tell the operator whether the braking system is working correctly or not.

Commercial brake testing is part of the annual MOT test for vehicles and is one of the most common reasons for vehicles failing on MOT’s. DVSA have also released publication in November 2018 that emphasises the importance of regular brake testing in the UK – you can read more of this here.

The Everquip brake tester measures the following braking procedures;

  • Service brake
  • Secondary brake
  • Park brake

Dependent on whether the tyres lock out or achieve the correct kgf percentage will denote whether a vehicle passes or fails, unless it is a tri-axle semi-trailer which then has to also meet the ULTAST testing requirements to ensure a pass result.

Commercial brake testing equipment is a capital expenditure, but dependent on the number of vehicles you’re testing and how far the local test centre is – a commercial brake tester can be smart investment. For more information on how quickly you can break even on a commercial brake tester please visit our blog.
