Depending on the type of application, for a high standard of safety we equip the trucks either with disc brakes, a combination of disc and drum brakes or drum brakes. In addition to the proven, electronic braking systems with disengageable ABS, ASR, Brake Assist and hill holder, powerful, wear-free engine brakes feature as standard to provide added safety.
The prime movers are fitted as standard with the wear-free continuous High Performance Engine Brake1. This three-stage brake system offering up to 475 kW of brake power reduces wear on the service brake while enhancing safety and control of the vehicle. For even greater safety, the prime movers can be equipped with the new, high-performance secondary water retarder1. This retarder is wear- and maintenance-free and offers increased brake power, higher average speeds on downhill stretches and less weight than conventional oil retarders.
