TTC has over 70 different units in stock, all TUV approved, covered by a 3 year warranty and they are available now from your approved TTC Distributor.
Brake defects account for a large percentage of the causes of trucks taken out of service. Many of those defects are simply adjustment issues.
Slack adjusters, as the name implies, are designed to take up the slack in the brake operation as friction surfaces wear away. In normal service on a trailer an operator would expect to adjust a manual slack adjuster periodically, let’s say every 10,000 miles or so, or better still, make the adjustment when it is required. Manual slack adjusters require operator intervention.
