BrakeMate® reduces the risk of injury, whilst saving time and money

BrakeMate® has been designed as an elevated service platform for servicing heavy vehicle brake disc assemblies; it eliminates the majority of manual lifting during the disc brake maintenance process and substantially reduces service time, leading to a saving in both time and money. It also enables a single user to complete the whole process, rather than being a two-person job.

• Eliminate manual lifting of caliper, hub and disc
• Reduce the risk of back injury
• Ideal work height
• Reduce service time
• Reduce maintenance times and costs
• Drum brake adapter option available
