TRP Truck Drum Brakes
TRP offers truck cast brake drums that fit applications from over-the-road to line-haul to specialty.
TRP Trailer Drums
TRP also offers a variety of trailer drums in addition to standard wheel-end products. Like truck drums, TRP trailer drums are cast and machined to the highest standards. Wheel-end components and trailer wheel-end components are frequently purchased together.
To ensure optimum braking, drums should always be replaced as a set on an axle and with compatible components. Brake compatibility means that each brake on each wheel will perform equally, doing its fair share of the work, to effectively produce a balanced and controlled stop. Proper matching of brake assemblies will result in:
- Maximum stopping performance
- Longer service life between overhauls
- Lower maintenance costs
