Ausco invented the spring applied-hydraulically released multi-disc brake in the early 1970s. Today, Ausco remains the leader in spring applied-hydraulically released brakes.
Since Ausco patented the original energizing disc brake in 1946, the ball ramp brake has evolved into a more efficient and cost-effective design.
Ausco has done a great deal of development in hydraulic calipers over the last several years. We have developed new calipers for everything from sprayers and airport tow tractors to utility vehicles, with many more new designs on the way.
Ausco has raised the standard for mechanical calipers with its new EZTorque ball ramp caliper design. This brake produces the highest torque of any caliper in its class.
We understand what a brake has to endure inside a mine. We universally recommend sealed, multi-disc wet brakes. This application requires it.
Ausco wet brake and axle solutions for Landcruisers and light utility vehicles - safer, less cost, and less downtime.
Ausco leads the market with innovative products on dozers, mini-dumpsters, backhoe loaders, telehandlers, trenchers, pavers, graders, etc.
Ausco's 60 years of experience in agricultural braking make it the leader in this industry. Ausco developed and patented the ball ramp for farm tractors in 1946.
Our experience ranges from the largest feller bunchers and tree trimmers to the smallest stump grinders.
Ausco was the first to apply wet brake technology to these rough-and-tumble little vehicles. The resulting product was fade-proof and virtually maintenance-free.
Recently, Ausco introduced it's new line of EZ Torque™ ball ramp mechanical calipers. This design is simplicity itself.
Ausco has long been a leader in braking for the ever-changing needs of this market.
