Ausco Products is pleased to announce the availability of their 1218 multi-disc wet brake for use on small mining personnel carriers. This patent-pending brake is uniquely designed to fit Dana D12 and D18 axles, which are commonly used in two man personnel carriers in underground coal mining. The brake is designed to retrofit existing axle installations and can be used on either new or used cars. The brake features Ausco’s grease barrier sealing technology for maximum resistance to harsh environments, as well as high energy capacity wet linings for long life and durability. The brake’s full bearing set eliminates side loads from the axle, reducing axle stress and improving axle life.
