Ausco Wet Brake and Axle Solutions for Landcruisers and Light Utility Vehicles

Safer, cost-saving solutions for Toyota Land Cruisers and light utility vehicles

OEM drum brakes on Toyota Land Cruisers or light utility vehicles are not built for the harsh mining environments you work in. That’s why you constantly have to service or replace your drum brakes. But there’s a safer, cost-saving solution — Ausco’s 2- and 4-wheel wet braking systems, made by people who know your safety depends on these brakes. People who understand you have no time or money to waste on frequent maintenance either. So our brakes are built to stop safer and last longer. They’re the only brakes you want in a mine.

Choose from these two wet brake solutions:

Rear Only Wet Brakes with Service & Park

This 2-wheel wet braking system provides a:

  • Simpler Solution — comes pre-assembled, ready to drop in and bolt in place. No vehicle modifications or lift truck needed for installation or servicing.
  • Safer Solution — spring applied parking brake fails-to-safe even on steepest ramps.
  • Less Costly Solution — internal oil cooling chamber runs cooler with no lining glazing or brake fade.

These brakes are corrosion and contamination resistant, too. You’ll experience less heat, less wear, less downtime, less maintenance and replacement costs.

  • Hose kit includes all lines, fittings, connectors, clips and hardware you need to plumb the master cylinder, pump kit and brakes.
  • Hard lines are stainless steel and are pre-bent for easy assembly.
  • Premium Pump Pack – sealed stainless steel enclosure mounts behind the seat and includes all wiring and hardware needed for installation.
  • Dash panel control fits right into the radio slot for clean, simple and well-protected installation.
  • Double 2-Stage braking technology allows you to use your stock Toyota master cylinder with calipers in front and Ausco wet brakes in the rear.
  • OEM front calipers are unaffected.
  • Brakes mount to existing rear axle hub with no modifications.
  • Optional adapter kit is available to mount brake to vehicles with 4-wheel caliper disc brakes.
  • In this configuration, spring applied parking and hydraulic service is available at the rear wheels.

Full 4-Wheel Wet Brake Solution

This full 4-wheel braking system provides a:

  • Simpler Solution — comes pre-assembled; requires no lift truck to move and minimal vehicle modifications to install.
  • Safer Solution — fully sealed, 4-wheel wet brakes stop reliably and controllably for service while failing-to-safe in all mining conditions.
  • Less Costly Solution — internal oil cooling chamber runs cooler with no lining glazing or brake fade. High- energy metallic linings wear less for less maintenance and less downtime. Built corrosion and contamination resistant, too. You’ll spend less on maintenance and replacement year after year.
    • Hose kit includes all lines, fittings, connectors, clips and hardware you need to plumb the master cylinder, pump kit, and brakes.

The needs of mining are unique. You need brakes that will hold up under the worst environments. And you need brakes that won’t shut down your operation. You need service, and you need reliability. At Ausco, we understand what a brake has to endure inside a mine. We universally recommend sealed, multi-disc wet brakes. This application requires it.

Construction

Ausco is the leader in brakes for construction equipment. When John Deere needed a new wet park brake for its “H” series loaders, they called us. Ausco designed a brake that acts as both the parking brake and the mid-mount bearing. The result was a high-value product that eliminated Deere’s reliability concerns with caliper brakes and reduced overall cost.
