Techplus adds Agricultural BrakeSafe

Workshop equipment specialists, Techplus has added Turnkey Instrument’s Agricultural BrakeSafe to its product portfolio.

As part of an initiative to improve the standard of tractor and trailer braking, Turnkey worked with¬†BAGMA, the British Agricultural and Garden Machinery Association, the Health Services Executive, and the Department for Transport to design the UK’s only portable brake tester to measure brake efficiency for tractors and trailers.

Based on the BrakeSafe Classic instrument, the Agricultural BrakeSafe measures peak and mean fully developed deceleration (MFDD), as well as testing speed, stopping distance and time to stop.
It is also able to adjust deceleration for the mass ratio when testing trailers.

The Agricultural BrakeSafe has the capability to allow the user to insert the vehicle registration for print out on the ticket along with the company name. It is self levelling and will automatically align itself with the direction of travel.
