Understanding the Brake Drum System

The brake drum system is commonly used in heavy-duty trucks and consists of a large drum mounted on the wheel hub and a set of brake shoes that are mounted inside the drum. When the brake pedal is pressed, hydraulic pressure is applied to the brake shoes, which press against the drum's inner surface, creating friction that slows down the wheel's rotation. 

The brake drum system's advantages include its ability to dissipate heat efficiently, making it suitable for heavy-duty trucks carrying heavy loads. However, the system can be prone to fade, reducing stopping power, especially in high-performance applications. Proper maintenance of the brake drum system, including regular inspections of the brake pads and drum surface, as well as checking the brake fluid's cleanliness and level, can help to ensure the braking system remains safe and reliable.

Types of Brake Drum Repair Services by Fleetgo Heavy Duty

The brake drum system is an essential part of a heavy-duty truck's braking system, and it's important to ensure that it's in good working condition at all times. There are several types of brake drum repair services that may be required to keep the system operating smoothly:

Brake Drum Resurfacing

Over time, the surface of the brake drum can become worn or uneven, which can reduce the effectiveness of the brakes. Our brake drum resurfacing involves machining the surface of the drum to restore it to its original smoothness and thickness.

Brake Shoe Replacement

The brake shoes are an important component of the brake drum system, and they can become worn or damaged over time. Brake shoe replacement involves removing old shoes and replacing them with new ones to ensure optimal braking performance.

Brake Drum Replacement

In some cases, the brake drum itself may need to be replaced if it is damaged or worn beyond repair. Our brake drum replacement involves removing the old drum and replacing it with a new one that is compatible with the truck's braking system.

Brake Hardware Replacement

The brake hardware includes components such as springs, retainers, and clips that are used to hold the brake shoes in place. Over time, these components can become worn or damaged and may need to be replaced by our technicians at Fleetgo Heavy Duty to ensure the proper functioning of the brake drum system.

Brake Fluid Flush and Replacement

Brake fluid is a critical component of the braking system, and it can become contaminated over time with dirt, debris, and moisture. Our brake fluid flush and replacement involves draining the old fluid and replacing it with fresh, clean fluid to ensure optimal brake performance.

FleetGo is nothing short of amazing.  They are kind and reasonable. They take every effort to put themselves in the shoes of a small business owner to do what they can to help.

Bradly Helm

I have used FleetGo for several years now and I recommend them to anyone with a heavy duty truck. They are prompt, fair pricing and overall make every effort to get our trucks finished so we can get back on the road as fast as possible. This morning one of our trucks had a belt break, they were on site within an hour and had it fixed shortly after that. Cant thank them enough!

Helped one of my drivers out in a jam on short notice the week before Christmas and got him rolling in less than 2 hours.

Very good service.  Pricing on par with industry average.

We had been having a stumbling issue with our 2007 international 7400 for a year and a half, had it at dealer and performed many tests to resolve situation but to no avail,

Called Aaron at Fleetgo after a reputable company referred him and had issue solved over the Phone in less than 20 minutes of his call. Give him a try👍👍👍👍👍
