Air Brake Repairs
Brake failures are a common cause of truck accidents and may lead to very costly lawsuits, injuries and even death. These terrible instances can all be avoided by properly maintaining your truck’s brake system and having air brake repairs done at the first sign of trouble.
The importance of the air brake system on a semi truck can’t be overlooked. Since your truck can carry such tremendous weight while fully loaded, it’s important to have an air brake system that is fully functional. When your truck’s air brakes start to fail, driving safely becomes a difficult task.

The way the air brake system functions present more opportunities for problems than traditional vehicle brake systems. The use of multiple couplings, airlines, and cables mean that more time must be spent on inspections, maintenance and repairs to make sure the entire system is sound.
Parking brakes and emergency brakes are also affected when the air brake system malfunctions. Since the emergency brake system is *required by law to be in good working order, it becomes even more critical to maintain your air brakes.
*CFR 49 393.43– Every motor vehicle, if used to tow a trailer equipped with brakes, shall be equipped with a means for providing that in the case of a breakaway of the trailer, the service brakes on the towing vehicle will be capable of stopping the towing vehicle.
