Air brake systems for wheeled excavators

Wheeled excavators are retrofitted with air brake systems more and more often to keep them safe on the road and the operating premises even when working with heavy-load trailers. A wheeled excavator licensed for public street operation can carry attachments such as a bucket, shaker plate or chisel for all pending work on a single trailer. This is particularly helpful when it moves from one day construction site to the next. The mounted compressed air brake system by Tietjen ensures the safe braking of the heavy wheeled excavator / trailer combination.
