Device calculates air disc brake savings

Haldex, a global manufacturer of air brake systems for trucks, trailers and buses, has introduced its Air Disc Brake Savings Calculator to help fleets determine the long-term savings of air disc brakes compared with drum brakes over the life of a vehicle (tractor or trailer).

This web-based calculator was developed to allow fleets to input customized data into the calculator to determine “life of the vehicle” savings by comparing overall cost of ownership between drum brakes and air disc brakes. The calculator allows the fleet to input actual labor cost per hour, material cost (for both truck and trailer), annual mileage, replacement cycle (number of years), number of units, and vehicle downtime. Not only does the calculator determine direct cost, but it also calculates total cost over the life of the tractor/trailer and total cost savings.

Fleets can customize data to their specifications to determine actual tractor or trailer payback at
