Fleets considering switching from drum to air disc brakes have a new tool at their disposal to help them make a decision. Haldex's new Air Disc Brake Savings Calculator is designed to help fleets determine the long-term savings of air disc brakes compared to drum brakes over the life of the vehicle (tractor or trailer).

The web-based calculator was developed to allow fleets to input customized data to determine their “life of the vehicle” savings by comparing the overall cost of ownership. 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, vehicle downtime and more. Not only does the calculator determine direct cost, it also determines total cost over the life of the tractor/trailer and total cost savings.

Fleets can customize the data to their specifications to determine actual tractor or trailer payback at: www.haldex-disc-brake-calculator.appspot.com
