Multi-Disc Brakes


  • The Ausco Multi-Disc Brake is spring loaded to apply the brake, and hydraulic pressure is required to release the brake.
  • Normal Operation is to have the brake pressurised in the released position with the vehicle hydraulic system running.
  • Any function which reduces the hydraulic system pressure below the release pressure of the brake will allow the springs to apply the brake.

From the time Ausco invented the spring-applied, hydraulically released, multi-disc brake, the company has been the technology leader and today offer a wide variety of both wet and dry brakes to fit nearly any application. Choose a standard SAE mount or have us custom-design one for you. Ausco multi-disc brakes serve on everything from loaders and cotton harvesters to oil rig equipment, cranes, aerial work platforms and boom lifts.
