Wet brake service offered

LARGER Zetor and Ursus tractors can now be equipped with oil- immersed brakes, rather than the standard, factory-fitted "dry" design.

The service is offered by HFS Engineering of Newtownhamilton, Newry, Co Down. The new, oil-immersed, four-disc system is said to extend brake life and offer greater braking efficiency. Fitting takes three days to complete and costs £1000.

HFS Engineering reports it has also been approached by Irelands Zetor importer with a view to fitting wet brakes to new tractors before sale.
