One important aspect of driving a low flatbed trailer is to pay attention to safety. Therefore, flatbed trailers have a long body, load a lot of things, and react slowly when encountering danger. Among various safety measures, braking is crucial, but their maintenance work is also easily overlooked. So how can the braking system of a flatbed trailer be better maintained? Let's take a look together:
1. Daily maintenance of the brake system. Clean and high-quality brake fluid is the foundation for the safety of flatbed trailers and good braking system performance. You should purchase brake fluid with better quality on the market. If the brake fluid is dirty, drain and flush the entire system, then fill the master cylinder with new fluid. Do not reuse brake fluid, all released brake fluid should be discarded. After all, doing a maintenance doesn't cost much money, life is truly precious, and the safety price is even higher.
2. Replace the brake pads. Usually, whether the brake warning light on the dashboard of a flatbed trailer lights up is used as a basis for determining whether to replace the brake shoes. However, this is the bottom line. In some cars, the warning light only lights up when the brake shoes have been completely worn out. At this time, the metal base of the brake pads and the brake disc are already in a ground iron state, and shiny iron chips can be seen near the edge of the tire rim. Therefore, it is necessary to check whether the brake pads can be used during each maintenance visit, and replace brake pads that are close to the bottom line of their lifespan in advance.
To increase the safety of driving a low flatbed trailer, it is necessary to slow down the speed of the trailer when parking the vehicle, observe the condition of the front and back of the vehicle, and promptly sound the horn or light up to alert surrounding vehicles to prevent accidents from occurring. Here is also a reminder to cultivate daily maintenance and repair of the headlights of low flatbed semi-trailers, as their function is obvious. http://www.sdhynytc.com
