Brent Turnipseed
English translation:dry disc brakes
Explanation:
Here's an explanation of how they work.

Good luck!


"Dry disc brakes have markedly enhanced the reliability of the service brake. These disc brakes have independent front and rear air circuits. An air dryer, standard in this model, prevents humidity to the air line and is highly effective in damp, closed-in work sites such as tunnles."
