JCB telehandler 525 brakes

Post #1 by coldcomfortfarm » Sat Jul 27, 2013 2:28 pm

Does anyone have any experience with sorting the brakes out on a Telehandler 525. Mine are squeaking and grab rather than being smooth.

Thanks

You could try changing the oil, new oil with proper anti squawk properties may help.

It's true changing the oil in the axle can stop the noise and grabbing ,when you have drained the oil out try flushing the axle out with hydraulic oil before refilling with axle oil.
