About BrakeMate®

BrakeMate is designed to protect workers from musculoskeletal injuries by removing the requirement for manual lifting. Many mechanics have suffered back injuries through manually handling rotor and hub assemblies weighing up to 70kg. Not only are these injuries painful for workers but they also cause financial pain for employers through lost time and Work Cover claims. Not all injuries are immediately apparent, either. Accumulative damage to the spine and joints over many years often leaves older workers with aches and pains that can prevent them from continuing in a hands-on role through to retirement age.

With BrakeMate mechanics no longer have to call for assistance with the lifting of heavy components. The whole process is a one-person operation and servicing times are greatly reduced, by more than 50 per cent in many cases. These labour savings mean the purchase costs of the BrakeMate system can be recovered over a short period of time.

Manufactured in Australia

The BrakeMate rotor/hub trolley is operated by an air-overhydraulic system. Although potential pinch points have been engineered out of the product, a three-button configuration of ‘Safety’, ‘Up’ and ‘Down’ ensures the operator’s hands are kept away from moving parts. BrakeMate allows for the quick and easy removal of the caliper utilising an adjustable clamp mechanism. This easily fits calipers mounted anywhere in the three, nine and 12 o'clock arc position. An adaptor is also available to suit calipers mounted at the six o'clock position. The rotor/hub trolley locates onto the studs. Adaptor plates allow for connection to common 10-stud and eight-stud patterns. A manual hydraulic ram separates the hub assembly from the vehicle. The use of a manually operated ram allows the operator to have a feel for the force being applied.

Once removed from the vehicle, the two trolleys are mated together. BrakeMate then easily separates the rotor from the hub. The used rotor is rolled onto the rotor rack, the ‘Lazy Susan’ mounted rack is then rotated through 180 degrees to allow the new rotor to be rolled into position. The unit is then easily refitted to the vehicle.
