Both the theoretical and practical aspects of braking in a tractor and single axle trailer combination were examined using appropriate tests that also measured other behavioural characteristics of the combination. The results showed that braking distance or deceleration can be calculated accurately but the actual braking behaviour on icy roads can currently be determined only by testing. The results also showed that the test standards for agricultural trailer brakes can give erroneous results… CONTINUE READING
