Brake Beams

Series 2008 Brake Beams

Miner Series 2008 Brake Beams are designed to minimize uneven brake shoe wear, reducing brake shoe replacement by as much as 20%. The Series 2008 brake beam is now 35% stronger in its ability to resist the effects of car and truck impacts. In addition, the Series 2008 design includes new and improved brake heads - notched to reduce beam binding for more consistent braking - and an innovative reversible strut allowing for quick conversion of the hand of the beam. In addition to brake beams, Miner offers steel side frame wear plates, and other brake beam components.
