End Use and Function
This brake shoe was developed to replace a 3-piece weldment. The shoe is used in a 6 in. simplex drum brake that is used on lawn care, warehousing, and other off-road equipment. The brake shoe carries the bonded lining that provides the friction for the brake. The brake shoe is actuated using a cam, allowing the lining to rub against the drum, providing the required friction to stop the vehicle.
