Average pad life at 50% of maximum torque and speed is 4500 revolutions, or approximately 10 miles w/ 48″ diameter reel.

LED Lighting & Electrical

LED sealed beam wiring system with stop / turn/ tail lights recessed in a structural tubing bumper to meet FMVSS 108 ensure long life of these signaling lights.  Automotive-grade wiring harness features SAE bullet-style connectors at each light, ensure easy replaceability of individual lights.  SAE 7-way socket protected top sides and back with almag housing.  Sealed breakaway with charging circuit and LED battery condition indicator with 450 C.C.A. maintenance-free battery.  Recessed ABS license plate housing with integrated lamp provide very high protection of both the license plate and its illumination.

Wheel Nut Indicators

Our wheel nuts are torqued to manufacturer specifications, and are then fitted with high-visibility wheel nut indicators. The indicators are fitted in a uniform pattern, so when a wheel nut has loosened, the indicator will become out of sequence. The wheel nut indicators are also heat sensitive. If there is a binding brake or seized bearing, the heat is transferred through the stud and nut. If this temperature exceeds 120º C (248º F), the indicator will start to blister around the circumference and eventually start to distort. Pre-flight walkaround checks now can include wheel nut checks.
