Do Air Disc Brakes Lower Your Cost-per-Mile?

Learn if air disc brakes lower your cost-per-mile and save you money.

Episode #18: Brakes is one of the most common places that the cost-per-mile vs. purchase price debate intersects.

Over the last 20-years, I have seen fleets and repair shop owners be seduced into buying a skid of low-cost brake material in the hopes that they will save money.

It is not entirely surprising that disc brakes (which cost significantly more initially) have not been readily adopted on commercial trucks and trailers. In this episode, we will dive into whether air disc brakes lower your cost-per-mile and are worth the initial additional cost.
