Thanks for your replies

I appreciate what your saying but in the S.N. it says that the inspection manual is to be updated whether what you pointed out is going to change in the Manual let's see

As you said I'll carry on as before You know if there's something wrong or not

Hi & welcome.
Have you thought about about checking 1 wheel at a time, have a look at the manual 3.7 " Use the procedure detailed in 1 - 7 below, or an alternative procedure suitable for the particular Roller Brake Tester being used, ensuring that all elements of the brake test are covered."
Hope that helps

Hi to everybody on the Forum

I have a Tecalemit DE9415 and with the new regulations regarding testing both wheels at the same time until one locks or maximum effort is acheived.
The problem is I can't get a reading to stay on the screen with both wheels on together.
So you have to take it up to where you think they are going to lock and take a reading,very inconvenient.

Does anybody know of a way around this or is there an update coming from Tecalemit.

Thanks
Rob
