Are You Up to Speed with the Latest Legislation Now in Force?
When did you last get your trailer or tanker brake tested? If you can’t remember, you are not alone because currently we have an industry wide epidemic of ‘under braked’ trailed equipment in use.
New legislation is now in place as of March 2015. Under this new legislation, the maximum combination weight limit for tractors and trailers has been increased from 24.39 to 31 tonnes and from 20 to 25 MPH for conventional tractors representing a 27% increase in your gross vehicle trail weight, the crucial question is – are your brakes up to speed?
You can make sure your tractor and trailed equipment meet the correct criteria for the new legislation by reading ‘Look Behind You’ prepared by the Agricultural Engineers Association. Simply click on the image to find out more.
