How To Replace Brakes On A Dump Truck (HD). In this video, our mechanic demonstrates how to replace brakes on an International Tandem Dump Truck. This brake job was performed at our yard on Saturday, 14 July 2012. The temperature on that day was approximately 95 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity was high.
Watch as our skilled mechanic as he battles the impact wrench and high heat as he removes and handles the heavy truck tires, tools, and brake components. All four rear wheel sets were removed and new brakes installed. Total time required to complete this brake job was approximately three hours, including picking up the parts and supplies required to complete this project.
The dump truck in this video is a 1997 4900 Series International Tandem Dump Truck.

This video is about air brakes and a tool I modified to install the return springs on air brakes. You can also use the pliers to remove the springs but that’s usually not the hard part. There’s probably 100 different ways to complete this job, but this is a quick way that works.

Both leaf and air suspension is available for the rear axle in truck chassis in the TGX and TGS ranges. With air suspension an A-arm in combination with two longitudinal control arms guarantees the exact location of the axles. In both suspension variants a standard stabiliser on the rear axle reduces the vehicle’s tendency to roll. In air suspension the rear-axle suspension can be given a maximum technical axle load of 13 t and in leaf suspension even a 16-t spring.
