The MBT 7250 Eurosystem Roller Brake Tester – taking the guesswork out of brake testing

Modern vehicles might be getting more sophisticated with every new model released, but if there’s one thing that stays the same, it’s the critical role that braking has in vehicle safety on the road. The ability of a vehicle to respond instantaneously to a driver braking without sliding, slipping or the wheels locking is essential, as its braking force, ability to decelerate and balance brake force equally between its wheel axles.

To measure the above factors accurately is critical, as it will accurately alert you to any failures or necessary adjustments that need to be made. If you’re an Australian business dealing with vehicle fleets or are in the business of servicing and maintaining them, you should know that the MBT 7250 Eurosystem Roller Brake Tester is best suited for the task of brake testing.


The MBT 7250 Eurosystem Roller Brake Tester allows you to test a vehicle’s brakes, wheel drag and disc warp or drum ovality for differences, deviances and deceleration rate in continuous and real time. With a large sensing roller of 100mm, slip rate and wheel speed is adequately covered and measured. Its ease of use means that generating evaluation reports is a simple affair and with an impressive 18000 kg axle load, it can easily be used for diagnostics in the smallest passenger vehicles right through to larger vehicles such as Semi trailers, road trains or multi combination’s and alsobuses.

The MBT 7250 has many automatic functions in place to make measurement as easy as possible while avoiding damage to the vehicle, no matter under what conditions it’s being tested in.
