Hi,

I am covering compassionate leave at our other site at the moment, and am loving them now.;) 

I have discovered by use that if the handbrake is on whilst testing the front brakes, the vehicle Isn`t thrown out of the rollers and will provide a more accurate brake reading and record correctly any lock out.

By Chocking the front wheels whilst carrying out the rear parking brake test, Increases the measured percentage from, say 16 or 17% to 25% and as above Will record any lock out.;)

Prior to using the Chocks, I personally wasn`t impressed and always carried out a decelerometer test to prove it.

We have a scissor lift with no pillars no problem, but the use of an assistant to place a couple of chocks in for you is allowed.;)

Hope this helps.:D
