Hydraulic actuation of Tost shoe brake wheel Liliput
(Libelle, LS1, LS3*, Diamant, SF27, ASW15*, Salto, Phoebus, PW5* and others)
*not all models, call for information
To improve the braking force, all 4 inch Tost shoe brake wheels Liliput can be actuated hydraulic in the future. This eliminates loss in the brake force due to the friction of the existing mechanical cable actuation. With the hydraulic actuation the braking is considerably improved and can be better dosed. This conversion allows you to keep the existing wheel.
Improved brake performance, better dosing
Little input with great result
Installation is possible also in narrow landing gear boxes
Further use of the existing wheel
Minimal additional weight of only 500 g
Centre of gravity unchanged
