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″ TOST shoe brake wheels Liliput can be actuated hydraulic in the future.

This conversion allows you to keep the existing wheel.
Please note: For wheels more than 30 years old, the complete wheel hub may have to be exchanged.
