Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake partners with Ken-Tool to provide new air disc brake tool kits

Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC now offers three new service tool kits for fleet and repair facilities servicing Bendix ADB22X-equipped commercial vehicles.

Elyria, Ohio, January 25, 2010—Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC now offers three new service tool kits for fleet and repair facilities servicing Bendix ADB22X-equipped commercial vehicles.

The tool kits—manufactured by Ken-Tool, a manufacturer of tire service tool kits—were specifically developed based upon required service normally related to vehicle age, accumulated miles and vocation. Made in the U.S., the tool kits offer service technicians the ability to match the tool kit to the level of service a vehicle may require.

Three new tool kits are available: The Tappet and Boot Replacement Tool Kit; Guide Pin/Pin Boot Service Tool Kit; and the Complete Kit. Aftermarket distributors who place an order by Feb. 8, 2010, will receive a one-time discount of up to 50 percent off the total kit order. All preordered tools will ship no later than April 15, 2010.

Incorporating the robust design developed by parent company Knorr-Bremse, Bendix air disc brakes are proven to significantly reduce stopping distances for commercial vehicles; virtually eliminate brake fade with no degradation of stopping power; enable a passenger car-like feel; and permit straight, stable stops due to high brake efficiency and low hysteresis.
