Braking

Braking requirements for agricultural vehicles.

 

Agricultural vehicles must be fitted with safe and efficient braking systems. Trailed agricultural equipment must also be correctly matched for the intended speed and load being drawn, and such equipment must be routinely maintained if tractor brake failure is to be avoided.
