Frequently Asked Questions About Heavy Duty Brake Boosters

What is a heavy duty brake booster?

A 4x4 heavy duty brake booster is a device used to increase the amount of force available to press the brake pedal. This helps to reduce stopping distances and improve overall control of your vehicle. The heavy duty models are specifically designed for vehicles with aggressive off-road use and increased weight, such as those that tow trailers or large loads. With a properly functioning heavy duty brake booster, you can have peace of mind when out on the trails.

How does heavy duty brake booster work?

Heavy duty brake boosters help increase braking force by utilising engine vacuum pressure generated while your engine is running.

Heavy Duty Brake Booster for Your Land Cruiser

If you're looking to improve the braking capacity of your Land Cruiser, Terrain Tamer has a solution for you - their heavy-duty dual diaphragm brake booster. This booster can provide up to a 30% increase in braking capacity and is suitable for Land Cruiser 76, 78, and 79 series.

Inside Look at the Brake Booster

Let's take a closer look at the brake booster and understand how and why it gives us that extra braking capacity. The brake booster works by applying vacuum into a chamber and onto two diaphragms - one on each side. When we press the brake pedal, the push rod opens a valve, allowing atmospheric pressure to flow onto both diaphragms. This added pressure doubles the amount of surface area that the vacuum and atmospheric pressure can act against, providing us with extra braking power.

Comparison with Standard Brake Booster

The dual diaphragm brake booster is considerably larger than the standard unit because of the additional diaphragms mounted inside. While the standard brake booster has only one diaphragm, the dual diaphragm brake booster has two, increasing the surface area for pressure application and providing superior braking performance.

Choose Quality-Engineered Brake Booster from Terrain Tamer

In conclusion, if you want to improve your Land Cruiser's braking capacity, the Terrain Tamer brake booster is an excellent choice. With its two diaphragms and increased surface area for pressure application, it can significantly enhance the braking performance of your vehicle.
