Air Brakes
Air brakes (or compressed air brake systems) stop heavy-duty trucks quickly. In this type of brakes, compressed air is used to apply pressure to the brake pad thus stopping a truck. These brakes are a powerful and effective alternative to hydraulic brakes - thus their common use in trucks, buses, and trains. Although powerful and effective, airbrakes need consistent, thorough maintenance. For all your airbrake needs, contact 585-243-0470 or visit VanGelder's Automotive Inc. today. At VanGelder's Automotive Inc., we have qualified and experienced mechanics who will work on your truck's air brakes.

Brake Maintenance & Repair
Truck brakes are much more powerful than car brakes. Faulty truck brakes put the truck driver, the load, and other road users at risk. If you are not confident in your truck's ability to stop firm and straight when you hit the brakes, then it is time to have them checked and replaced if necessary. At VanGelder's Automotive Inc., we will diagnose your truck and fleet's brake problems and offer high quality brake work. Visit our auto shop or call us today 585-243-0470.

Hydraulic Brakes
A hydraulic brake is a type of braking system that uses brake fluid to transfer pressure to the brake pads. Although most heavy trucks use air brakes, some trucks have hydraulic brakes. A hydraulic brake consists of the following: a brake pedal, a push rod, a cylinder chamber, and brake pads. With time, the hydraulic brakes components wear out and thus need replacement. For all your hydraulic brake system needs, visit VanGelder's Automotive Inc. or call us at 585-243-0470. We boast the most experienced hydraulic brake experts in the region.
