THE PRICES of exchange brake shoes from Multipart — Leyland's all-makes commercial vehicle parts subsidiary — have been reduced by an average of six per cent on 16 parts for Ford, Bedford, Seddon Atkinson, Dodge, ERF and Leyland trucks and most British trailers.
The 16 brake shoe sets — each comprises a pair of shoes — are all remanufactured to original, as new specification and carry a 12-month unlimited mileage warranty.
At current prices, the cost of a full brake reline on a typical two-axle 13-tonne Ford Cargo using Multipart remanufactured shoes is quoted as £.150. Using new 'units, however, the cost would be £500 according to Multipart.
Exchange shoes can be delivered to operators' premises by Multipart dealers, and Multipart says it is not necessary to hand in old shoes before receiving a set of remanufactured shoes.
