Braking Performance - Asphalt Pavers
|Publication Date:||1 January 2006|
This SAE Standard specifies brake system performance and test criteria to enable uniform evaluation of the braking capability of self-propelled, rubber-tired and tracked asphalt pavers. Service, secondary, and parking brakes are included.
This document applies to self-propelled, rubber-tired and tracked asphalt pavers as defined in 3.1 and to these same machines while in service.
At the five-year review, a need was recognized to update SAE J2118 to increase the required brake system stopping and holding performance. It was also recognized that the scope of the document should be broadened to cover both rubber-tired and tracked asphalt pavers to provide one comprehensive document for these machines. In addition, some sections of the document have been revised and new sections added to improve the document by clarifying the use of hydrostatic drives as a service brake system and to make it consistent with other SAE braking documents.
