4 easy testing steps with theHeavy Vehicle Brake tester-Decelerometer

STEP 1: Secure the Heavy in the vehicle with its strap or optional floor- mounted magnet, in a horizontal position, with the lid open and facing forward. Attach the load cell to the brake pedal to test the service brakes.

STEP 2: Turn on the Heavy and enter the examiner’s ID and the vehicle’s registration number. Start the test by accelerating the vehicle to the required speed.

STEP 3: Apply the brakes by pressing your foot on the load cell attached to the brake pedal, until the vehicle is stationary.

STEP 4: After the vehicle has come to a stop, the Heavy evaluates the brake performance, and displays and prints the test results.


Calculates and displays average and maximum deceleration, distance to stop, test speed and pedal-force required to stop the vehicle

Prints two original reports (one for the customer, the other for the examiner) as a permanent record of the test results, date, time, examiner’s ID number and the vehicle’s registration/VIN number
