Industrial / optional brakes

Post by 10/605.1 » Thu Oct 10, 2019 11:34 pm

I’ve just picked up a 10/60 back end. It has the standard inboard disc brakes
But also has drum brakes on the half shafts. Were these a one off or are they fairly common?
Thanks in advance

These brakes were fitted to industrial versions of Nuffields and Leylands and also as an option if required.

these were fitted mainly on council tractors because they insisted the service brake and parking brakes were totally independant of each other

It was a legal requirement for Industrial/Council tractors!
