Hunter Brake Lathes
Brake lathes trim the surface of automotive brake rotors. The brake rotor is what the brake caliper squeezes against to slow the car when the brake pedal is pressed. A warped break rotor will cause vibrations or feelings of pulsating in the steering wheel. It will also decrease the car’s ability to brake efficiently.
Hunter Engineering brake lathes and heavy-duty brake lathes bring precision and accuracy to refinishing rotors. The Hunter QuickComp® and BL500 series brake lathes increase accuracy and productivity while lowering setup error.
Viking Equipment is proud to sell these quality products to local auto shops in Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Western Massachusetts.
