A type of brake that has an iron casting shaped like a shallow drum that rotates with the wheel. Curved brake shoes are forced into contact with the inner periphery of this drum to provide braking.
hydraulic brake in which friction is applied to the inside of a spinning drum by the brake shoe
A brake system that uses a wheel cylinder to force two brake shoes against a rotating drum. (used primarily as rear brakes, but have been used in the front in older vehicles.)
Brakes using a drum attached to the wheel. Brake shoes are forced against the rotation drum to retard the vehicle.
Brake systems, usually mounted on back wheels, that force curved brake shoes against the inner walls of a hollow metal drum attached to each wheel.
A braking system where a metal drum is attached to the wheel, and the rotation of this, and so the wheel, is slowed and halted by curved devices called brake shoes being pressed hard against the brake lining which causes friction on the inside of the drum.
Consists of brake shoes that are mounted to a backing plate that bolts to the rear end housing, or in the case of older model cars may be present on the front axles also. The shoes are housed in a round drum that rotate along with the wheel.
