Orscheln Products offers high quality hand lever parking brakes.
Orscheln Products offers high quality hand lever parking brakes. Orscheln Products’ hand lever parking brakes are designed on the principle of variable mechanical advantage, and therefore, variable hand effort. During the initial movement of the lever from the “off” to the “on” position, customers will find that there is great linear movement in comparison to the output effort. As the lever approaches the “on” position, the output effort becomes greater in comparison to the linear movement. As the lever passes over center, or toggle position, the mechanical advantage is theoretically infinite. Orscheln Products’ hand lever parking brakes also provide a screw-type adjustment feature which allows the operator to make system adjustments. This is accomplished by simply turning the adjustment knob on the lever handle. When custom hand lever designs are needed, Orscheln Products offers many different options and variations which address safety, required lever output, mounting location, operator access, and handle effort.
