    This bloke that I subcontrated in for a big job last week kept slaming on the hand brake on a Chariot before the it came to a complet stop and now the hand brake isn't doing it's job even arfter I've adjusted it.

    Just wondering if anybody else has ever had this issue and how much did it cost to fix it?
    Are their brake pads inside the hydros or how dose it work?

    How bigger deal is this do you think? Will I need to pull apart the pumps?

    Cheers... :)

    Well my the hand brake on my chariot was not woking well at all and my dealer told me to take a screwdriver in the middle and loosen the screw and twist until you start feeling pressure then tighten the screw back up and the break works great now good luck
