The Ottawa Truck brake system is operated with a foot pedal or (treadle valve). This foot-actuated valve is actually two valves that operate in quick sequence. It is connected in the front and rear brake circuitry so that the rear brakes begin to act before the front brakes when the operator steps on the pedal. When air pressure is correct in both circuits, the second stage is driven via air pressure by the first stage. If air is lost to the first stage, the second stage is driven mechanically by the first stage.

The hydraulic system is powered by a power take off (PTO) which is bolted on the side of the transmission and is ran off the gears inside the transmission. The PTO has a hydraulic pump bolted to it with a shaft that has splines that fit into the PTO. This pumps fluid throughout the system and to the hydraulic valve.

Have you noticed leaking in your yard truck truck brake system or even a malfunctioning of your brakes altogether? You may need a replacement on your Tractor Protection Valve. This protection valve is part of the pneumatic system that maintains the air in the brake system and allows air to pass to the trailer and back to the truck. When this part malfunctions, the air system may leak or fail to release the trailer brakes.
