Next-Gen Lodestar Model RRS Single Brake

Next-Gen Lodestar Hoist Part| Single Brake- RRS Model
For the DC BRAKE ASSEMBLY, the correct air gap between field and armature is .008-.02 in (0.2-0.5 mm) for models J through RRT. (Note: the correct air gap for the small frame version is different. Please go back to check accordingly).
The DC brake is not adjustable. As the friction material wears, the brake gap increases. If the maximum air gap is reached, a new friction disc/ rotor should be installed. 
If the brake adjustment is not right, hoist hook will not function properly.  Please check the hoist troubleshooting list on Lodestar Hoist User Manual p.18
