The main aim is to design an effective braking system which will utilize the engine exhaust as a medium to apply brakes for Tata Prima LX 5530S a heavy tractor which presently uses compressor operated drum type air braking system. Using exhaust from diesel engine will eliminate the air compressor. Hence reducing the load on engine parts which will result in better fuel economy, increase engine life and low wear of engine parts.

This paper is merely a proposal to develop and design various components, operating parameters to replace the drum brakes operated by air with exhaust operated air disc brake.
