Does your off-road construction equipment announce its arrival well before it actually does? The squeal of wet brake chatter is not only annoying, but it's a sign that your brakes aren't operating as efficiently as they should be.

The right fluid can silence the chatter
Using the wrong type of fluid on your brake pads is typically the chatter culprit. Shell makes several fluids for wet brakes to prevent that issue, and they can also be used as combined fluid for hydraulic systems. If you're experiencing chatter or erratic operation when your wet brakes are engaged, it's important to get the right fluid for your particular equipment.
