Clutch brake assembly

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #5957256.

A clutch brake assembly includes a clutch and a transmission shaft for transmitting rotational motion from the clutch to the transmission. A brake disc is rotatably driven by and slideably disposed on the transmission shaft. A clutch release member is also slideably disposed on the shaft. Brake pads are non-rotatably and removably attached to the release member and a bearing retainer on the transmission for dissipating braking energy. Each of the brake pads include a backing plate and friction material secured to the backing plate. During operation, the release member frictionally sandwiches the brake disc between the release member and the bearing retainer for reducing rotation of the shaft. The inventive brake pads are configured to facilitate replacement of the pads without disconnection of the transmission.
