Rotor Turning Services
Did you know that you don’t have to replace your rotors every single time you change out your brake pads? A lot of our customers are surprised to hear that they might not need new rotors. Everyone dreads having to do a brake job because of the cost associated with replacing the rotors or drums. At LaCava Brothers, we offer professional rotor turning services, which can help our customers save a lot of money and get more life out of their existing rotors. Our highly-trained specialists will inspect your current rotors and let you know whether they are eligible for rotor turning services. Currently, car rotors run $16, and car drums cost $12. For trucks, rotors run $20 and drums cost $14. Contact our office directly to check prices or to schedule service for your vehicle.
Turning or resurfacing your rotor can only be done if the metal is not rusted, corroded, or worn down beyond the manufacturer’s recommendations for safety. Since your brakes are extremely important to the safety of you, your passengers, and your vehicle, you should only employ rotor turning services when it is safe to do so. The technician begins by measuring your rotors with a caliper to calculate how much material needs to be removed and whether or not the completed measurement will still meet the minimum thickness set by the manufacturer. If it still meets specifications, then you are a candidate for rotor turning services. Our crew will provide you with the costs for rotor turning versus replacement so you can make a more informed decision about the repairs for your vehicle.
Servicing Hydraulic Hoses
Many personal vehicles, commercial vehicles, and types of industrial equipment rely on hydraulic hoses for operation. If your vehicle or piece of equipment has hydraulic hoses, then you know that they are an essential part of safe operation. At LaCava Brothers, our custom hydraulic hoses provide customers with the ultimate fluid conveyance system, delivering efficient, effective, and safe operation according to the unique needs of the vehicle or equipment. We offer a wide variety of pressure ranges, resistance to abrasion, and assembly options. All of the hydraulic hoses that we offer are built with long-lasting, high-performance applications in mind.
When you contact LaCava Brothers for professional hydraulic hose services, we are available seven days a week to better meet the needs of our customers. We only use hoses made by Gates, which is the most trusted name in hydraulic hoses. Gates has been an industry leader since 1911. We also use MegaCrimp couplings, which have been proven to offer more than 500 percent better corrosion resistance than other brands. If you are in need of servicing for your hydraulic hoses, make sure to contact our team right away or stop by our shop in Fall River.
