Banks' revolutionary design produces stronger braking power than other exhaust brakes. The large-bore housing, streamlined to increase airflow and diffuse exhaust, adds to engine power when Banks Brake is inactive. Banks engineered in a timed valve closure rate to prevent back-pressure spikes common to other exhaust brakes and provide smooth operation. Every unit is factory tested and never requires calibration.

Well I'am here to tell you this was the best money I ever spent on my truck. I was towing a 15K pound 5th wheel and could coast down a grade and feel the brake working without touching the brake pedal. It gave me the peace of mind knowing that my speed was being controlled and I was not heating up my brakes at all. That also meant should something unforeseen happen I could still count on my brakes to bring me to a complete stop if necessary. I have had this Banks Brake installed in my 2000 Ford F350 Super Duty for over 12 years and it still works great. For those who may not know where I live, I am at 7,000 foot elevation and driving on mountain roads I have saved hundreds of dollars on brake jobs over time, which only brought my cost of having a Banks Brake down. I could not have ask for a better product and would definitely recommend it anyone who tows heavy loads or drives mountains roads. I do not, nor have I ever worked for or had any investment in Banks Engineering. I am a retired Firefighter and Just truly believe in this product. I can't say it is the best, as I have never had the need to try any other brand. But this one works well for me.
