    The combination of now improved and much responsive Full Air Dual Line S-Cam service brakes and Spring Actuated Pneumatic parking brakes at rear works very efficiently to stop the truck at safe distance. To make sure that passengers stay safe during any any mishap, which has high probability on Indian roads, Ecomet 1212 Smart has Ladder Type frame with bolted construction and the material used is high strength. Its 8.25 x 20 - 16 PR tyres too offers required grip and hold on the roads to avoid the drift while braking at high speeds.
