The Heavy-Duty RL-8500XLT Combination Brake Lathe features an extended capacity spindle and can turn a drum that's up to 10-inches deep. The longer spindle and the relocated rear bushing provide the RL-8500XLT arbor with enough support to handle your heaviest drum rotors.

The durably crafted RL-8500XLT resurfaces brakes quicker and more precisely than any other lathing unit on the market today. Like the RL-8500, the RL-8500XLT features unlimited feed rate settings, allowing the user to modify resurfacing rates with an easy turn of the dial. Now you can decrease or amplify the cut duration for the perfect finish regardless of if you're rushing through the first rough cut or performing a single-pass micro-finish. Comes with a strong bench plus ample tool storage backboards, so all your adapters are always nearby.

The RL-8500XLT represents the future of brake lathing technology while maintaining the classic design auto pros and technicians are most familiar with. BY implementing DC servo motor controls for the cross feed and spindle feed drives, we've removed any need for cumbersome mechanical gear boxes and transmissions used in older brake lathes. Effectively, the RL-8500XLT drastically decreases lifetime repair and maintenance cost when compared to other lathing units. One of the common problems that plague other brake lathes is the vibration and chatter transfer that directly affects the tool-tip and leaves an imperfect cut on the machined surface.

Heavy-Duty Bench
Plenty of storage on the backboard to keep your tooling close at hand, a durable multi-compartment toolbox for adapters and a large chip "catch" funnel plus chip bin to keep your workspace both clean and safe.

From Rotors to Drums and Back Again
A handy quick-change tool-head design gives operators the ability to easily change the setup from drums to rotors and vice-versa. Up-front controls are designed for minimal operator movement. A convenient tooling tray is positioned near the front of the lathe, so you can keep your preferred tools nearby.

A Complete Tooling Package Comes Standard
Micro-dial twin tool cutter, boring bar, inside floating adapters, self-aligning spacer, outside floating adapter, centering cones, spacers, double-taper adapters, hub-less adapters, carbide cutting tools, 6-sided carbide cutting inserts, 1" arbor, arbor nut, back load spring, spare bulb for lamp, illustrated instruction manual, wrenches, high-impact anti-vibration bands, storage case and more all come standard with the RL-8500XLT.

Adjustable Work Lamps
Keeps your work area properly lighted, even in the darkest corners of your shop. Separate switch lets you turn on or off at your convenience.

Clear Debris Guard
Clear Plexiglass safety shield protects the user without obstructing the view.

Customizable Stop
Adjust the cross feed stop to automatically cease lathing after the cut is made.
