D-Celerator Diesel Engine Exhaust Brakes are a must have if you own a diesel truck and are planning to tow in the mountains or in any other down hill situations. The D-Celerator adds extra security and piece of mind when operating diesel tow trucks or diesel motor homes in hills or mountains. US Gear's state of the art technology has made the D-Celerator one of the easiest products on the market to use. It has a simple on/off switch. When you encounter a downhill situation simply turn the unit on and when you reach the bottom of the hill turn the unit off. It’s as easy as 1,2,3.
The following are typical of the many positive comments we hear about the D-Celerator:
We believe that the many benefits offered by the quality U.S. Gear diesel exhaust brakes has powered the rapid sales growth of this product experienced by PPL.
|I have the US Gear D-Celerator on my
truck, a 2003 Chevy Silverado 3500 Dually. My trailer is a 49' Gooseneck
flatbed on which I haul heavy metal that my company fabricates (see a
picture at http://imwinc.net).
I just did a long haul down to Yuma, AZ with this truck and trailer with my weight totaling 35,750 lbs. As you can imagine, I had to go up and down many steep 6% grades for miles and miles.
When going down the grades, I simply dropped my speed to 35 mph (which is recommended for trucks with heavy loads) and turned on the D-Celerator. The D-Celerator worked so well that I didn't have to touch the brake pedal even once on a 9 mile stretch of I-8 east of San Diego.
Thanks for your great product! Without it my brakes would have most definitely caught on fire.
|My trip this weekend took me from the Bay area of CA down to LA
traveling through an area known as the Grapevine and quite a challenging
pull through a fairly steep incline/decline to about 5000 feet... On the way
back Sat night, fully loaded and then some, I had to travel the summit in
near blizzard conditions (I-5 was closed right after I crossed the summit)
and the brake performed flawlessly. At no time did I feel that my control of
my rig was in question. Kudos to the crew at US Gear!!!
|[I installed the] D-Celerator on
my 2002 3500 Silverado with the Duramax. The brake worked to keep my 19,000
combined load under control down 7% + grades on our trip from WA to AZ for
our annual trek... I am impressed with the quality of your equipment and
ease of installation... Your brake is very good!!!
|That [D-Celerator] is the best
brake I have ever seen before for a pickup! The braking is awesome. I think
it is the next best thing to a jake brake for your pickup.
|Along with my overdrive on my 1997 Dodge
Cummins, I am happy to report towing our 12000+ RV I still have factory
brake shoes on rear...front pads were replaced at 130000 . [The
D-Celerator] definitely makes a
difference going down long hill. This unit was installed shortly after
delivery of truck in 1997.142000+ miles later, still works great.
|I just installed the exhaust brake on my F 250 PS. It went on as
if it had eyes. I think anyone could do the wiring.
|This thing (D-Celerator) has probably saved my
life. At least less butt puckering.
|The exhaust brake
made an immense difference in the braking and drivability performance of our
F-350. Braking downhill on 6-9% grades with a 25,000 GCW went from
almost continuous to occasional. Couple that to the peace of mind of
having the extra slowing capability of the exhaust brake made for a much
more enjoyable trip. I highly recommend your product.
|After comparing the D-Celerator
exhaust brake with other exhaust brakes on the internet and magazines, I
decided to install the D-Celerator by US Gear... I am extremely pleased
with the way it assists in braking. The braking of the D-Celerator
from U.S. Gear is very good even at lower rpm's. Once again, I would
like to thank you for a very well designed product. I highly
recommend the D-Celerator by U.S. Gear to anyone considering installing an
exhaust brake on their pickup truck.
Signed, one happy camper.
|I had your Super-Duty [D-Celerator]
installed on my 99 Ford Power Stroke... I was impressed with the way it
worked. I drove a truck for over 25 years and have some experience
operating heavy duty trucks both with and with out jake brakes, so I had
an idea of what retarders can do. To be honest with you I did not think it
would perform as well as it did, it is truly a good product and excellent
|In March of this year (1999) I purchased your D-Celerator Diesel Exhaust Brake, which I am very
pleased with. This was installed on our 1992 Dodge D-350... Needless to say, the
brake was a tremendous relief for us since we were pulling a 36' fifth wheel trailer
through the Rocky Mountains. We do not want to be without the assistance of the
brake for our next trip.
|The Exhaust Brake has worked great. It's
nice to watch RVs ahead of me ride their brakes while I don't even touch mine.

|I have had a U.S. Gear Exhaust Brake on my Dodge Diesel Pickup with which I
tow a 37' 5th Wheel since 1994... I have had nothing but excellent experiences with [U.S.
Gear service staff] every time I have the slightest question or the most technical
discussion... In my experience it is rare to find such good service backing up an
sure is a nice feature on my old '85 and I don't want to be without it on the new diesel.
I sure have been happy with US Gear and the D-Celerator.
|I had a D-Celerator installed on my F-250, 1996 XLT
PowerStroke [two and a half years ago]. This is an excellent product. I pulled
Monarch Pass in Southern Colorado (elevation 11,300 feet). I descended east and west
sides ... This unit held the truck and 5th wheel RV between 30-35 mph...
This is an outstanding product. Keep up the good work.
