We don't make products. We develop solutions.

As a partner with leading engine manufacturers the world over, Jacobs Vehicle Systems® technology solves critical performance challenges. From meeting engine retarding, emissions and positive power levels to improving mid-range braking power, our engineers are ever testing the limits of our technology capabilities.

Exhaust Brakes

The Jacobs Exhaust Brake® uses exhaust back pressure to dramatically increase braking power by restricting the flow of exhaust gases and increasing back pressure inside the engine.

All Exhaust Brakes

Bleeder Brakes

Jacobs Bleeder Brake technology can be integrated into all diesel engines to provide enhanced engine braking performance without increasing valve-train loading.

Compression Release Brakes

The Jacobs Compression Release Brake® takes the load off of foundation brakes, turning your power-producing diesel engine into a power-absorbing air compressor.
