Default Ausco Disc Brake Noise

Anyone with the manual units getting any noise from then when starting out cold in the morning, I'm getting a moaning or groaning out of mine when I first start out in the morning or after the cart has set for a few hours.
I thought maybe it was just a break in thing but its been a couple of months and they still make the loud noise

Very common to hear some pad drag at low speed. If you listen carefully your car will do the same thing, especially if driven in rain a few days ago and not moved since. But your car insulates you from this noise (mostly) while your cart does not. Unless you think they are actually slowing the cart, I wouldn't sweat it. Enjoy your brakes. I do...

it's just kind of embarrassing the noise it makes, it doesn't do it all the time mainly in the morning and backing up. I've found if I hold slight brake pressure the noise stops.
just live with it I guess.

I have read on here that dry molly lube or white lithium grease on the sliders may help some. Haven't tried it myself.

You may also want to try disc brake quite. It is basically a glue that keeps the pads against the calipers so they don't "drag".

I thought I'd try some lube and also chamfer the the edges of the pads we used to do that
to quiet squeaky pads when I was still bending wrenches.
