Don’t Overload the Axles on Your Trailer

No Comments

We’re not sure about the ratings on these axles.


But we can help you on any of the high-quality, up-to-date vehicles we offer at all three of our Trailer Boss locations.

When you are pulling a utility trailer or any other trailer for that matter, you will want to make sure you aren’t overloading the axles. Axle overload can cause damage to your trailer as well as dangerous accidents.

Most trailers have a load capacity for every axle. Generally speaking, axles have different weight capacities rated anywhere from 1,000 pounds to 10,000 pounds.

You can, however, determine the weight capacity by looking at the diameter of the axles. For instance, an axle with 1.5-inch diameter has approximately a 1,000 pound capacity. A different trailer with a 5-inch diameter will have approximately a capacity of approximately 10,000-pounds.

At Trailer Boss we know trailers. We sell the best brands and give you the best services of anyone in the northwest. Our customers come from Spokane, British Columbia, Portland,  and all locations in between.

Whether you looking for a utility trailer in Seattle or a dump trailer in Portland, Oregon, we will try to hook you up with the exact model you want. Maybe you want a cargo trailer in Rochester or a rental trailer in Olympia. We have you covered.
