Select an axle to suit your application.
There are basically two bearing types used in small trailers up to approximately three tonne.
Axles are usually one piece solid steel, or can be made from stub axles welded in pipe, or welded on top of a solid bar (called an overlay axle), or using a drop arm (called a drop axle). This axle can raise or lower the trailer as required.
Rubber suspension axles are also available in different capacities and sizes, as well as half axles.
Types of Standard Axles
Capacity ratings are calculated with 14 inch wheels.
When using bigger wheels eg 16 inch axle rating is reduced by 25 %
Axles with parallel bearings (same bearings inner & outer)
When using parallel axles order parallel hubs drums or discs
Capacity rating 2000 kg on 16 inch wheels
Capacity rating 3000 kg on 16 inch wheels
Stub axles of the same specifications have the same capacities depending on construction.
