Thanks, I was worried how it would shift the weight off of the front, being back that far. The way it sits now is 12ft of flat and 3ft dove. I may do 10 ft flat and 4ft dove. That might help shift the weight forward someShould be able haul 14k legally on that axle I think so I’d say no problem
I have 0 semi truck / flat bed experience, but it might be a good idea to get it weighted (with split weights ft/rr) before putting the flatbed?
That should give you a good idea of what's acceptable.
Thanks for the input. Where you hauling coils out of?I’ve seen some guys haul a pretty good size dozer on a set of tandem axles set up just like you’re doing. It will handle the weight absolutely no problem but getting it distributed properly is key. If you get the weight too far forward it will be rough ass ride. I’d try to get it centered as much as possible over the centerline of the axle, maybe a little towards the rear . I’ve had coils be a foot to 18” to far forwards and it’s a rough ass ride.
Yeah I took it off, I had to cut them. It was hard to get a wrench under there. Then the bolts on the frame where huck bolts, those were fun. Used a cut-off wheel, and when I would get enough cut, the tension on them, would send them into space like little rocketsDid you take the 5th wheel off? If so did you cut all the bolts?
