Does Tandem 6k Axles Have Capacity for 13,500 lb Trailer

Expert Reply:

Actually no, your axle capacity is 12k and you said you plan to carry 13,500 lbs so you'd be exceeding the axle capacity. The trailer axle # 8327872-EB you referenced has a 7k capacity so as long as it's the correct size it would work well for you. It has a overall length of 94 inches from hub face to hub face and 78-1/4 inches from spring seat to spring seat and has a 4 inch drop.

For a 8k axle leaf spring we have the part # DX74XR as well.
