What is a Trailer Axle?

A trailer axle is a critical component of a trailer's suspension system, responsible for supporting the weight of the trailer and its cargo while facilitating smooth movement and steering. It is typically a straight box section which is bolted or welded onto the trailer chassis, with rotating hubs to allow wheel movement when towing. The axle assembly includes various components such as hubs, bearings, and brakes, depending on the type of axle (braked or unbraked) and the specific requirements of the trailer. Trailer axles come in different configurations to accommodate various trailer types, load capacities, and towing needs. They play a crucial role in ensuring stability, control, and safety during towing operations.

Trailer Axles FAQ’s

How do I determine the right axle capacity for my trailer?

The axle capacity should match or exceed the gross weight capacity of your trailer, which is the maximum weight that the trailer can safely support. Consider factors such as the trailer's weight, load distribution, and intended use when selecting the axle capacity.

Can I replace just one axle on my tandem axle trailer?

It's generally recommended to replace both axles on a tandem axle trailer to ensure balanced performance and uniform wear. However, if only one axle is damaged or worn out, it may be possible to replace it individually, but it's crucial to maintain proper axle alignment and weight distribution.

 How often should I grease the bearings on my trailer axles?

Bearings should be greased regularly to prevent premature wear and ensure smooth operation. Depending on usage and conditions, it's typically recommended to grease trailer bearings every 12 months or 12,000 miles, or more frequently if the trailer is exposed to water or harsh environments.
