    OK here is a question you can answer then, static load is set on your trailer and come to find out when you scale you need to move the load to axle on a permit move. How far do you need to move it forwards or backwards to move 4k of weight?

    You haven't given me enough information to answer that question. I'd need to know at a minimum the axle weights of the empty rig, the axle weights of the rig as loaded, and the distance between the centers of the front and rear axle groups.

    Well, if there's an easier way to do it than doing the actual calculations, then I don't know it. I'm sure you'll pass the info along to us though. I'm famous for getting answers the hard way.

    I have. What I'm reading is that I'm needing to move 4K of weight from the front axle group to the rear axle group or vice versa, correct? If so, then I'll need the numbers that I asked for in order to come up with an answer. If not, then I'll need a clearer explanation.

    You cannot move a static load, you would have to find a way to get it moved, normal tri-axle lowboys average 1k to 1.5 per inch of movement forwards or backwards on the trailer flush loaded on the bed. Not a standard by any means but what I use as a rule of thumb.

    Here is another riddle, 39 feet of well. 42 feet of load, beveled tail.

    How do you make it fit?

    Load is 13.3 on the trailer
