    Okay, so I’m used to just “running it” because well I’ve worked for companies that didn’t care about their equipment or how much weight you put in it.

    Now that I have my own stuff, I want to make sure I’m legal and well, the trailer can hold it.

    I have a customer that wants me to haul a 110,000lbs crane track.

    Can I put that on a 4 axel flatdeck with a 4 axel truck or will I need Jeep’s and boosters, etc.

    Here’s where i was told it was okay - 100k track on this setup.

    If you look at the trailer’s vin number plate, there’s a gvwh there too, that will tell you if your trailer can hold it.

    What he said. It is all about trailer build. I can put 100k on the deck of my all aluminum 48 spread and 60k in 4ft. Because that's the specs I wanted. No 2 trailers are the same. Look at the spec plate or the build sheet if you have it.

    This trailer is a 104,000 lbs according to the gvwr tag.

    Our steel tridem stepdeck easily held 50 tons of concrete slabs when we did local back roads.

    It did not bend like that 4 axle in the OP’s picture.

    Now, some older trailers look saggy instead of arched. Doesn’t mean it’s worn out or weak. Just the way it’s built.
