    Interesting. I don't have wheel covers on our lowboy, so of course we load blades with the front wheels centered on the bolster. I would have guessed you would have done the same just for strength. How did your weight turn out like that?

    How do you guys permit on 6 axles if it’s only 80,000.
    Do you max all the axles out or weigh it first

    if you permit the back 3 for 10,10,10 and you’re over on one will they give you an overweight ticket

    My 7 axle annual permit is good to 150,000 on the better roads, and down to about 115, on the lesser rated roads within the state. Idaho allows a lot of weight per group, but the mileage rate when getting real heavy gets expensive - like $.70 per mile. Up to 118,000 is $.04 per mile.

    Wyoming allows 65k per tridem, and 55k per tandem without having to go through Cheyenne to get a super load permit. That's all for non-divisible loads. An excess weight permit for divisible loads allows 129,000, BUT, you have to have the axles and bridge to pack it. So, on my 7 axle I can axle and bridge about 95k. 5 axle with spread will get you around 84k.

    On 80,000, without a permit on six axles, we're good to 43500 on the tridem in most places.

    Oh they recognize it as a tridem
    Yeah the cost is why I was wondering

    I've considered getting a 48' with rear flip, but being mainly east of the Mississippi, little confusing on how kingpin - rear axle and length is treated from state to state.

    It is confusing indeed. We primarily run just Idaho and Wyoming so I know what we can do there. When we start venturing out I have to research each state. States like Nebraska that only 20k per axle can be problematic with our set up if we are trying to haul over 85,000.

    What the heck are those? Already sounds too complicated, I'll just stick with what works.

    If you have a 3 axle trailer can you even permit it as single axles like 20,20,20 or or are you limited to whatever they give you as a tridem cause of the spacing
