Calculating Axle Weights: Gathering Your Info

Calculating Axle Weights: Gathering Your Info 1024 573 TruckScience

Before we can calculate axle weights, we need to gather weights, dimensions and center of gravity information for our truck, body and equipment.

Yesterday’s webinar, “Calculating Axle Weights: Gathering Your Info”, covered the information required and how to find it. It included a live demo of the TruckScience Axle Weight Calculator, using Class 3 and Class 8 vehicles.
