Pusher and Tag Axle Weights

Pusher and Tag Axle Weights 1024 447 TruckScience

We’ve just made it easier to find the vehicles and bodies you’re looking for, and added a more detailed breakdown of axle weights when lift axles and trailers are added. Read on for more details on the latest update to our Axle Weight Calculator.

Detailed View of Pushers and Tags

We’ve added a ‘Chassis’ view, showing a more detailed breakdown of axle weights when pusher or tag axles have been added. Use this view to review original and modified chassis weights (before and after lift axles are added).

Detailed View of Vehicle

We’ve also added a ‘Vehicle’ view, showing the weights that make up the total unladen vehicle weight. That is, chassis, body and equipment weights. This is particularly useful when one or more trailers have been added.

Filters and Sorting

When swapping in a new vehicle to your calculation, you can now filter and sort by CA or wheelbase, or by specification date.

We’ve also added filters for body, equipment and trailer brands, and you can view current or discontinued items, or both.

Dump Template

We’ve simplified the graphic for template dump bodies, to give a better representation of different dump types.

Webinar Series

To help our loyal customers and followers make the most of downtime during the global pandemic, we have been running regular webinars on Calculating Axle Weights.

Library Updates

In response to requests from users in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, United Kingdom and United States, we’ve added cranes, dump bodies, pintle hooks and log loaders from Crysteel, HIAB, Holland, HYVA and Serco… as well as vehicles from Ford, FUSO, Hino, Isuzu, Mack, MAN, Tata, UD, Unimog and Volvo ranges.

Keep your requests for vehicles, bodies and equipment coming in, as the true-to-life graphics of the standard equipment in the library make for an impressive PDF report to share with your customers.
