Can I use the Timbren Axle-Less System on a Triple Axle Trailer?


Hey, Im looking at building a custom horse trailer for a client. They want the trailer to be 8 wide and have triple 7000lb axles. I was looking on your website and found these: Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System - Spindle w/ Brake Flange - Regular Tires - 7K Item # TASR7KS01 They look like they would be an awesome setup and id love to try them but they say they are not recommended for a triple axle setup. Why is that?


Expert Reply:

It is not recommended to use the Timbren Axle-Less Trailer Suspension System item # TASR7KS01 but it can be done. I spoke with my rep over at Timbren and they have done a triple axle set up but the reason they don't recommend it is because the trailer would need to be completely level both when loaded and unloaded. If the trailer isn't level it will put uneven amounts of load on certain sets compared to others.

If you would like some recommendations for 7,000 lbs axles email me back your spring seat spacing and hub face dimensions and I will be happy to help you.
