    Hey, I'm working on getting a set of ramps to go from my trailer to the back of my truck so I don't have to do this anymore.:dancing:

    Don't you run two WalkBehinds? I'm talking 2 turf tigers on a so gle axle. And I use ramps to get my 36 on the back of the truck when needed

    Your questions have nothing to do with an axle getting over loaded due to the load not being balanced.

    Well, actually, yes they do. Do you think someone might notice if either of those situations occur? You said they could overload an axle by incorrect loading. They're going to notice an incorrect loading real quick.

    In the OP's post, he has a 17 foot trailer with tandem 3500 axles. That is two sets of axles. 3500 x 2 is 7000. That is enough to load a 3/4 ton pickup onto the trailer. when loading a pickup or a car even a small tractor the combined weight is with the capacity of the trailer and the weight is not isolated to one area.

    When loaded the weight is spread out.
