I was reviewing info. on the Dexter website and it looks like Dexter has increased the max capacity on the #10 axle
to 4K lbs. Until recently the max was only 3.5K lbs. This looks like a great replacement option for use on the 5er trailers and other heavier trailers. You may also want to specify the 4K on a new heavier trailer.
Note: When ordering axles you specify the weight
you want within the weight
range of the axle
. Also an oversized axle
on a light
trailer can also damage a trailer like a dead axle can.
