The Spread Axle "West Coast" is a spread axle assembly is a removable framework coupled to removable axle(s). The Spread Axle "West Coast" may use mechanical air or hydraulics to provide load transfer. The axles of the main trailer are attached to an interior rocker beam, that "floats" between the splice beams of the trailer. Weight equalization of Spread Axle "West Coast" is superior to the "East Coast" style, but the cost is significantly more. The Spread Axle "West Coast" increases the wheel base of the trailer when attached to the rear frame. The Spread Axle "West Coast" is used in heavy hauling situations where stringent "overweight" regulations and specific axle loads are critical.
