LOAD BUILDING CHALLENGE: Axle Weights and The California Kingpin law


I'm Tom Moore people talk about the California bridge laws the bridge law is for California are the same as all the other states in the country the goal is to spread the weight out over a bridge so you don't Crush the bridge my by concentrating the way what they really want to talk about is the California kingpin Rule and if you look at a trailer most of us would think about having the wheels back here unfortunately California insists that the distance between the Kingpin and this rearmost wheel be no more than 40 feet that creates some issues obviously you have to consider any weight back here is going to push back up over here it's a requirement that you manage how you load.
