Re: axle weights

Re: axle weights

These are all guesses except for the 14FF. I can carry a rear 10 bolt but a front 10 bolt all I can do is drag it. Three people can move a 14FF and it takes no less than four to move a Dana 60.

A fully-loaded kingpin front Dana 60 is like 600lbs. It's at least 500lbs.

A fully-loaded front 10 bolt is like 350lbs.

A drum-braked rear 10 bolt is around 225lbs. A disc-braked one is about 15lbs lighter.

A drum-braked 14FF is 400lbs. You can get it down to around 330 with some shaving and discs.
