The 2 axle straight truck shown here is the maximum weight that a 2 axle truck can have if axle weights are maximized. For many US states, the maximum weight shown is 40,000 lbs or above. However, this weight is only attainable if the front axle of the truck is rated for 20,000 lbs. Often, it will only be rated for 12,000 lbs or less, which leads to corresponding reductions in axle weights. For accurate weight restrictions on this truck type, see the detailed truck information section.
