6 Axle Semi Truck

semi truck tractor trailer The 6 axle semi truck is another common truck combination. For carriers that operate in Canada, the western US, and parts of New England, this is the truck combination that is most commonly used for many goods, especially those that weight out before they cube out. Across Canada, this combination can gross out at 100,000 lbs to 110,000 lbs. In some western US states, weights of up to 110,000 lbs are possible on this combination. As of 2015, there are talks in place considering increasing interstate weight limits to take this combination into account and making it the standard combination across the US. If implemented, the gross weight capacity would likely be 97,000 lbs on the interstate.
