Computation Formula: Weight = 1.5 X 700 ( L + 40 )
(L = Distance between the center of the front axle and the center of the rear axle of a given group.)
Legend:
Line A: 4 tires per axle or 2) 14-inch wide tires. Value is the formula plus 15%.
Line B: 8 tires per axle or 4) 14-inch wide tires. Value is the formula plus 25%.
Historical Note

New Table made by final rulemaking at 9 A.A.R. 665, effective April 8, 2003 (Supp. 03-1).

 

Illustration 3. Overweight Axle Groups

 

The axle group weights shown on the previous tables are maximum weights allowed on any combination of axles within the distance between the front and rear axle of a given group up to a maximum of 18 feet. The values in Table 3.01 line “A” are an expansion of the formula W = 1.5 x 700 (L + 40), where L is the distance between the centers of the front and rear axles of a group. The values in line “B” and in the remaining tables are computed by applying the percentages prescribed in the tables’ footnotes and are intended to increase the allowable weights based on wider axles and increased number of tires. Measured axle widths shall be rounded down to the nearest one-fourth foot when determining the appropriate table to use.

 

Note: The Department shall review each possible axle group that can exist within an 18-foot distance. Axles of different configurations of width or number of tires shall be prorated within the total group load in determining any allowed increase over the basic formula weight.
