Requirements for Super load Vehicle Permit Application 8/21/2013 Super Load


In hauling loads especially if these are oversized and overweight need a special permit to do so. A permit for superload will be given when the requirements are met. Requirements such as if a load is 51 feet of overall spacing and 36 feet of the inner - bridge then the spacing or number of components for overweight will not be taken into consideration but instead a passed analysis through a super load program of axle weights and axle group. The maximum group weights are classified as the following: single is 29,000 pounds; tandem which is not more than four feet and 1 inch and must be at least 36,000 pounds; tandem which is four feet and more and must be 50,000 pounds; tri-axle which is less than four feet and one inch and must be 47,000 pound; tri-axle of four feet and one inch and greater and is 60,000 pounds; the quad-axle which is less than four feet and one inch and is 60,000 pounds; and quad-axle and more and must be 80,000 pounds. Sometimes more axles or more components are required in case the application did not pass the bridge analysis. This is done so as to evenly distribute the weight over the vehicle or trailer. When a vehicle’s gross vehicle weight is over 120,000 pounds it is counted as a superload but the minimum spacing of 65 feet overall spacing and 51 feet of space for the inner bridge will not be needed. But when a vehicle is more than 132,000 pound the three components will no longer be needed as long as the maximum axle or axle group weight are not too much and of course the analysis is present. The equalizer’s required weight of 2000 pounds between axles within a group and all other rules still apply. In maneuvering a truck and trailers the axles must be lifted and are needed so the weight of the superload will be distributed. These axles are listed as loading bearing axles on overweight load and must stay in a fully lowered position except during turning where the control of the vehicle will be difficult and there will be wear and tear of the tires. The axles are designed to evenly distribute the weight of the load on all the axles of the trailer and the retractable axles are included. When utilizing components like jeep, stringer, booster and others these needs to be registered and a license plate is included. Every component must have a corresponding license plate written on the permit application. In case a component did not place the license plate on the application but has one or if the component did not register for a license plate but has to then the operator of these components are subject to an enforcement action. By the way, it is the home state where the vehicle is registered which will decide whether there will be a need for a registration of license plate for the component.
