10,000lb – 16,000lbs

Although DexKo Global (Dexter) has bought out most of the larger axle manufacturers, such as AL-KO and Quality, there are still many of these axles out in the field. The parts for these axles have not been standardized, so there is no interchangability of components between these brands. There are some off-shore replacement components for some of these brands that reduce the cost when purchasing replacement parts.

How to Identify Axles with Dual Wheels

(10,000lbs – 16,000lb Capacity)

  • The name of the axle manufacturer; the easiest way is to read the axle’s oil cap
  • The inside and outisde wheel bearing numbers
  • The number of wheel studs, along with the diameter of said wheel studs
  • Whether it is a one-piece or two-piece hub & drum
  • If the drum has an armature plate
  • The pilot diameter of the wheel
