Tridem Drive Tractors:
Pusher or lift axles are NOT recognized; all axles must drive.
A spread axle group (over 6’ spacing) is treated as a single axle for weight allowances, and it’s not allowed to carry more than 20,000lbs total (10,000lbs per axle)
Must carry an Annual Spread Axle Exceeding 3.05m permit to enter Manitoba with a 10’ to 12’ spread axle trailer. HOWEVER, this still does not allow extra weight.
Trailer Lift/Flip Axles:
MB will all lift or flip axle on trailer on overweight load permit if the axles are evenly spaced.
The axle must be chained up securely when not in use for the load.
You can get annual permit for a lift axle as long as the axles in group are evenly spaced.
