    I asked a question the other day that had about this in the answer. I believe it is the second axel at the back on those wagons that have twin back axels.

    Yes, thats where I picked up on it. What is it, where does it get its name from, why not just call it twin axle, is it to differenciate between the front or rear axle on a double axle.

    It is a second axel to spread the weight but it is not 'driven' .... I guess it just 'tags' along for the ride :Rofl1:

    As I understand it it is called tag as both sub axles swing around a single axle, both back wheels run one behind the other' as one chasing the other, hence tag.

    exactly the same as a single axle but with a complete second axle 'tagged' on behind the first one.

    i cant figure out Desco's diagram either:Doh: looks like a pivoting axle to me. but that wont have any sprung suspension only pivotal movement.

    The correct definition is
    "A 3rd axle (unpowered) tagged on behind the driven axle, its purpose to assist with weight" Hence Tagg Axle:thumb:
