Simple one this but I dont know the answer. Whats a TAG Axle, I may have one
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
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.
That makes sense.
I need a diagram for that one mate
Sorry scanner not working hope this helps
sorry main axle moved across
k should be in line
Wheels run on axle ssss
k= joining bracket
both swivel found main axle x
same on both ends of main axel
Now I am totally confused. must have a look underneath next time I see one.
You and me both
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 eitheroh: 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:
But Geo.......that would look stupid sat behind the ducato's front (driven) axle.
Mmmm!!!! saying that i remember lady penelopes roller had twin front axles.....and yes, that looked stupid as well.oh:
Dont you be calling Lady Pen stupid ( or her car ) or I will be inviting you outside
Parker, get out the rolls , the stupid looking one with the tag axle at the front.
Well done Geo :thumb:
