(b) for a dual front axle, one-half of the axle unit weight on the dual front axle or, if that weight is more than one-half of the maximum weight permitted for a dual axle under section 116 of the Act, one-half of the maximum weight permitted for a dual axle under section 116 of the Act, and

(c) for a triple front axle, one-third of the axle unit weight for the triple front axle or, if that weight is more than one-third of the maximum weight permitted for a triple axle under section 116 of the Act, one-third of the maximum weight permitted for a triple axle under section 116 of the Act;

“intra-vehicle-unit distance”, for a five or six-axle vehicle without a drawn vehicle, means the greater of,

(a) the distance between the centres of the second and third axles from the front of the vehicle, and

(b) the distance between the centres of the third and fourth axles from the front of the vehicle;

“number of axles” means the total number of axles on a vehicle or vehicle combination that are deployed.  O. Reg. 457/10, s. 28.

(6) In Vehicle Weight Tables 1 to 29, subsections 25 (4) and (5) apply and subsection (5) of this section does not apply in determining front axle weight on an aggregate vehicle.  O. Reg. 457/10, s. 28.

DESIGNATED TRACTOR-TRAILER COMBINATION 15 — TRACTOR HINGED SEMI-TRAILER

Illustration of Designated Tractor-Trailer Combination 15 with tractor attached to hinged semi-trailer as described below.

Configuration Description

Designated Tractor-Trailer Combination 15 is a combination composed of a tractor and a hinged single semi-trailer.  The front axle of the tractor is a single axle with single tires.  The drive axle of the tractor is a tandem axle.  The semi-trailer consists of two portions permanently attached by a dual hinging system designed to prevent rotation (roll freedom) between the two portions of the semi-trailer. The front portion of the semi-trailer has a tridem axle and the rear portion of the trailer has a tandem axle.

The forward hinge of the dual hinging system allows at least 22 degrees horizontal articulation in either direction from the straight position.  The rearward hinge allows the rear portion of the trailer to articulate downward, but does not allow upward articulation relative to the front portion of the trailer. The hinge position shown in the diagram refers to the articulation point of the forward horizontal hinge.  The position of the rearward hinge is not controlled. 

Qualifying Preconditions

Weight, see s. 14

Equipment and components, see ss. 5, 6, 7, 8

If equipped with a hinge locking device, the device must be disengaged when operating on a highway, other than when reversing.
