What Is A Used Torsion Axle Worth?

Postby jwh92020 » Tue Jul 05, 2016 4:22 pm

My 'tiny tiny house" trailer build is getting a new axle. The axle on the trailer is a 2100 lb Alko torsion axle w/brakes (the shoes still look new). Unfortunately, the trailer is going to end up in the 2500-2600 lb range, so a new 3500 lb axle is on it's way. I'm not building anything else for quite a while so I figured I might as well sell the Alko. The specs on it are 2100 lbs, 71.5" hub face to hub face, 56" bracket edge to bracket edge, 25 degree turn down angle, 4 lug bus. I had the bearings repacked recently, there are about 20 miles on them. Any idea what it's worth? Thanks

I had a brand new 2k torsion axle built without brakes for $190 including hubs, bearings, races, lugnuts and dust caps. with 6% sales tax we were right at $200.

Thanks for the info. Maybe I should list it "best offer".
