If I used 3 of these with 3 wheel drive, what kind of weight are they rated at for supporting side load? And if the total weight would be 5000 lbs, would that mean each one would have to be capable of supporting 1666 lbs?
A: The manufacturer's specifications state the allowable side load as: 1" from the mount face-just over 6000 lbs; 2" from the mount face-about 4400 lbs; 3" from the mount face-about 3800 lbs; 4" from the mount face-just over 3000 lbs. You will have to measure to where the force will be transmitted to the shaft and judge your load accordingly.
