    I need to get a price for 2 new axels for a 10x5 car/jeep cattle trailer. They will be need to be braked.
    Can anyone recommend the best place to get a price?

    4 or 5 stud and what PCD are the wheels? (presuming you want to reuse the wheels)
    3.5 ton or 2.7 ton trailer?
    And measurement B below
    Not too hard to spend €300 - €400 on an axle.

    It's a 5 stud.
    What is PCD?
    Will do the measurements at the weekend. Had sent you a pm.
    It's 2.7ton or less. It's a 2 cow trailer.
    We are contemplating selling it. It has a perfect body but we wouldn't like to off load it onto someone with the state that both axel are in. I wouldn't trust it with 2 heavy cows.

    Didnt get your pm for some reason :confused3:
    You will probably be looking at 1500kg axles.
    See pic for PCD, its easier to measure a 4 stud, but if the measurement as in pic is 6.5 inches it would be good news as regards matching your wheels.

    I put a new bare axle on my ifor a few years ago
    £200 iirc
    Funnily enough just had to fit a new backplate to 1wheel as the expander came loose and jammed the wheel and bent the backplate
    Backplate and all brake bits were £41

    Anyone know what a complete axle assembly for a Nugent cattle trailer would be?. Everything bar springs in other words. Mine needs the middle and rear axle brakes done along with cables. Lot of miles on her now and I would assume a nice bit of wear on the drums. Last time I redid the brakes I was disappointed with them.

    I dont focus too much on axles tbh, if a lad wants one, i will give him a price, but I dont stock any.
    Carriage tends to add a lot to the cost of the bigger axles as they are classed as taking 2 pallet spaces.

    Work paid e400 /e450 for a complete axle for a hudson cattle trailer recently enough .
    That was the issue with getting the axle mentioned above delivered . Carriage was going to be big so waited till a trailer was been delivered down this side .
