There are some nice 8 wheelers with rear tri axles and back tags starting to come into the second hand market now... they are very smart

3T per trip, how many trips will that save you per year?


How many time could you have been 1-3 tonne over loaded?

What would one fine cost?

600 sounds like it could save you money in a year.

Biggest issue is a standard 8 wheeler is far less manoverable than a 6 legger
