I think it's just to carry additional weight, no?

(I clicked on the link but back-tracked once the annoying pop-up took over the screen.)

The truck without the tag axle would comfortably carry the full load of the truck, Jim, just not always "legally." The extra axles(s) provide more footprint to comply with various regulations and the extended tag axle does something I don't remember clearly that has to do mostly with bridge loading.

So yeah, I guess you could say it's to carry additional weight.

Back in my concrete pumping days I was more aware of that sorta stuff. Our bigger pump trucks were all unlawful in some areas when completely dry and if they wanted to travel with concrete in the hopper or/and boom pipes (very rarely and not far), they were even less lawful. Not sure just how everyone got away with having them on the road, truth be known. The po-lice were a whole lot more apt to stop the redimix trucks than the pump trucks.

I believe the bridge loading has to do with the amount of weight a bridge can handle based on the length of the truck.

Some bridges have weight ratings based on the length of the vehicle. A longer truck can carry more weight because it's spread out over a longer distance.
