CARGO MAX FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the weight and size of the CargoMax trailer?
What is the maximum load capacity?
What type of grease should be used in the wheel bearings?
Use a high-quality high-temperature lithium complex wheel bearing grease such as Exxon Ronex MP or an equivalent. Never use grease heavier than 265 A.S.T.M. penetration (No. 2 grade).
How do I grease the axle and bearing?
Refer to owner’s manual. First, remove the rubber plug from the grease (hub) cap. Next, use a standard grease gun on the grease fitting located at the end of the spindle, or behind the hub, making sure the grease gun nozzle is engaged on the fitting tightly. Now, pump grease into the fitting, while slowly turning the wheel. Grease will flow out of the hub around the spindle. When the grease appears to be the new clean grease, remove the grease gun and wipe off any excess grease. Finally, replace the rubber plug in the cap.

Haw many unassembled 8’ CargoMax trailers will fit into a semi trailer?

What is the cause of the tires wobbling?
New tires. It’s possible that the new tires are out of round. Once they are inflated to the proper PSI and used for a short period of time on a loaded trailer, they should work themselves round. New tires that are still out of round after an ample break in period may be defective and need to be replaced. Call your local FLOE dealer for replacement.
