The pin or spindle on which a wheel revolves, or which revolves with a wheel.
A transverse bar or shaft connecting the opposite wheels of a car or carriage; an axletree.
A spindle on which a wheel revolves. The axles house the front and rear braking system. (In Figure 1, the axle is indicated in purple.) Figure 1. Axle (Front)
The steel shaft on which the locomotive wheels are mounted. The axle not only holds the wheels to gauge, but also transmits the load from the Axle-boxes to the wheels.
The shaft on which the wheel revolves.
Main part of the running ear. Two types: The idler/without breaks. Brake/with brakes Usually rated at 6.000 lb. capacity limit. Most states do not allow more than 1/3 of axles to be without brakes.
A horizontal theoretical or actual crossbar supporting a vehicle on which one or more wheels are mounted.
A pin or spindle about which any wheel or member revolves.
The metal rod running through the hanger, with the ends being where the wheels are screwed on.
A beam with either one (single) or two (dual) wheel ends for either single or dual tires at each end.
The circular shaft connecting two wheels.
a shaft on which a wheel or wheels rotate. The axle may be fixed in the wheel so that the wheel turns when the axle rotates, or alternatively, the wheel may turn freely on the axle
shafts that engage with the differential that turns the wheels to propel the vehicle.
A pin or shaft on which a wheel rotates.
A beam supporting a vehicle on which one or more wheels turn. Axles also house and support the differential, shafts, and wheels that propel the vehicle. Axles can be â€œdriving,â€ conveying power to turn the wheels, or â€œdead,â€ merely supporting the vehicleâ€(tm)s weight and allowing the wheels to turn. Axles are designed to suit a variety of suspension systems. Beam axles are traditional, but many vehicles now utilize axle assemblies for independent suspension systems.
A shaft on which a wheel revolves or which revolves with a wheel. Also, a solid beam that connects the two wheels at one end of the car. In the latter sense an axle is called "live" if it transmits power as in a front-engine rear-drive car. It's called a "beam" or "dead" axle if the axle does nothing but support the wheels as at the rear of a front-wheel-drive car. Adjustable Shocks Shock absorbers (dampers) whose jounce and rebound characteristics can be stiffened or softened to compensate for wear or to fine-tune a suspension for a particular application such as rough roads, heavy loads or racing.
The horizontal bar supporting wheels on a vehicle.
the shaft on which your wheelset rotates.
a central drive shaft for a drive wheel
a load-bearing assembly that connects two wheels together on opposite sides
a mechanical and sometimes structural solid beam device, which transmits torque from the engine/transmission/driveshaft to the wheels
a mechanical and structural member of the driveline that transmits rotary motion and torque from the powertrain to the wheels
a rotating shaft that connects the wheels to either side of the car
a shaft on which a part rotates
a shaft on which the wheels revolve
a support for the rotation of wheels
a pin, pole, or bar on or with which a wheel revolves.
A round, hollow metal bar on which the rear wheels are mounted on.
A round metal bar that joins a pair of wheels together.
On a bicycle it is the part of the hub that stays fixed while the wheel spins around it.
Rotating shafts connecting the rear differential gears to the rear wheels.
A shaft upon which a rotating object is mounted. Technically, an axle turns with the object on which is it mounted. A shaft which does not turn with the rotating object it holds is a spindle. These terms are often reversed in bicycle nomenclature, however. For instance, in bicycle technology, we have a bottom bracket spindle, and the wheels are mounted on stationary axles.
Connects wheels under trailers and tractors.
Spindle on which a wheel revolves. alljoint - A ball-and-socket type joint used in steering and suspension systems, which allows relative movement in more than one plane.
A transverse shaft or bar at the end of which is set the axle arm (q.v.) on which the wheel revolves.
That which attaches wheels to trailer see also Tandem, Tri-Axle
Structural component to which wheels, brakes and suspension are attached.

The bolt that runs through the wheel and through the swivel (a.k.a. "kingpin").
The part of the wheel that holds the wheel to the forks or frame of a scooter. Usually a bolt type device in the center of the hub.
A non-rotating shaft that wheels and rollers are mounted on in a conveyor system.
The steel shaft connecting the wheel to the rear end gear assembly. A car has two, one for each rear wheel. They have gear teeth on each end for connecting with the rear end running gear to the rear wheels. The rear end gears are connected to the engine by a drive shaft. The axle is used to transfer the engineâ€(tm)s power to the rear wheels.
A solid metal shaft to which the wheels of a vehicle are attached on which they rotate.
Structural component to which wheels, brakes and suspension are attached. Drive axles are those with powered wheels. Front axle is usually called the steer axle. Pusher axles are unpowered and go ahead of drive axles. Rear axles may be drive, tag or pusher types. Tag axles are unpowered and go behind drive axles.
A fixed or rotating rod or spindle on which a wheel or group of wheels rotate.
Transfers power from the differential to the wheel. Has splines at one end and a flange at the other end that holds the wheel studs.
the part at the center of a wheel; a wheel rotates around an axle with the help of ball bearings.
A non-rotating shaft on which wheels or rollers are mounted.
The axle runs through the rear tire and holds it to your frame. Rolling Thunder offers hidden or non-hidden axles in both 3/4" and 1" sizes. Hidden axles come with flush mount axle covers.
A rod on which a wheel turns or one connected to a wheel so that they turn together; a bar connecting two opposite wheels.
An axle is a central shaft for a rotating wheel or gear. In some cases the axle may be fixed in position with a bearing or bushing sitting inside the hole in the wheel or gear to allow the wheel or gear to rotate around the axle. In other cases the wheel or gear may be fixed to the axle, with bearings or bushings provided at the mounting points where the axle is supported.
