As shown in the photo, the 1st rear axle is lifted. say that this truck has a rating of 31 tonnes with all axles active. In this case one is lifted which means the truck is allowed to carry about 24-25 tonnes load.
If the 1st rear axle is made active(put back on the road) the truck can carry another 6-7 tonnes of load.
another advantage is better traction.
This lifting and dropping is done pneumatically(the axle uses air springs).
hope you have understood why it is installed.
