Is it safe to drill through trucks?


#1

I want to drill through the skateboard trucks in order to mount my motor, I was wondering if it is safe to do?


#2

I’d imagine it’d be fine as long as you don’t drill through the axle, only go through the hanger.


#3

Depends on the size of the hole too. You don’t want to weaken the truck too much.


#4

also depends on where you drill - if it’s a big thick piece of aluminum on the edge you probably don’t want to drill there, but if it’s thin and away from the edge then I think it’s ok.

Notice how I drilled through the thin part of the metal below:

@mm6ix I think the way that @DougM did it is the only way you should attempt it. I have experience snapping trucks in half. Lol

My Benchwheel has 3 grub screws all going into the thick part of the hanger (but not axle), and it seems pretty rock solid :slight_smile:

Thanks for the replies, ill make sure to drill away from the edge.
