Default PLEASE - Broken Axle Advise

Good morning all,

I have a International dt4700 6 wheeler straight truck with a 25ft box body. I haul approximately 15 tons of feed everyday. I broke the left axle last week Friday under load on moving off, so I replaced it. Today it is loaded again and going over a hill and I felt when the truck neutral up, so I stopped and pulled the rear hubs I realized that the right axle broke.

4 questions:

Is it possible that when the left axle broke first it could have damaged the right one, causing it to brake now?

Also, what would cause my axle to brake in the first place?

Would adding a drop axle alleviate this problem?

What would be your recommendations given the truck and the weight?

Please truckers and mechanics I need you expert advise urgently, its frustrating.
