weigh bridge

Post by FrontBackSide2Side on Mon Jun 30, 2014 11:25 pm

I had my truck on a weigh bridge today and it said 774 kg. Does that sound right?

I must have been reading the vin plate wrong as I thought it was 1550kg  scratch

Yep, the difference between gross weight and tare weight is your carrying capacity.( which don't forget includes people, 2 chubbers and you lose more than a quarter of the capacity)

Thanks Logi Smile I'd be more worried about cab room than carrying capacity with 2 chubbers Laughing
