With a pickup box and a very skinny driver it probably could. With a steel landscape bed you'll probably have 4-4,500 payload left. The 7,000 is also probably for a reg cab, gas, 4x2 with no power options or anything.

Either way he doesn't have more than 2800 lbs of lawnmowers so what's the problem?

A f350 with a dove tail easy could weigh in at 7k or 8k. Than the f350 only has 10k gross. So that leaves only 3k or 2k for everything else. That truck is now over weight. You can fight with DOT if you wish but you will lose every time. It is better to be on safe side. Plus a truck maxed out day in and day out will destroy it. This is the same reason I tell people not to put a dump bed on 350 or 3500 series trucks. Once u have that bed added you do not have then payload to carry much. I personally wish my f450 was a 550 so I could hold more. That isn't even considering safety as my f450 is way more heavy duty brakes, suspension, boosted breaks by power steering, and transmission brake. A f350 does NOT have this due to it is not designed for the same weight.

Y'all have been just considering mower. I know my ex mark laser and tracer alone would max that truck out on weight. That doesn't include my hand held, gas cans, hand tools, sprayer, water cooler, and more. Once again I would highly advise against this idea with that truck.

A lot of numbers being pulled out of who-knows-where, without even knowing what year F350 he has. Older F350 DRW trucks had a GVWR of only 10000, but they were much lighter than new trucks. A new F350 SRW has a GVWR of 11500 and DRW 13K+.

But even without knowing the numbers, let's use a litte common sense. A flatbed with a dovetail and a couple of mowers. Guys even do this with Rangers. Granted these mowers are a little bigger and heavier, but he's got a 1 ton dually and not talking about hauling a skidsteer or anything like that. Also remember that when you consider the weight of the aftermarket bed when calculating final payload, you also have to SUBTRACT the weight of the stock bed, which is probably in the neighborhood of 500 pounds.

if you look on commercial truck trader and similar sites you'll see plenty of chevy 3500's and such with 10' beds w/dovetails. It can be done with no problem.

Haha I didn't know you ran anchient equipment newer 3500 drw is 13,200 I believe chevy and ford is up to 14,000 truck weights around 7 gives you about 7k payload right off the ford site, body weights about 2-3 we could guess still gives you 4-5k which is more than enough for 2 little lawnmowers... you could put a small skidsteer or compact tractor in the thing!!!
