    I have a international 4300 with a big tool box behind the cab and a 12' dump body with fold down sides. The body of the truck is very heavy duty. I think my weight is 14,500 empty.

    I would like to get another international truck but need to get the weight of the truck down. If I do a 12' aluminum body with no tool boxes, how light do you think I could get the truck? Is a 12,000 lbs empty weight a possibility?


    Here is a pic of my current truck. I know it needs a paint job!!!

    The cab and chasis weight should be on the door tag.

    Shorter Cab to axle, flatbed with wood sides or aluminum bed should get you close. Don't know the difference, but aluminum wheels might help. Striped down truck will too.

    engine, rubber, wheels, frame length, transmission are all going to have a big effect on weight.

    Why are you asking here, call up your dealer and they can tell you

    Single axle?

    We looked at one this weekend. Would be nice too e machines. It was a 25999 truck.

    I want a hook lift with a flat bed. But they're 3-4x the cost.

    He'll me and dad looked at single axle semi with a equipment trailer and dump trailer.

    There's so many different combinations available it's thought to choose lol
