I have a 2001 Chevy 2500HD with a little tipster dump insert in it. I regularly put 2 yards of topsoil in it. One of my employees says it is too much weight for the truck. What do you guys think?Thanks in advance.
Are you sure about those numbers? 9500lbs is pretty heavy for an F-350, my 1987 F350 dually has a lightweight of 6000lbs. with a max of 10,000lbs (2 ton capacity). Did the DOT guy say the truck has a lightweight of 9500, or is that what your manual says? Or do you have an extra heavy body / add-ons ?Originally posted by AztlanLC
found out the truck weights 9,500 and I can put a max gross weight of 12,500, .
correct but the chevy 2500hd trucks payload is greater than ford or dodge 2500 trucks. a 2500hd w/ the 6.0L gasser has a higher GVWR than any 1ton single rear wheel dodge or ford.Originally posted by Lombardi
2500HD's are 3/4 ton trucks.
