Re: Bee Truck
An F-450 has a GVW of 16,000 lbs. The truck weighs about 7,000 lbs, I think. 80 hives at 100 lbs each is 8,000 lbs. The trailer that I pull is registered at a GVW of 9,900 lbs and carrys a 4,500 lb Bobcat. So you are probably right. I may be cutting it close at times. But not as close as lots of pickups hauling a goose neck trailer or those humongus camper trailers. Which, for some reason, aren't required to cross the scale on major hiways.
