    Get a curb weight on your truck then load a few pallets on and drive down to the truck stop... grain elevator... wherever and get a gross weight... subtract and divide.

    Are you concerned about overloading your truck? I carry 20 4way dbls on my F-450, pulling a trailer w/ a Bobcat. Seems to do the job.

    You can always load it and weigh it. Then take some off if overloaded. Find a rock quarry or cement plant or feed scale for trucks.

    Thermwood, Doesn't Nevada require a Air Brake endorsement and that endorsement is only available for Class A & Class B? licenses? I have run into problems over here in Carson with a non CDL truck with air brakes?????????? Do they allow it in Fallon?

    Usually in the 400 to 450 lb. range. Don't need no stinking scale though, just load them until the mud flaps drag and then take a few off.
    LT: That is a 14' bed. the 190" wheelbase is a perfect fit for it.

    Swinger, saw a demo at the Calif state meeting. Lets see...the last guys that I saw test drive the 1K machine there said "Dean is not going to like me when he finds out that I canceled my hummer bee machine.

    Me thinks Mark Brown sold lots swingers at that show, those silly keepers.

    P. S. $30,000 1k swinger at the show..... no brainer!
