    hauled 2 tones with the truck today

    I was 2030kg empty and 4000kg loaded
    (or for the US, 4466lbs empty and 8,800kg loaded,)


    Very slow on the up hills but the brakes worked very well down,
    I was over the trucks limit of 1500 kgs (or 3300lbs) hauling max

    Heres a pic and the printout from the drive on scale.


    I had no idea the truck was that heavy when empty either.

    Cool man!

    LOL,

    I guess I should take the camera out with me some days eh?

    I had a huge load of wood the other day at the wood mill, it would have been a great shot.

    I'll show you a driveway queen.........

    Thousands of pounds!, 4 loads of mostly very heavy exotic hardwoods, almost all 9-11 feet long, (the bed is 10 feet long)

    And fully loaded it grunted up the steep driveway in "bull low" no troubles.

    :D
