Ford Transit weight - for info.

Recommended Posts

These things often crop up and as I'm fresh off the weight bridge I thought I'd stick it here for future searches!

 

Ford Transit MK7 T350. Single cab , one stop tipper (factory ally sides). Full tank of diesel and 95kg driver, no tools =

 

2430kg. Accurate to withing 10kg I am told.

This is a good idea - REAL weights for real vans.

 

That leaves the 'typical' tranny with roughly a 1 ton payload - (without tools!).

 

That is approx. 3 cube of chips or one honest cube of beech logs.

 

Best make frequent trips to tip off then.

I think the steel sides version would be just over 2500kg. Double cab with steel sides has got to be 2700kg I'd of thought. It doesn't leave a lot of legal payload!

Yup, good post. I've kept meaning to weigh mine. Just bought another trannie, ex-council & fitted with an axle weight calculator which might have to go...:blushing:wouldn't want to incriminate myself.

no high sides? Thats just a standard back?

 

My old LDV had a payload of 1.5t I think.

 

Our steel side LDV went on the weighbridge without driver and half tank of fuel at 2100kg

No high sides. Just standard factory 'one stop, one way tipper'. Full tank of fuel and me.

Double cab, new steel back, ali sides and cowl, normal saws, climbing and rigging kit, dog and two kids and child seat (equivalent to a slim groundy). Half full of diesel.

2800kg on the bridge last week.
