    Yes, that's a class A combination. 17,500 + 19000 = 36500, which is way more than 26,001 lbs. That's the minimum weight for a class A combination.

    So it's not a class b? An f550 is smaller than a f650... ####...

    If the trailer's GVWR exceeds 10,000 it is not Class B

    Its straight up Class A

    Combination vehicle.

    Trailer GVWR is excess above 10,000 pounds. (NOT gross vehicle COMBINATION weight, just the total trailer weight, your 19000 pound bobcat does not help)

    Class B is already "Included" in those who hold a CDLA.

    HOWEVER, your vehicle brakes being liquid driven you WILL have a NO AIRBRAKES restriction on your CDL A if YOU TESTED with NON air brake vehicle. It will NOT be legal for you to touch a vehicle with airbrakes period.
