I think anything further is futile. Round and round and round.
Ultimately the stamped GVWR on your door will tell you what the gross weight that can go into that dump.
Ive run a dump in my lifetime, make that two different kinds. And to be honest with you, the weight situation was not that important. With the exception of one bridge that was weight restricted we just fill it, weight at company scale so boss man knew what amount of materials buying for that job. And go.
Well when the atlas gives you over 40 on the tandems and not specified on the steer, that pretty much throws the 46,000 out the window.
Florida allows 44,000 on the tandems, would they be stuck at 46,000 too?
I mean ofcourse you have to abide by the fbf on interstate but on state roads I believe it’s 64k from what I’m gathering but I’m trying to figure out how they get that number on tandem axle I’m reading up on some Type of grandfathered law that’s why I’m hoping someone who drives dumpntruck in Georgia would chime in lol
It was 64,000 when I ran a tandem dump truck. It’s been a few years but I don’t think it’s changed. If the quarry overloaded you they would make you go back and dump some off to be legal. The asphalt plants I went into loaded on the scales so they wouldn’t overload you.
