hello again everyone
   this morning I am looking for an educated guess regarding what this recent purchase might weigh empty.  The tare weight doesn't appear anywhere on the truck and from experience I am guessing it lies somewhere between 13 and 20 thousand pounds.  FYI- it's a ten wheeler, single frame, 12'steel dump body, gas engine (391), duplex trans. air brakes, steel daytons, no pintle.   GVW is 43,500#   thanks guys.

that's hard to guess... because its a dump truck.. so many variables..

heavier than a bread box is my best guess...

got any truck scales nearby...   some farms have them also... depending on where you live..

anybody nearby got a set of portable truck scales??
