Hi Can anone tell me what the weight of the common MDT are? eg FL60 or FL70 and FL80 and International 4700. close to actual empty weight would be good as i know with diferent axles and engine combos they will change.
Thanks

My FL60 w/24' box title says 15k lbs empty. It was taken from the previous title, so I am not sure of its accuracy.

That sounds too heavy to me, Doc. I dunno tho. My truck weighs 25k with empty water tanks. Seems like the conversion and the heavier truck of mine should weigh more than 10k?

my GMC 6500 weighed 12460 Cab and Chassis ft 5860 rear 3100

stretched as a flatbed looking truck before I added the box and interior, ft 6320 rear 6140

finished full of fuel, 75 gallons, ft 7420 rear 12220

ran it across a closed DOT scale house the other day, ft 7760, rear 12220

22' box 35 gallons fresh water, 75 gallons fuel located behind rear axle.

Your milage may vary

wow I just notice my rear hasn't changed with al the work I've done to it. Cool!

Hay Todd, do you think I might have gotten a bad scale or something? Mine weighed 14k on the rears with empty water tanks. It seems like mine should be more than 2k heavier than yours on the rears, shouldn't it?

I'd think that might be ballpark close, your fuel tanks and genny are towards the front, mine are all the wat to the back, but for the $10.00 at the truck stop CAT scale will weigh front/rear and give you a total all in one shot.
