Re: Max Weight

Just keep filling until it rubs then take one slab out.  lol
seriously though shouldn't there be a weight plate either on the door pillar or in the engine bay ?

There is a plate mate cheers. Was just looking at the weights of the slabs and sand online and was wondering if i can do it in one run. Was just asking to save me running down the stairs for a look big_smile

Re: Max Weight

you'll need to know your gross weight and then your (starting empty)tare weight .......... subtract and the answer is your payload............. remember you and all fluids (full diesel tank and any passengers to) are all to be included in your payload...............
however is your van a 900 or like mine an 815 as I'm pretty sure those designations IIRC are equal to your payload in KG capabilities depending which van you have..............

Re: Max Weight

I think turbo.... HDI vans are 900kg and 1.9 non turbos are 815Kg ............. It'll notice it's got some work to do and will be a tad slower on the climb than usual...........

you'll probibly get a little lea-way with plod so long as it's not obviously over weight and on it's knees ..... pump tyres up (bulging gives game away) and don't have all weight on it's Ar** spread it about ............


I'd be inclined .......get sand up front and try get everthing even and no further back than in line with axle if possible ........................... But you already had that in mind

Re: Max Weight

More worried about my van than Plod  tongue  I put 2 tonne of sand in the back of my convoy once. As its two big sacks and loaded with a forklift it had to be all up the back over the axle. I had almost no steering for the trip home.

Re: Max Weight

I had more than that in a 1.8 Berlingo once that was fine, wasnt even on the bump stops, as to if its OK just check the condition of your springs first, if rusty and corroded I would say dont, unless you dont mind spending an afternoon putting in new ones.
