anyone have a guess at the actual weight of my truck for towing reasons? 1987, f700, 6.6, diesel 5 speed, no pto, day cab, chassis cab, full 50 gal diesel tank, air breaks, relay need a good guess of the actual weight thanks guys
All I can tell you is that the 94 F700 that I have weighs very close to 10K.
That weight was as a chassis cab. Factory double frame, 5.9 cummins engine, 6speed eaton, 22K rated rear axle, 10K front. air brakes, full 50 gallon fuel tank. 196 wheel base.
lets just say the truck weighs between 8000 and 12000..
If you need a more exact number, you really should just drive her down to your local scale.. (I suggest you wait till they're closed if its a DOT scale) Sneak onto your local transfer station scale.. strap some garbage cans to the back. Thats how got the scale weight dropped on my 800 truck. It was a crane for its first 30 years then it got down sized to mechanic truck.. Much lighter.
I have a 1990 workready catolog and in 1990(dont see too much of a difference from 1987 to 1990) there were 3 F700's offered with that drivetrain combination. One had a 24,500 GVW, 153 WB and chassis weight was 9,170 lbs. Next was 28,000 GVW, 153in WB and chassis weight was 9,040 lbs. Last was was 28,000 GVW, 207in WB and chassis weight was 9,531 lbs. Hope this helps
