F700 GVCW ??

Does anyone know the gross vehicle combination weight rating (GVCW) of a '92 F700 dump, (429 gas automatic trans).
Should I be able to tow a 6K trailer loaded with a Case 580SL (18k lbs), or a Komatsu PC100, (24k lbs)? It feels a little weak, with poor accel., especially on a light grade.

What kind of gas milage should I get. empty vs loaded?

gandrimp is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I'm not sure a trailer that only weighs 6k will safely haul 18k much less 24k.
My trailer weighs 7.5k and is only rated 20k, that said, I have had 24k on it but I was left wanting more brakes.

Holden 10 ton trailer (Ameritech)

Thanks for the feedback guys. The backhoe should be fine.
Darn, I just finished restoring the trailer before I got the excavator, it's a Komatsu PC100-6, 23,500 lbs.

I can't find the GVCWR for a '92 F700 anywhere. I want to be around 50K lbs. Things get costly above 54k.


I hope I don't have to invest in another truck and trailer. This 5-6 yard truck is perfect for residential work, and the trailer was just restored, oh well.

Thanks again for your help,

dmanlyr has a great reputation on FTE.dmanlyr has a great reputation on FTE.dmanlyr has a great reputation on FTE.dmanlyr has a great reputation on FTE.
The GCWR is easy to find, at least the maximum properly equipped, it is listed in the sales brochure. You are most likely looking at a MAXIMUM of 42k as a GCWR, that is the standard on F700 thru at least the 60's to 70's.

It is also listed in some of the owners manuals.
