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?
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.
