Can anyone enlighten me. I run a 3500kg van towing a box trailer of 3000kg and my train weight is 6500kg. So far so good. I got weighed a few weeks ago, and I was well below the 6500kg limit, but the van itself when put on the scales was 3900kg (with trailer attached) and each axle was below it's maximum.
My question is - seeing as the axles were not overloaded, and the gross train weight was not exceeded - was I officially overloaded with the van.
If anyone is in a position to provide a skilled, professional porter in the above postcode region tomorrow please email me.
We would require assistance from @10:30, through to @13:00. More than happy to pay a proper rate as, well, lets face it, just 2.5 hours aint a lot is it!
Quality is the most important factor, not the cost.
Hi. Does anyone know if you need to do CPC training if you sometimes pull a trailer behind a 3.5t van?
We have an O licence, and have the tacho in scope when the van and trailer combination exceeds 3500 kg (so when either van or trailer or both are laden - as when both are unladen total is just <3500 so out of scope)
Not sure if we need to bother with CPC training?
