B Model Weights

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, im sure a few of you have run your trucks across a scale a time or two and im just looking for a rough estimate of what a tandem B Model weights vs. a single axle. I want to get a feel for what it takes to haul or tow one of these. Also, what is an approximate width? Thanks

when I bought my truck (s/a B61) my friend hauled it home for me with his goose neck trailer behind a Powerstroke dually,& you couldn't tell the truck was behind us,I don't know the exact size of the trailer,but I can find out some more info,& the towing capacity of it if you would like

Pulled a B61 home last fall, never got it across a scale but SWAG says about 12,000. This is a 3 axle with camelback, 180hp 673, 18 speed Quad,Budd wheels and only 6 tires.

My B421 is under 8 feet (96in), closer to 90in on the front axle (hub to hub) The whole thing will fit on an 8 foot trailer, with room to spare.

Just for my own curiosity I put mine over the scales a couple of months ago. It came in at 6,990 kgs or 15,340 lbs. Mine is a B61 673 duplex box with bogie drive axles, 13 leaf camelback, prime mover and very little diesel in the tanks. No spare wheel. Photos available in my gallery. Rod. :thumb:
