Awesome. It looks like somebody missed the memo - wood is heavy.

This "little" cookie was enough to lift the back end of the bobcat off the ground until it tipped back a bit, and even then the back wheels were barely in contact with the ground. Considering how many of these cookies were in the log on that guy's trailer...idiot.

and who cares if you bend the fenders on the trailer better than bending you frame aint it? i would think fenders on your trailer are a lil easyer n cheaper to fix than your frame

with your 2337 lbs. tires so add in the weight of the truck and your so called 6000 pound pallet you would have never made it home

roll-bar Bob when the log was taken off did the gap between the bed and cab close back up or stay open showing the frame was tweaked? You got any more pictures?
I was referencing the 1/2 ton frame. The hitch is suprising that it didn't break also.

average bridgeport weight Machine Shipping Weight 2095#


Standard shipping weight on a 9x48 BP should be around 1750-1950 lbs.

google it

the cnc machines are generally even under 3000 pounds unless you get up into the 4 hp power models which are huge


there is just no way in hell you are gonna put 5-6000 pounds in a half ton truck and it not be squatted out with bulging tires.

I put that much weight in our 3/4 and 1 tons and they look like there about to break in half. they all have ateast 10 ply tires with ateast 70 psi in them

i have no idea why it weghted 4,550 then thats what there scales said why would they make them weght more? they dont wanna give away free money.

those bricks were ever part of 5,000-7,000lbs. ive seen my truck with 2,500lbs of landscaping bricks and i had a good 3-4" before bumpstops. with the 5,000-7,000lbs of bricks i didnt even know my bump stops could do that flaten out on the axle.

this is a skid from home depot that said 2,356lbs on the pallet. these pictures are with my old tires the picture of the brigdeport is with D range tires.
