Default Can my truck handle it?

I need to pickup 48 80lb bags of concrete. I was wondering if that plus a pallet would be to much weight to put in the back of my truck at one time? I could split it into 2 trips but would like not to if I can.

I don't know much about payloads and all. But you're lookin at 3,840+ lbs. The payload is around 1500 max. I would do two trips buddy before you mess somethin up.

How far are you goin? flat? hills?

I would do it in 2 trips, or get a trailer to haul them on one of the 2, but I would most certainly not put it all in the bed of the truck.

Thanks

No way would I put that much in my bed. I had 1880 of coal in my bed once, it handled it fine no problems at all, that said I have never put that much in again. It did squat it down. You are talking 2xs that amount. I would definitely do 2 trips or use a trailer.

Different than a load of coal you will have all that weight in a very concentrated area. I saw some one with a pallet of wood pellets break a 1/2 ton ford in half. It was probably 10 years old so rust may have been part of the problem, but it literally broke the frame in half. It was something to see...but I wouldn't want it to be me.

That's what I thought. Even 24 80lb bags would be 1900lbs or so so maybe 3 trips to be safe. Not sure how much the pallet weighs either.

Also, its only about a 3 mile trip at most and its flat.

My dads 2007 f150 can hold about 1800lbs and he is going to help. Maybe that can make it 2 trips.

at some point, the weight will be almost all the way off the front end & you lose steering

ask me how it feels to use a 1/2 ton long bed pickup, to haul a bed height load of soil composed of sand, silt, and clay, scary ride !!

borrow a trailer or rent one, Thats waaaay to much weight not safe at all! if a trailer is'nt an option i'd make 2-3 trips out of it. or just have it delivered.

It's 3 miles? Lol. Make 2 trips. Maybe even 3. Pallet weighs less than 50 lbs.
