PostSubject: Picked up a new toy today   March 6th 2013, 1:47 am

Just brought it home today,


Who says a 6.5L can't tow?


Officially the heaviest load I've pulled with a 6.5TD and don't think I'd want it too be heavier. In the bed of the truck is a 12" trenching bucket, 24" HD bucket and hydraulic auger attachment. TLB has a 36" rear bucket on it.

Thanks, Yes, No and Yes.
At some point in the next year or so I'm going to have to install a new septic system at the house. The concrete side walk, rear patio and front porch(concrete&block) are all cracked badly and will be torn out. Then I'd like to dig up around the house, water proof, re-tile, insulate etc. Starting to look at rotoary lasers so I can put in some drainage tiles across the yard. Then there is a barn/shed project I'd really like start.

Tractordata.com listed it at 12,519lbs 310A
Trailer is a 24' 14K GVW that weights approx 3,000lbs so we were a little over weight but kept it at 55mph or less. There should be almost 1K lbs tounge weight with weight distribution bars as well so that can be taken off the trailer weight.

So GCVW would be something like this,
backhoe.........12,500
trailer..............3,000
truck...............8,000
_________________
total 23,500 lbs+

We had to merge uphill while accelertating and it was rough.
100% throttle, 10psi boost, 1200+* EGT, 2500 RPM and about 43 MPH was all she could muster until we crested.

Don't forget the extra buckets in the bed. There's another couple of pounds.

Yeah, that's why I put the truck at 8K with cargo and two passengers.
