Scale it NEW
by: NickV

Only thing that can answer that question is a cat scale. But it all depends on the distribution of weight in the trailer. I can tell you your pretty close and it's quite possible you are but sometimes (and it's few and far between) when loads get to be that heavy the forklift drivers have a certain way of loading and it distributes the weight evenly (legally) over all points of your tractor and trailer. May have to slide your tandems this way or that but yeah your gonna have to get it weighed to find out. It's a royal pain but it's better off you weigh it then a scale house and you get a big fat ticket cause in the long run its your fault. Good luck to you and your load
