well according to Vulcan they say the wrecker body weighs in around 3500lbs. Dollies probably weigh in the 200-220lbs range plus i figure another 200lbs of tools and equipment. So lets say around 3900-4000lbs plus the chassis weight.

You might want to bring it to a scale house just to confirm though

That way you know how much you can haul.

I know this you can haul a F550 with 7500# on the back like the one that came and picked me up

you're good to go until the front tires come off the ground

I actually hauled a loaded E-450 PSD ambulance a couple of weeks ago. The f-450 performed just fine.



Side note; so a F-450 came and towed your F-550 with 7500lbs of payload? I imagined he hooked up to the front of your truck?

Yeah and the front did look like it wanted to come off the ground but it did get me to the transmission shop about 15 miles away.

I remember he had to pickup on the front tow hooks and put some boards under the tires so he could get the forks under the axle.

Just to show you how strong those hooks are. He also disconnected the driveshaft. You know we didn't want to mess up that tranny any more
