    How much weight do you have when "fully loaded"?

    I ask because I often see overloaded commercial vehicles

    I drive one for work. Its hilly where I live. The Transit is very touchy about weight. I try to keep it as light as possible, and its fine. I mean it will never win any races, but its good enough for a company work vehicle. As soon as I load it up though its a complete dog. Very sluggish on hills when loaded. With a little more torque, it would be a great small work vehicle.

    Our new transfer units are the e350 replacement transits. They work well for us and our crews love them

    Last firm I worked for didn't care about sending their drivers out in overloaded vans, all they cared about were sending out invoices for delivered goods at the end of the day.

    Here in the UK, the driver gets fined/punished and the firm had to pay a fine of £5000 I heard yet they still risked future fines by sending the vans out over loaded.

    I think the law should be changed some what, focusing more on the boss of such firms, preventing such over loaded vehicles leaving the depot in the first place, at the end of the day, an employed driver can only say/do so much, it's so easy for the likes of these bosses to fire you.

    Yes it should be that the company gets a huge fine and the supervisor gets another fine. That way it would be supervisors getting the sack not the workers

    I plan on picking up a Delsol and a Vehicross, but this is the one I will probably die with. I love everything about it except how the huge windshield keeps catching road debris and cracking on me. I have replaced it 3 times now, it's like a magnet for rocks.

    I wanted one but didn't want a used one. But they are very fun trucks to drive.

    Decided to take my top off, if there wasn't rain in the forecast I would of taken all of it off.

    Rumor has it that Toyota is plotting on making a second FJ Cruiser soon. Hopefully they get rid of the blind spots.
