    I hate to be "that guy"... but if that's the actually the GVW that thing would be so overloaded when full.

    * On edit I see you're in Canada, so I'm thinking it might be kilograms not pounds like is posted, which would make more sense.

    I know, but I'm thinking he might mean kilograms; as I would think that truck would weigh not much less than 19,500 pounds empty. Unless he is simply stating the weight not the GVWR. I'm guessing things must be different in Canada, because as another poster stated something isn't right with those numbers.

    I'm not trying to be a jerk or "call out" the original poster on anything, just kind of curious. I actually think that looks like a pretty awesome setup.

    Only because I'm really bored, I googled Kenworth t170 GVWR. Copy and past from KW website "A straight truck in a 4 x 2 configuration with a gross vehicle weight rating up to 19,500 lbs,"

    When fully loaded with salt that truck would be a DOT officers dream around here.

    They would be having the same dream here, at least in my area.

    "What are 25ft of machines"......that question felt like a jeopardy answer.

    I also took specs off of Kenworth site when i posted original. It was installed by dealer which usually do within legal limits. Gvw and axles weights may be off of actual unit. This truck has been through several mto stops, and not had issue.
    Pals landscape: in new Jersey pricing is much cheaper than canada. I have bought many trucks and equipment over the years in US. It is cheaper once you learn to jump through hoops to bring here and how to import.

    It looks like a beautiful truck and I know it would make an awesome setup, but I just don't see how it could legally go down the road fully loaded. I'm thinking whoever spec'd this thing messed up bad. The tare weight of that truck with the spreader has to be AT LEAST 14,000# meaning it could only haul about 5,500# of material. (legally)
