    Hi everyone,
    I am looking at a ford f450 dump truck. Just for financing purposes, does this truck weigh more or less that 2.5 tons? It is online, has no weight, and I am just not sure. Thanks a million!

    If you don't know that an F450 dump weights more than 5000lbs, I hope you will not be driving it!

    If its an F-450 it likely has an upfitter bed on it, whether its a dump bed or flat bed they are heavy. I have an '06 F-350, standard cab, auto, diesel, 4x4, 9' airflo dump with fold down 19" sides and with me sitting in it it weighs #10,040.

    I have an excursion with the 7.3 that is in the 8000lb range.
    My 2007 F550 has the 6.0 and a 11ft mason dump body 4x4 (19,000GVW Truck) on a dump run it's weight coming off the scale is 10,500ish... Depending on fuel and who's in it.... That F450 depending on how it is outfitted could be about the same weight..... They are heavy trucks...(Compared to pickups and suv's)
