Just asked the lads in the Labs at work, who have one. We reckon somewhere
between a ton and a ton and a half. It'll go on the trailer until you go
around the first corner if you're not careful.
That must have make the fuel consumption dip somewhat.
A 2.2 ton tractor on a decent trailer must make a load not far shy of
3 tons. I remember my Volvo strained somewhat at a 1.5. ton CVA on a
big trailer but that was a petrol engined towcar!
The interesting bit was I couldn't get the weight evenly distributed,
as it had a foreloader that was off the tractor, and had to be
threaded under it - too much weight to the rear, and very light
steering. The TD5 Disco coped though I kept under 40 all the way back
making me very popular!!!
I had a Richmond horizontal mill and it was damned heavy for it's
size, I scrapped it a couple of years ago I think that was about 1.5
I would think 1.5 is probably a bit mean for a radial arm drill, but
your 2.5 ton trailer should be adequate weight wise.
