Utility Trailer Load
 
I have located a compact tractor that weighs 2,400 lb. The tag on my smaller trailer indicates that the "GROSS" load rating is 2,500 lb.
Am I correct in assuming 2,500 lb. is the maximum load this trailer is rated for?
I realize most equipment is under rated for liability purposes. http://ytforums.ytmag.com/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

to me, Gross weight is the trailer and load combined.
Tare weight (or Net weight) would be the Gross less the weight of the trailer itself.
