Question

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.

Utility Trailer Load


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.
