When your vehicle is fully loaded for the journey ahead or if you are carrying the tools of your work trade, chances are that your vehicle may be overloaded beyond its GVM and Payload capacity. You may not even know it until after an accident caused by overloading. Common items such as tools, toolboxes, cargo, bull bars, winches, towbars, fuel, accessories, passengers, recovery gear all combine to add weight to your vehicle and decrease the available payload. It is also important to note that if you buy a cab/chassis, the weight of any tray or service body is considered to be part of the “kerb weight” – therefore further reducing the available payload.
Every vehicle on Western Australian roads today has an official legally allocated Gross Vehicle Mass rating (GVM) and Payload Capacity (how much weight a vehicle can carry in both passengers and cargo in the cab and tray bed). The GVM rating is the maximum allowable weight figure (in kg’s) as specified by the manufacturer when the vehicle is fully loaded. It’s essentially the maximum legal weight, that you can safely drive at for that particular vehicle.
Pedders suspension manufacturers and TL Engineering now install GVM+ upgrades in Perth WA for selected vehicle models to assist in compliance for GVM and axle ratings. Through exhaustive and detailed testing, the Pedders GVM+ suspension Upgrade Kits have been approved by the Australian Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development.
If you’re unsure about the GVM of your vehicle or if you think that you are running your vehicle over the legal weight limit, then book your car into a Pedders dealer in Perth Western Australia for a Pedders Tow & Load Assessment. With the use of approved Pedders Tow & Load Assessment outlets, we can check the axle weight and corner weights of your vehicle to determine the overall weight of your vehicle. Additionally, we can then advise you if your vehicle is overloaded and what options are available for your vehicle.
