Can You Haul It? Check Your Weight Limit

How Towing Heavy Rental Equipment Works

Above is an image of what a hitch rating sticker may look like on your the hitch itself. Your hitch rating needs to be greater than the weight you are towing. The Tennessee D.O.T. has specific regulations that we are required to go by for customers hauling equipment rentals. We must add the weight of the equipment and the weight of the trailer to ensure the combined weight is below what your hitch and vehicle are rated to haul. If a sticker is not located on your hitch, please refer to the towing section of your owners manual to verify your vehicle’s hitch rating.

 Although your truck or SUV may be rated to haul a certain weight per the vehicle’s specs, your hitch may be rated to haul a lesser amount. To locate the vehicle’s tow rating, refer to the vehicle’s owners manual OR the sticker located in the jamb of the driver’s side door. Locate the vehicle’s GVWR tow rating on the sticker and insure the number is larger than the weight you are trying to carry. Action Rental & Sales carries trailer rentals for every piece of equipment we rent.  Below is a listing of equipment and trailer weights which you can use as a guide to verify that you are within the tow weight limits for your rental:
