    I have been hauling 40K lbs +/- on pintle hitch tags for a while, it's safe.

    I'm around that. The dumptruck I use now is a little short so the loader needs to be on just right. Going across scales the total is just below 74,000 if the loader tracks and bucket are clean. From the way I read the bridge laws I can legally scale this the loader 6 inches farther forward than I usually set it. It actually handles pretty well and stops real good with the triple axle brakes.
