    What are your plated axle weights just out of interest?

    I don't know if this is a silly question or not: if you weigh the rear and then the front do those two figures always add up to the total? i.e. did you weigh the whole van all at once and get 3388kg or was that just adding the two axles together?

    I would normally weigh whole van and then rear axle then deduct it from gross weight to give front.(y)(y)(y) Some weigh individual axles.

    Should just add up, provided the the access / ground surrounding the weighbridge is level with the weighing platform. ie the van remains level, whichever axle is being weighed.

    Haha, I felt silly asking the question because it seems logical that the two halves would equal the whole. I did some experiments where I made a "van" (AKA a plastic tub with batteries taped to the bottom for wheels and a bag of nuts as cargo) and, yes, as long as the other wheels are exactly level with the ones being weighed the numbers add up. As soon as the scale is lower or higher than the grounded wheels the numbers go wrong.

    Its unusual for the front axle to have more weight on it than the rear ... are you SURE your combined 'human' weight is correct? :imoutahere:

    Due to pick up my Adria Matrix 26th and I want to get it weighed but the weighbridge close to us in Wigan has closed down. I noticed you are Cheshire based so where did you get it weighed.

    Which Matrix are you buying and what spec, incl engine and transmission spec etc. I only ask since I did an assessment on Adria payloads (A-Class and Coachbuilt) the other day and found some to be fairly poor in the 3.5T weight class.

    Maybe you could help me then. Its a Matrix Supreme 670 DC 150bhp and automatic gearbox. According to the Adria site the payload is 450kg. While i'm waiting for the completion I am looking for things to fill my time and have taken to obsessively weighing everything that will go in it. I reckon all of the 'equipment' will come to about 250. That doesn't include fuel and water, missus and dog. Some people say that an amount of fuel and water will be included in the MIRO but not sure. What do you think?

    Just spotted your analysis page...impressive but disappointing. The only redeeming factor would be that I don't have the solar panel. So what would that weigh?

    The nearest public weighbridge to me is at the B&NES waste transfer station in Midland Road, Bath.

    "To use this site you must wear steel toe-capped boots and a hi-viz jacket." Well, that rules me out.
