Smart car carrying capacity


Wrknrvr

Recommended Posts

   I am curious as to how many smart cars it would take to carry 1 ton of tools and parts. As I use a jeep yj for service work, people keep saying I should use a smart car.

 

 I am curious as to how many it would take to do this.

Too many! I seem to recall seeing 300 kg, including passenger(s), but don't quote me on that. This was for a 450 model, but I don't recall the newer models.

I have been wrong before, I'll probably be wrong again.

I don't know about weight but I know you can carry a new Splendide dryer in the back of a smart and close the hatch. Or a vari#200 dog crate and close the hatch.

 Yes I carry about 2000 lbs of tools and parts in a yj. It has been smart weighed twice just to see its total weight. The one seen on the back of our Volvo. It has a Chevy 350 in it. A sm465 granny gear transmission. Michelin Xps rib 235/85r/16 tires. Air shocks on front and rear axles. Plus a few other modifications I have done to it.

 I will soon have traveled 200,000 miles in this capacity. It has over 300,000 miles on it.

 

 How many Smart would equal this jeep.

 Is there a gvw for a yj?

 

just curious,.   Vern

Along the lines of the old CJ 2A. Load it until it breaks, unload 2 lbs, drive away. YJ's were totally underappreciated Jeep models, given they bridged a lot of new technology introductions. Carb to fuel injection, electronic ignition, etc.

I have been wrong before, I'll probably be wrong again.

If you ever saw Vern's "service truck", you'd understand.  He's got a lot of stuff in a small package.

507# payload so guess that means four smarts to do 2000# or you could pull a trailer as long as max trailer weight is 727# and tongue weight is 66# you might only need three but you would also need three trailers!
