Max braked towing weight

Postby olive » Tue Mar 10, 2015 12:07 pm

How do you find the max legal braked towing limit of your vehicle here in Spain?

Is it the MTMA/MMA (Kg) e.g. 1850 on the green vehicle log book.?

On the subject what are the other items?

Tara - I presume is the unladen weight of your vehicle. e.g. 1350

What is:
MTMA/MMA 1st E (kg)? e.g. 850
MTMA/MMA 2nd E (Kg) ? e.g. 1100

MMR S/F c/F 450/1500

COC ? That sounds like a document you would get with a new car.

You do get a coc with a new car. If its lost you can request one from the manufacturer. The details you need may be available if you google your vehicle model.

Where is dxf when you need him! :thumbup:

I am sure the figures on the green "log book" are what I am looking for. Just need the interpretation.

It is the last line ;
MMR s/f / sin frenos , without brakes ) 450 kgs & the 1500 is the weight that can be towed c/f ( con frenos) with brakes

MMa 1st E is short for " eje" = axle = maximum weight on that axle & same on 2nd eje.
