HI

Please can you tell me the total weight of a Transit van 8S T280 as it would be empty.

Thanks

The weight of the van as if you were to buy it new, just say it was empty but with fuel. would the weight exceed 1200

thanks

Roughly, the max gross weight is 2800kg, the payload is roughly 1000kg so an empty van weighs roughly 1700-1800kg :)

That would be about right, as I took mine on a weighbridge last week, and it weighed "empty" 1920kg. It does have 6 more seats than a van though :D

If you are thinking of the current model, you can view the official Ford figures here, although the brochures are from April 2008 so they don't fully reflect current production:

'69 Mk1 V4 :) >> '76 Mk1 V4 :) >> '84 Mk2 OHC :wink: >> '97 Mk5 Banana :D >> '09 Mk7 TDCi 8)
The van in front is a Transit. It might be my Mk7 - follow the trail of rusty water: Diary of an Ordinary Van

i have a question sort of related to this topic,
i was wondering since the vans weight is ~2000kg does that mean i can drive one with a standard N.I. driving licence, i.e. the section on the licence that says "passenger vehicles with up to 8 passengers and below 3500kg"

im renting a van to help with a move on monday and im starting to get a little worried

Yes a transit 260 has a max gross weight of 2600kg so you should be ok :)
