Local weigh bridge will give you an idea of total weight, just ask the Traffic lads or local quarry

The nearest weigh bridge to me is near oranmoreover 30km away, there is a quarry not too far away I am not 100% if they are still open.

If your planning on going to a quarry ring them first because some quarrys dont use bridges as there loaders have built in scales and printers ...might save you a wasted journey.
