To meet the terms of the contract, the weight centerline shall be marked by the dealer at the end of the pre-delivery process. The steps are:

  1. Measure the wheel base (front axle center to the rear axle center). Call this WB (Wheel Base).
  2. Weigh the overall tractor. Tractor must be set up as delivered with a full tank of fuel. Call this TW (Tractor Weight)
  3. Back the tractor off the scale until the rear wheels are off the scale and the front wheels are on the scale. Call this FAW (Front Axle Weight).
  4. Time to do the math.
    1. Divide FAW by TW. This number will be less than 1.
    2. Multiply this number by the wheel base. This is the distance, from the rear axle, forward to the weight centerline location.
    3. The formula for the WC (Weight Centerline) from rear axle is: WC=(FAW/TW)*WBWB
