Model COF-4070B, Engine NTC-400. Do you know what these letters and numbers represent? Thanks
CO= cabover
F= full tandem (twin screw)
4070B= model number
NTC 400 is the engine model 400 hp Most likely a Big Cam 1 The engine data plate should be on the left front of the engine near the accessory drive.

I so appreciate your reply to me. This truck's Title has no net weight, but WA is insisting on their new computer system for a weight. Thanks very much. Dish

With that platform, empty weight is probably around 15 K . Maybe a little more.

I would guess they are looking for gross weight capacity, which should be 44,000#, 34K on the drivers, 12K on steering axle. Not sure why they would want empty weight, it could vary so much, full or low fuel changes weight way over 1000#. Drive it over a CAT scale at a local truck stop, or some trucking terminals have scales too. I would make an educated guess that truck as it sits in the picture weighs 15,000#, most TransStar 2's I drove weighed 13,000-14,000#.
Seed corn company in my home town has an 80 ft long platform scale with big digital readout, I axled-out my pickup and trailer there 12 years ago hauling my Dad's old farm tractor home, made sure every axle and hitch was carrying it's fair share and no extra. Took 10 minutes to confirm what the seat of my pants had told me. First 4-5 miles I drove the tractor was about 5-6 inches too far forward, heavy on hitch, rear truck axle too heavy. Moved tractor back and it leveled out perfect!

I could not register my Transtar 2 today in WA. They need it's weight and I can't find it. It was not on the Title. Any idea of the weight of these Transtars? Thanks

Not a clue. I'm a 50 year old baby in this arena. I have the vin number, but I don't know the specs yet. I'm sure they are on the rig. Do you know where? Also, I need to order a fuel tank strap. Who is a good vendor for these year trucks? Thanks for the shout out!

Ps. I know she is an inline 6 Cummings 13 speed. Also, super low gear for like logging.
