Pedders Suspension weighs in with its Weight Matrix.

Pedders Weight Matrix goes live news

PEDDERS Suspension has introduced a free service on its website that allows customers to determine the weight of their vehicle once aftermarket accessories (bullbars, winches, tow bars), passenger loads, general cargo and towing loads are taken into consideration.

The Pedders Weight Matrix “calculates the weight of the vehicle referenced against original manufacturer specifications and provides some information on the critical impacts on weight”.

Once all of the accessories, weights and loads are listed – via an easy-to-use interface – the software then spews out the results that are separated into four key metrics: vehicle load; remaining capacity against the original Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) limit or Pedders GVM + upgrade limit (if applicable); estimated additional braking distance; and weight balance shift (rearward or frontward).

As the Pedders website states: “Pedders has developed this world-first Weight Matrix (tm) software to assist in understanding your vehicle weight, each of your tow and load ‘scenarios’ and most importantly the critical impacts of weight.”

The entire process only takes a couple of minutes – we tried it and had no dramas. The only catch is, after you enter all data, you then need to sign up to Pedders before you can access the results.

Sure, you could just duck into the closest weighbridge, but the Pedders Weight Matrix provides much more information than a vehicle’s overall weight.

Give the Pedders Weight Matrix a go at After all, carrying additional weight has a huge impact on a vehicle’s overall performance and safety.
