Best Answer

Peterbilt makes Class 5 through Class 8 trucks, and the weight varies greatly between these models. Additionally, the application affects the weight - say, for example, you have a Peterbilt 330. Whether it's a single or tandem axle, what type of body it is, etc. will affect the tare weight.

For a tractor unit (such as the 379, 389, 378, 359, etc.), you can expect a tare weight between 16,000 and 20,000, depending on the configuration.
