I plan on picking up 3 tons of wood pellets with my Titan this weekend.
I have a Bri-Mar duel axle dump trailer that can hold 5 tons and has electric brakes and my titan has a tow package. My question is, can I tow that amount of weight? (3 tons plus weight of trailer) I am only going 12 miles too? Any insight from you guys?

Total weight might be 8500 pounds, so yes. You should be okay.
Make sure you have brakes working before you load up the trailer.

Easily! Your trailer is probably around $2800 lbs and then 6,000 lbs of weight. Thats under 10000, so I see no probs there, unless the trailer brakes dont work.

Without breaking a sweat! You can't put that much in the bed obviously, but you'll easily pull far more than the 9400 LB rating. You have a 950 LB tongue weight limit (yeah, I go over that all the time) so move the pellets more toward the rear of the trailer.

Have you had a pellet stove before?

They're awsome.... I had one for several years but let it go with a house when I sold it. I just moved and picked up a used pellet insert over the summer and am sooooo stoked to have it for the winter.... I've just been firing it up as it starts to get cold. The initial cost of the stove is a lot but you can't beat the feel of the heat or the cost per btu.

Make sure you get good pellets... it makes a huge difference. Also, they don't keep forever. 3 tons sounds like more than you can go through in a year. I'd never buy more than a year's worth. I usually just buy them a ton at a time.....

Here's to a warm winter....
