For example, excavator have 25t + 10t trailer = 35t, this is so real

Eduard_Kenobi, Yes but excavator 13t is also so real, as long as we don't know the model of the excavator.
Where do you have the 10t weight of an empty lowboy/flatbed/ trailer, I could not find it anywhere?.

This is a good discussion, but I need hard facts, no Mumbo jumbo talk of what you think but links which supports the info.
I don't want weight info beyond the cargo, no trailer weight, just cargo weight and facts with links.
We can use 10 pages up and down of what we think but I can't use that.

jarvik79, I think that overweight in this matter also means wideload and is used as a category to anything using lowboy. Just my guess.

Thanks jarvik79, especially for the last link, I had a hard time finding the dead weight elsewhere. ;)

"dead weight" is also known as "tare" weight, or "unladen weight" (also "u/w").
(well, technically they're not quite the same, but in the context of trailers they're synonymous)

(edit: added a missing critical word that made the 2nd line actually make sense, lol)

The excavator look very close to a Hitachi Zaxis 250 (the cab is identical).

Trident, you're absolutely right.
And here we are, official specs from Hitachi:
http://hitachiconstruction.com/assets/f ... 250HT5.pdf
Operating weight: 24,720kg.

Even the smaller ZX210, that has a similar look, is 21t.

From my perspective, it would look like, 25t is correct, and 13t is not.

p.s. (does someone want to QA this? Or do we need a seperate thread in Bugs? or split the topic?)
