    Over the long run the 1Hz will be more expensive as you need to change oil every 5000km and replace injectors at one stage.

    The 1hz can do 140 km/u comfortable with no load on a level road, but with load or trailer etc it drops...

    Yes in the equation F= Ám where F is the force require to pull a mass (M), The Force will be higher if the mass is more, thus more difficult to skid. The area is not defined. So no influence then.

    Weigh bridges should only weigh vehicles more the 5t to check for overloading, I think it is, as vehicles less than that do no damages to the road pavement.
