Default hauling question

I am looking to get some patio block 36 of them and was wondering if anyone knows if the pt would handle 850lbs of block for 10 miles or if two trips would be advised. I looked for something similar but haven't found anyone who has hauled this kind of weight before

I am planning to distribute the weight evenly by dropping the seats and laying it out over the whole rear end

i think if you can fit 5 people weighing 200 lbs apiece, then you should be able to transport 850 lbs plus yourself.

You can drop some weight by removing the rear seats also. Try to keep 60% or a little better in front of the axle. Buy yes you can haul this.

Add air in the tires to 40 psi before you load up. Tell us how you make out.

well I aired up the tires to 40 psi and took out the seats but by the time I got a little more than half loaded the rear tires were close so I did the load in two trips to be safe. got the block all home and now I get to dig and set them yeah!
