Kangoo Roof Load


What is the maximum load I can carry on my Kangoo's roof rack before it falls in?

My roof rack is by Hardcastle. See here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hardcastle-A.../dp/B00ICLUQR6

They specify 60kg as the maximum.

I'm transporting a number of wooden posts about 400 metres in multiple trips.

Each post weighs about 20kg. They're 3.75m long and 12cm in diameter but they're dimensions and weight vary. If I took 3 posts and the weight was (unbeknownst to me) 70kg, would that spell the end to my car?

Thanks !

Re: Kangoo Roof Load

Wouldn't a set of bathroom scales be a much better option to collapsing the roof bars in?

Albeit there's sure to be a safety margin built in it only needs a pothole or bump in the road to push the roofs bars over & above the limits
