You could haul Oprah around on it all night long.
The brass, while softer than steel, is still extremely heavy and strong, especially 1/2". The only plausible weak point would be the fender holes rounding out. But you would definitely want to reinforce those anyway if you are planning on hauling heavy equipment. As far as the ground-rod clamps, they will hold. You could possibly switch out the copper bolts for some grade 8's, and drill a couple of shallow divots in the rod where they pinch and apply tension. And don't forget jam nuts and Loc-tite.
I think the real question is, could a P-pad support Oprah?
