Does anyone know the actual weight of an empty 1 series ballast box? I haven't been able to find that anywhere.
I weighted mine on UPS scale at work and it was 144 lbs. Don't think the scale is off by that much! Anybody else weigh one?
If those are shipping weights, they probably include the weight of the pallet and any other packaging that may have been around it.The freight company that delivered mine had it listed at 145 lbs.
Phew...I'll vouch for heavy and awkward. I just had to take my ballast box back to the dealer because the paint was bubbling...only a month old. I lifted it off my garage floor into the bed of my pickup. I think one of my...one of my...one of my...(I think you know what I'm talking about) is still rolling around on the garage floor.:lol:In the 130-145 range sounds about right. That thing is HEAVY and also awkwardly shaped, which makes it feel heavier.
The manual says 88# however I have done my share of research on the weight. I found that multiple people say there series one weighs empty around 145#. Well today I weighed mine on a deer butcher scale and it rolled in at 145# . The max weight a series one can lift is 680#. I will be adding 10 - 50# bags of quickrete (Portland) so I hope to be around the 650 mark.The box alone weighs 88 lbs and the extension (if used) is 30 lbs.
