Weight of 6-1 with 5kw ST head on frame w/wheels
« on: September 15, 2018, 03:04:49 AM »
I have this 6-1 setup. I'm moving this setup via truck and need to guess what the weight is. I don't have any method to actually weigh it prior to loading it up in the truck next week.

Thoughts?

If it's similar in weight to my 12/1 - allow 450 for engine, 40 genhead, 50 base and wheels, plus extra 100 leeway for starter/fans/accessories.... about 650kg at a "zero based stochastic estimate"..... unless the tyres are filled with helium, then it will be weigh less.....

What if they are filled with lead?

Or solid Rubber?

40 seems a bit light on the gen head..... unless it has alooooomimumum windings.
Guess he is going to have to weigh it now so we can see how gets the closest guess and wins all the Jelly Beans.

  I have a similar set-up that I've had to move around, load/un-load, etc.  The engine weighs around 600 Lbs., the Generator head around 300 Lbs. and the rest around 250 lbs.  - so total around1150 - 1200 lbs.  Won't miss it by far! ---- Charlie

I'm thinking a peek at the truck might be interesting.

Tires are filled with water.

Chris,

Drive each tire, one at a time, over a bathroom #300 scale. If lucky, you wont break the scale and you will obtain four (4) weight measurements which could be added together to get a total.
