    <font color="green"> IIRc they are about 350-375. I know that I could lift mine without drums so the bare axle with carrier couldn't be much more than 250, I can't imagine the drums are over 50 each. </font>

    I'll have to agree with 8,000,000 pounds. I had to move one twice in one day. Once to put it in the bed and once to get it out. That sucker was so heavy, it caused a blow out while doing 65 /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif I had a front 10 bolt back there too

    My friend is still cashing in favors for helping move that beast /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Looks like you are the closest. It weighed in at 417 pounds. Looks like you are getting a free 14 bolt axle. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    BTW it was Mreetz axle I weighed. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Donovan !!!!!!!! Long time...



    Quick story, that is allmost related to the topic.

    Years ago,
    Dude at work by the name of Bill, was truning a set of 14-bolt dualy drums. Those drums are big, and heavy basterds.
    Just like Bill.
    Anyway, he gave the drum a hip-swing up onto the bench, and
    got his unit (yeah, THAT unit) cought between the drum and the bench.
    Ouch !

    He had to go and get it stiched up.

    His new nick name,



    Pickle, Bill-Pickle.
