    Yeah, it should be 550lbs with pallet... standard pallets weigh about 32lbs each what Forward Air told me... and if the person made a crate or something themselves, it might weigh more.

    I'm sorry, I forgot I had a 5 pound pallet under the thing! It should read:

    <font color="red"> D60 From lockout to lockout, tierod to yoke: 544 LBs, and one 5LB pallet...... OH and 1 LB of metal strapping.....</font>

    Sorry, I really didn't think that was that serious!

    Actually no, The pallet was rather thin, but it did just fine! YOu see, I hate paying for a 30lb pallet if I don't have too.... It cost me $160 already, and it was coming out of my pocket by this time, so the use of an extreamly thick pallet would be usless.....AS long as the pallet holds it while it sits on the ground, the forks pick it up right under the axle, so to be completely honest, the pallet weighed 5 LBs! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
