    I couldn't give you a weight, but It has to be double the weight of my original aluminum piece.

    15 lbs? That would be just the adapter right?

    A 205 weighs a hell of lot more than 15 lbs. I should know, i just carried one about a hundred yards a couple days ago, and man am I sore. [​IMG]

    That's because I'm the devil.

    I had one shipped to me once. The adapter had to be removed and shipped seperately because it put the package over the maximum weight that UPS would accept. I don't remember what that was though - maybe 150 lbs?

    It would have to be 150 lbs. or less as UPS won't ship anything over that weight. I was thinking the t-case weighed around that range too.

    BTW, how did you package or box the case for UPS shipping? I'm just curious so I know what to expect for something that big when I ship with UPS. [​IMG]

    I was thinking 175 or so because I moved mine about ten feet once and it was heavy and I mean very heavy!

    I shipped a 208 that weighed 115 LBS, and I could handle that myself. My 205 with adapter is a lot heavier, I could no lift it without splittin a nut. I would guess 160 -175 LBS.

    When I had a NP205 shipped to me, it was shipped in just a carboard box. I don't recommend this method. I was lucky that the part of the box with my address was still intact - most of the box was not.

    I got a 205 and 350 adapter from 4XHeaven about a year ago and it was 150 lbs.

    I just weighed one without adaptor and fluid drained (as much as I could get out) and it was 165. The scale says it's accurate to within +/- 5% of the readout. I would have to say that is close to the 180 with fluid and adaptor.

    If you didn't build it yourself, how can you call it yours.......?

    That seems odd. Because mine came UPS and there limit is 150.

    the 205 should be around 135#, adapter is probably 15-20#
    With packaging, our 205's typically ship just under the UPS limit of 150.

    Is that shipped totally dry? And is that fixed yoke or slip yoke. Mine was a slip yoke which has a longer output shaft and housing, but I don't think there is 10+ lbs. of difference. Mine was also which shifter, handle, and shifter knob.
