    Does anyone have an idea how much a gutted 75 k5 tub weighs. I need to get it off the frame and am trying to plan what it will take. I dont want to trash the tub getting it off.
    Thanks
    Butch

    Butch, I did not have anyway of wieghing mine when I removed it but I would quess that it is more than 600 lbs. I can not lift it side to side or end to end unless it is balanced in the middle on a cross pole. I used two hydraulic (24") cylinders to lift it up and block it on barrels and 4" x 4" lumber. I then pulled the frame out and lowered it onto a trailer to move it around. There is a picture on the member page.
