Does anyone here know what a 36in Gannon Earthcavtor weighs? I'm looking at buying one and having it shipped via Fastenal but I need the weight. The seller doesn't have a large enough scale and I haven't found anything searching online. Even a rough weight will help get a ballpark idea.

 

For those that have or have had items shipped through Fastenal do you need to drop the item off on a pallet or will Fastenal put it on a pallet?

 

Thanks in advance

It takes me a little effort to pick up and move my 42" Earthcavator. I estimate it at 100 lbs. Did you look at the brouchure in our Manuals Section? Good Luck, Rick

I just looked it up. I'm not as weak as I thought that I've become. The brouchure says 140 pounds.

I have ALWAYS underrated my shipping weight with them!

They never check, they are a PITA most times to deal with as they have terrible tracking, and they have raised the rent!

The manual lists shipping weight of 140 pounds.

 

If you want something to make it safe and sound , pay the extra $75-100 and book a shipment on U-ship.com
