        I would think a little more, my 16 X 54 CY weighs approx 5400 LBS.

          Me too. I would have figured closer to 8000 pounds. Even if it's not it definitely wouldn't hurt to have some safety factor built in.

            I had a 20x72 CBB. 8 or 9K is about right. Wish I'd kept that lathe, a good one is a pleasure.

              My 13" x 30" Ser.60 Monarch (which really has a 17" swing) is 4600 lb.

                My trailer! I was going to use is about 9k max,,may need to rethink this. That's why I was hoping for a close approximate weight with in maybe a few hundred pounds to be sure. If its closer to 7k to 8k i should be fine.

                    Bill-I've forgotten the catalog weight, mostly going by how it "felt" on my boom-truck, but 9K trailer will be fine. Further-a typical 6K forklift might rack back and scoot it, but probably won't get it on a trailer.
