Weight of R380

Hi all, anyone happen to have the weight of an R380 by chance? Trying to work up shipping quotes.

in a crate? Not sure of exact weight of the r380 itself, but I can easily carry it around. Can't be much heavier than a 3rd member

A quick Google search netted this:
Quote:
Without the bell housing the dry weight is said to be 50 kg (110 lbs or 7.87 stones).
From my experience, R380+LT230 on a pallet was 103 kg and an LT230 on a box pallet was 55 kg => R380 without bell housing dry weight was about 45 kg (the box pallet was lighter with about 3-5 kg).

Nah not crated, just as is. Yeah I can lift it but Greyhound max is 100 lbs. Has anyone sent one by bus?

It is going to be over what bus will permit.. Try (as I did) to tell him that both "putting in and out" will be done by you and the shipper. They have rules to protect the driver from getting hurt. It did work for me, you might be lucky..

It will go fedex oversized. Bell housing needs to go separately in my experience. 125lbs if I recall the last one I shipped.

Thanks again to all. In the end I was able to get the complete gearbox and bellhousing and even the shifter assy on top into a 37" Husky heavy duty tote from Home Despot. It fits like a glove and way easier for shipping than building a crate. Fastenal accepted the tote as is for shipping. The tote is rated for 200 lbs so it easily takes the weight. Thanks to whoever originally suggested the tote option - you da man!

Good move. I once shipped a basket case motorcycle in what was essentially a tote (military tat box) and it worked great.

Oh sorry, Jeff - you asked for a pic of it IN the tote. Haha, gotta learn to read, me. Unfortunately I failed to take a pic on departure but perhaps the proud new owner can do so on arrival. He's on here.

It fits real nice in the Husky 37" mobile job box. And now I get a reusable box instead of a pile of wood scraps.
