Sorry if this has been covered before but I couldn't find it searching.

Does anyone know the approximate weight of a factory JD wide front end on a 3020/4020? I mean the whole thing including the hubs (wheels removed). I'm wondering how difficult these are to move around once removed. Could a couple of guys move one around or into the back of a pickup?

Also, does anyone know the weight of a heavy-duty Roll-o-matic without wheels?

Maybe two BIG guys if they don't get something pinched.

True story. I sold a Swartz wide front end complete and helped the guy stuff it into the back of a Yugo ! It did stick out some. 2 guys should have no problem with a pickup.

I would think it would come in about 300-400 pounds, pretty tough for 2 guys to move around.

How about a heavy duty rollomatic? Anybody have a guess as to what they weigh with hubs?

I would think a Schwartz would not weigh half as much as a Deere front

I am not sure about a 3020. But I know a wide square tube front for a 620 weighs 500# plus. It is
twice the weight of the Swartz axle I replaced.

Take some tools with you and take it apart..my guess it will weigh close to 900 lb with wheels on it. Wheels and saddle will come off easy, spindles with hubs will come off easy too..Then 2 guys can load it..

Two guys could comfortably lift a Roll-O-Matic into the back of a pickup (around 125 to 150 pounds without wheels?). For two guys to load and unload a WFE into a pickup without getting hurt, I would arrange to use a front end loader, a forklift or a skid-steer loader.
