I'd have to throw it on the scale but maybe 2lbs? Its almost too much! Doesn't take any force to use it, just letting it drop is enough lol.

Had some spare time on my hands and spare pieces of metal lying around and wanted something to hold my crawlers while working on them, soooo i brewed up something. i can take the front section out and put the little metal post with flat pad in the middle post hole to hold up rig when pulling axles out. its all adjustable all the way around to fit anything from my mini's to my 2.2's. Just clamp it in the vice and your ready, i just use a velcro strap on one of the axles to hold crawler secure in the mounts, love this thing, makes working on it so much better. Thinking about adding on to the bottom to make it where i can swivel it onto it's side to work underneath it.

Needed something to hang my crawlers up and out of the way and came across these at Menards, they are cheap shelf brackets for 60 cents each and i just bent them to the curve of the tire size on each crawler. the smaller 1.9 tires i had to cut some off because too long, if i remember right these were the 8 X 10 size and you can get them in grey or white.
