"Give them enough so they can do something with it, but not too much that they won't do nothing."
Toyota Camry 1994 = 3128 lb
Craftsman grills (all steel) approx 134 lbs.
I just turned in 3 this week and thats what they averaged out to be
Kohler double basin kitchen porcelain over cast iron sink 87 Lbs.
i think the best way to weight the scrap is first we need to fill it in the truck then we can weight the whole truck
It's nice when the scrap tells you
10' aluminum mesh satellite dish- 120 steel, 54 aluminum.
Wife thinks I weigh a 1/4 of a ton. Fooled her, I only weigh 499 lbs. In all serious, a square foot of 1/4 in. steel weighs 10 lbs.
275 gallon oil tank ,300 pounds.
Google first ask questions later!
[QUOTE=Mechanic688;205466]I take that was without the motor??[/QUOT
There was no motor on it, unfortunately.
I still have the arm because I need to crack open the box. That's going to be maybe 3 more pounds of aluminum. I also just tossed the cord in with my other cables, so that is not included in the total.
As an inspector, here's a ruff guide to what things weigh that shouldn't be in loads, Yet some peddlers and vendors alike try to slip things buy all the freegan time. Then often enough of times get pissy when they're asked to put the following back on the truck or take the deduction.

You have no idea, I've had guys come in with safes, that they *rolleyes* didn't know the combo, graciously slide it off the trailer, door side up. So, I tipped it to just watch water start pouring out.
Also, dealt with the guys that have sat there and attempted to argue that the concrete filled 4 drawer filing cabinets where solid metal, hence the weight. *facethud*
For the most part, most of the peddlers are nice, talk to them with respect, give them the option of take it with them or deduction and everythings cool. But its the douche canoes that really test ones patients. Trying to take items out of the pile that a previous person dropped off, while stating the multimillion dollar mega shredder / pickers won't reclaim items.
But I basically deal with the big boys now. It's nothing to see 800-10,000 lb deductions on fubar loads.
3000 watt computer UPS inc batterys = 46kg, about 100lbs.
The batterys weighed 15kg, about 33lbs. That's the same as a 330 CCA car battery. About NZ$10 worth.
I carried it all 20 city blocks in a sack, on my back.
