54 vs 73 weight observations
« on: January 02, 2015, 11:28:07 AM »
Whilst I had a 1980 54 in for service, I weighed it without the lid on (harp lid on) just out of curiosity and it weighed exactly 5 stones which is 70lbs. My 1980 stage weighs 91lbs without its transport lid. So yes, thats 20lbs difference in weight between a 73 and 54.

Just wanted to note this down for the group as it may be useful in some way!

I also noted that the 54 doesnt have the front or back pieces on the harp frame which also helps reduce weight, nor does it have a centre screw plate underneath for leg braces.

The output still says input too!

Happy new year!  :P
