    Hi

    You should take it too a weighbridge, there are plenty about. There may have been modifications ie equipment put in or take out after it left the manufacturers.

    There should also be a label or plate somewhere giving you your weights.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the advice. I was just after a general figure for the weight, nothing too accurate. Can't find the plate and have no specification book to go with the Champ A551.
    Seem to think it's about 2,500kgs?
    Does anyone have a book to let me know the weight, standard A551 2.3D?

    the makers stated unladen weight is in the chart below. second column of figures.

    mass in running order is the unladen weight
    this includes 90% tank fuel and 75kg for driver so just deduct 75kg for driver and around 75kg for fuel and that will give you the weight.

    for legal purposes you must include the fuel and driver weights.

    you'll find the full spec HERE

    hope this answers your question,

    john.
