This is a very good stab
Lister A = 176 kg
Wolseley WD 2 =110 kg
Wolseley WD 8 =130 kg

Wolseley WD is well over 110lbs, more like 110kg (as Jonesey said). I seem to remember them being over 2cwt in old money.

Don't get mixed up Kev, there's 2.2lbs to each kilo, so it's over double the difference. I would say the Petter is more than 110lbs (which it is, if it's 82kg, which is over 180lbs)

Lister A depends on weather it's tank or hopper cooled. Tank cooled is a lot lighter on its own (with trolley & tank is a different issue).
