2 sturdy guy's can get that radiator into a truck but be careful how they lift. Now going up stairs is another subject. Tim. I agree with Dan, that would probably be in the 400# range.

    weight of a cast iron radiator

    I need to know whether two guys will be able to pick up a particular radiator and put it into the bed of a pickup truck. It is a 3-column, 12-section, 38" tall, 60 EDR cast iron radiator, a "Rococo" by American Radiator. Anybody know how much this thing is going to weigh? Is there some standard formula such as lbs. per s.f. EDR?

    They don't list the weight

    of these radiators in their book, but they do show the weight of their indirect radiators as about 8.5 pounds per square foot E.D.R. That should give you an estimate of how much pain will be involved.

    Radiator weight

    From experience--whichever end you pick up, that will be the heavier end.

    I agree....

    those very same radiators are the biggest ones in my home and I estmate the weight to be about 360lbs. If it was a Kewanee rad, watch out they are much, much heavier than any others.

    i have a 8 section 38" tall radiator that we just moved to install new wood flooring that had to weight over 400 lbs. It took two guys and an appliance dolly to move the thing.
    Good luck in moving, hope there aren't steps. if there are, hope the guys are well paid.

    Believe it or not I found a table listing the weight of 3-column "Rococo" (by name) radiators.

    Each leg section weighs 37 pounds. Each loop section weighs 34 pounds.

    (2 * 37#) + (10 * 34#) = 414#

    The "average" weight of of a column-style rad (regardless of number of columns) is listed as 7# per sq.ft. EDR as supplied by "American Radiator Co."

    60 * 7# = 420# so the rule of thumb seems pretty close--at least for column rads by American Radiator.

    This is an eletric stair climber. I can easily move this 445# radiator up and down the stairs by myself. Also attached is another way to load them in a truck.
