Does anyone know? I've purchased brochures in Ephemera and found the dimensions but i can't find a weight anywhere. Trying to get an idea of just how much trouble I'm going to be in.

Try a different model

Check the ephemera for the 14 series sales brochures that show all the models and colors. Then use either the custom or Superba model and the brochure should show the shipping weight. If you can't find it, I would say to estimate it at about 200 pounds with the shipping skid.

I searched all my KA lit and there was no weights listed for the 14 series. The KDS-15 has a net weight of 150# and the KD-12 was around 180#

OK, so it's not just me who's unable to find the weight... LOL   When I had the KDS54 picked up, I estimated it at 200 pounds.  150 would make sense for a built-in model.

The Wash Arm alone is about 20-25 lbs.

Come on,now, Eddie

That arm would not exceed 10 lbs. It's that heavy duty,porcelainized frame and heavy tri-dura porcelain coated tank and door that makes it so heavy. Let's not forget the motor and drain valve. Lord,a machine like that would cost a fortune to build today

I think I'm going to let this one pass

Shipping estimates were more reasonable than I expected but the reality of my current storage and working space set in. It's just not the right time.😢

This is so often the case, alas...  However, if you haven't already tried U-Ship, they may be able to help you out. I'm going to guess you're looking at the KDS14 in the Chicago area that got posted in Shopper's Square.... LOL

Wasn't the shipping

The shipping estimate from uShip was more reasonable than I expected considering the distance from Chicago (Los Angeles). I just really don't have the room to store it (or work on it) and right now I need a reliable daily driver at home. I hope someone has already grabbed it. Thanks all who helped.
