The weight of our MKIV Tank
After the hydraulic system of the tank was renewed in 2019 and the tank returned to Pondfarm, we wanted to know the weight of our machine. For this we went to Willy Verhaverbeke in Sint-Juliaan and we placed it on a big scale. The weight without sponsons, seats, rail, rubber pads was 19460kg, with the male sponsons close to 21ton. The weight of an original tank was close to 30 tons. Our tank is of course not finished yet, but we suspect that the total weight will be around 26 ton. A tough case, so the rubber blocks will come in handy when we have to hit the road again.
