A friend of mine visited my carage and asked what is the weight of my DJ251. I explained: kerb 28 cwts., 1 qtr., 4 lb. Then we checked Google and were even more mixed. :o So, could it be that the manual publishers had too many whiskies before they printed them? Or is there some more logical explination? lb I know from aviation history the size of British bombs during the WW2. Please help.

28 lbs = 1 quarter hundredweight

4 quarters = 1 hundredweight ( cwt ) = 112 lbs

20 cwts ( hundredweights) = 1 imperial ton = 2240 lbs
