I'm not certain of the weight mate but i really do think it's more than 40kg's - it could be that it's just awkward to pick up and seems heavier - somebody correct me if i'm wrong please:D

I lifted mine on my own when I bought it, but it's a struggle.
Probably more to do with size/shape more than weight though

I would guess at about 40-50 kilos with the wiper motor etc.
