I must be getting old. The first thing that pops into my head is "man, that'll be bad for my back". (lol)
It certainly seems to have more heft than an AR XA. :o)

The Scarecrow snuck that out of the Emerald City. I swear I got a glimpse of that sitting on a table next to the Wizard's control panel when Toto pulled the curtain back.

Wow, thats like 25g extra weight.

Is the cart that light, or did the arm need the extra mass to match the compliance?
