      What do you expect? They said it VARIES… i.e. they don’t know how much this exact one weighs because but depending on the contents those baskets can weigh anywhere from 200lbs to 900lbs. (Can you tell me how much your shopping trolley weighs when it’s full of groceries? I’m guessing you’d say it varies).
