An Ultra 5 I can pickup and swing under my arm with one hand just about.
Probably weighs a shade less than the stated 25lbs (unless you fit a Symbios
card and 2 SCSI drives then it weights a lot more! :) )

An Ultra 60, I can easily see that being 40lbs at least mine feels like it.
Mine is full of RAM and has 1.6" height SCSI drives in mind you so it's not
surprising it's a bit weighty :)
