Chandler & Price Paper Cutter - New Series

I have purchased a C&P paper cutter that will need to be shipped to me; however, the seller is telling me that it weighs 3000 lbs which makes the shipping cost $700+.
Although it is cast iron, I am trying to get a better idea of the weight of one of these beautiful cutters. I have no Model number, just the picture attached.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

I have a similar question—what is the weight of a 30” C&P hand-powered cutter? Has anyone disassembled one?

The 1923 ATF Catalogue list the shipping weight of the 30” C&P cutter as 1551 lbs., so if yours is the same model I’d figure around 1400 lbs. uncrated.

According to the C&P company’s serial number list you have a 23” lever-operated cutter that was manufactured in 1963. It takes a 3/8” thick knife.
