    Considering buying one of these cabs, but I am worried about the 110 pound weight.

    In real life, is this thing a pig to move around or is it fairly easy? If you have used one, could you please comment?

    Thanks,
    Phil

    It is fairly easy to wheel around. My only problem is that I am tall, and the cab is kind of short, so I have to crouch a little bit when I wheel it. And with both side handles, it is pretty easy to lift up onto stages and into the back of my pickup, even by myself. So, I guess I would say no, it isn't too much of a pig.

    Is a sore back part of the ownership equation?

    I have a 410, 2' cube, weighs 96 pounds. Whenever I get to where I'm going, there's always someone to grab a handle. Same when I leave. But, when I get home, its 2AM and its just me. :help: Thankfully I have a garage to pull into, lock the van and deal with it later, or maybe then if I feel like it. But back in the days when I had the basement suite and parked on the street... that wore me out a tad.

    Might want to think about that.

    I have one too. You could just substitite Ryan's name for mine. :)

    Usually, when I gig, I double park in front of the club so I usually don't have to wheel it too far.

    Well, since I have my Ashdown MAG rig, anything over 42 lbs seems damn heavy to me... :cool:

    two words ......hand cart.

    My casters broke within a year, pretty good actually for me and my history with casters. But the tone is worth the weight.

    Really, I have mine for about 5 years (if not longer) with no problems.

    No problems with mine either. :) They have stood up to any sort of beating I have been able to give em.
