Sure I said that above as well - not fussed that you said the same thing as OP paid attention to your comment lol.

Only asking to weigh one not all 40 at the same time lol

Borrow a neighbours scales or buy one ??

i saw both comments, just clicked reply with quote to one but my point still stands. if these weigh anywhere near 40kg roughly, our kitchen weighing scales are meant for weighing food. so unless i was planning on cooking three quarters of a cow i don't think i'd have need to weigh 40 kilos on kitchen scales:p

With a Relative density of around 2.4, these will wight around 40 KG - and I've shifted enough to confirm that's about right -- get onto the larger 900*600 ones at around 60KG and you know you're lifting something.

Can we have a 'how many sweets in the jar ?' type contest - my guess is 1750 KG.

Or, have you thought of freegle (was freecycle) - you may get rid of them for free ??

i had considered freecycle (got rid of some canoes that way) but we need a skip for other rubbish so it will just be easier :)
i've already smashed up part of a concrete path that was about 5 inches thick, plus removed 4 stumps from conifers, i'm not looking forward to having to then crack on with all the slabs.

I never meant kitchen weighing scales I meant normal ones - you know the bathroom kind that you normally stand on to see how much you weigh ie 10 stone or whatever ?

Would that classify as half a cow ? lol

edit - shame you are in Notts assuming your profile info is correct as I'm after some slabs - will post back later

A local scrap merchant will probably take them off you, and maybe even collect.
