My 1800 had to be around a ton. I moved it using a small lift gate truck
that had a 2000 pound rated lift.
It could not lift it. I had to use a jack and blocks to help it up into
the truck. It was hard to even roll it around
the floor with two people.
I have many SLT card spares for mine, probably a few thousand or so. I
don't think they are very hard to find.
Al scanned all of my paper docs awhile back. I believe the ALD's were
part of that. I can check to see what I have
if needed, I still have all of the paper.
Dentopedalogy is the science of opening your mouth and putting your foot in it.
I've been practising it for years.
