20. Weight Savings

Surprisingly, there is little weight savings after installing the T5. The T5 is much lighter than the TH200-4R, but there are many more components involved. Refer to Table 20-1 for the details. My notes regarding these weights are old and sketchy, so they may not be accurate. If any of these weights are grossly inaccurate, please drop me a note.
