    I don’t have that much experience hauling around pins, but it seems to me that it would be hard to find a heavier machine and playfield than that of Indiana Jones The Pinball Adventure. This thing is an absolute unit and was a struggle to move. Anything else out there put it to shame?

    Any Bingo machine. They are like lead...

    #4 1 year ago

    A HEP IJ or TZ. The two heaviest machines I’ve ever carried.

    #5 1 year ago

    Revenge from Mars or WoZ

    #8 1 year ago

    Ive always wondered how much that thing weighs....

    #9 1 year ago

    Lighter than many. Hobbit is way heavier.

    LTG : )

    #10 1 year ago
    Quoted from Stones:

    Ive always wondered how much that thing weighs....

    Only 275 pounds.

    LTG : )

    #11 1 year ago

    Hobbit is 75 pounds heavier than Hercules.

    LTG : )

    #12 1 year ago

    Was going to go with Hercules, because that one is ginormous, but this one probably would be the winner of this contest... The Magnificent Marble Machine!

    Quoted from Flippingr8:

    Was going to go with Hercules, because that one is ginormous,

    It's big. But hollow, not much to it. And plexi for the playfield glass.

    Lots of games are heavier. Safecracker, WOZ, etc. etc.

    LTG : )

    #15 1 year ago

    Hobbit

    #16 1 year ago

    I was told from the guys at the JJP Factory that pirates is between 350 and 375 lbs

    #17 1 year ago

    If you take size into account…

    SafeCracker

    #18 1 year ago
    Quoted from Butch2099:

    I was told from the guys at the JJP Factory that pirates is between 350 and 375 lbs

    Hobbit is 350

    About 290

    LTG : )

    #19 1 year ago

    Pinball 2000 - 360 pounds

    LTG : )

    #20 1 year ago

    I carried hobbit downstairs about 1 month ago and my back STILL hurts

    #21 1 year ago

    star trek next generation

    #22 1 year ago

    STTNG for sure.

    #23 1 year ago

    Have it along with Hobbit and would have to say Hobbit which is crazy. Those 3 sets of drop target mechs and 4 beast mechs weigh a ton put together.

    #24 1 year ago
    Quoted from jbovenzi:

    Any Bingo machine. They are like lead...

    Yes this. The back boxes alone are insanely heavy.

    #25 1 year ago

    Hobbit and Woz are good bets, but I swear the heaviest I have moved is Jolly Park.

    ..... and honorable mentions for all Gottlieb system 3's.

    #26 1 year ago

    STTNG by a mile. That thing is a tank. Never again

    #27 1 year ago

    All JJP games
    STTNG
    Hercules
    Safe Cracker
    Revenge from Mars.

    #28 1 year ago

    Jjp pins and super pins are the heaviest ive moved...

    #29 1 year ago

    Black Hole.
    Period.

    #30 1 year ago

    It is obviously the last one you lifted!!!

    #32 1 year ago

    Not the heaviest but honorable mention to Dakar.

    Not only is it heavy but the cabinet is so awkward.

    #33 1 year ago
    Quoted from WackyBrakke:

    STTNG by a mile. That thing is a tank.

    320 pounds. Heavy. Not the heaviest.

    LTG : )

    #34 1 year ago
    Quoted from Grangeomatic:

    Black Hole.
    Period.

    Couldn’t agree more with you!!
    Black Hole seemed harder and heavier to get in basement then TZ.

    #35 1 year ago

    I move all of these myself - JJP games are by far the heaviest. WoZ almost fell over, hobbit was actually lighter than I thought. Pirates - heavy!! I think it might be pirates followed by WOZ RR.

    Dialed In - heaviest standard I've felt NO question.

    #36 1 year ago

    Just moved a Banzai Run yesterday and it is pretty heavy, seemed heavier than demo man which is a widebody.

    Zizzle me timbers I just stumbled upon the who's the biggest pussy of all time thread

    #38 1 year ago
    Quoted from jbovenzi:

    '73 Bally Hawaii was the heaviest Bally bingo at 443 lbs.

    #40 1 year ago

    Hobbit, POTC, sttng, indy and demo man are some heavy pins.

    #41 1 year ago
    Quoted from Gryszzz:

    Zizzle me timbers I just stumbled upon the who's the biggest pussy of all time thread

    Gryszzz - you're so cool! You tell 'em! And your avatar is so scary too with that skeleton. well done.

    #42 1 year ago

    Any EM I've moved have always been a pain, Nip it digs into my fingers. Any JJP machine or pinball 2000 if it still has a CRT screen.
    Banzai run definitely feels pretty heavy... it's why I haven't moved it since I got it, that and it's awkward.

    Sterns are like feathers compared to those.

    #43 1 year ago

    Well after moving Road Show out I know I’ll never move another Williams wide body out of my basement. Even the dolly was sore after that bitch.

    #44 1 year ago

    Jolly park or Vernes World
    450 lbs

    #45 1 year ago
    Quoted from DennisDodel:

    '73 Bally Hawaii was the heaviest Bally bingo at 443 lbs.

    I want one!

    For fucks sake just capitalize the W or remove the period.

    LTG : )

    I stand corrected, good sir.

    #48 1 year ago

    For a standard body Dialed In is a tank. Can barely nudge it with sliders under the legs. Then I go over to play a Stern or AFMr and they move a foot with the same nudge.

    #49 1 year ago

    I reinforced my basement stairs when we brought PoTC in and there was still some serious creaking

    #50 1 year ago

    Without cheating, it's probably Black Hole. It's called that for a good reason. :p
