I don't know about that, but the finger brake (probably a
similar weight) has the following listed as the shipping weight for 24"
and 36" ones:
24" 352 lbs
36" 470 lbs
At the time I downloaded the manuals from the DiAcro site, the
press brake was not included in the list of tool manuals and papers.
And now, there is even less to be found at their site.

I seriously doubt that it's "a similar weight" to their finger break!!!
The thing is a completely different animal. Here's a link to their manual.
It's surprising that they don't have the machines specs in the manual. Whoever
posted it must have left that out...
Wow! A *lot* more weight. I had a mental image of a hydraulic
H-frame press used as a press brake -- or perhaps one with leverage
similar to that on the 24" finger brake but still a H-frame
Thie is a *lot* of metal. I presume that the name implies that
you can get ones capable of bending a 16" length, or a 24" length, and
based on the tables of force needed for various thicknesses, it may be
*much* more capable.
I am indeed surprised -- there is a lot left out. Looks like it
is from 2002 -- so fairly recent.
