Hi Mike.
The bed on mine is 1000 mm, the motor, pulleys and countershaft overhang the length slightly. At a pinch you "might" turn 600 mm between centers. Barely!
I would estimate mine weighs in the region of 200 kg

Cheers Phil

Overall length on mine, including the gear cover, is 44" (112 cm). I don't know the actual weight, but I think Phil is pretty close, just from having moved it a round a few times.
