Things That Weigh 800 Kilograms

7 Things That Weigh 800 Kilograms – (800 KG Comparison)

As an enthusiast of weight and mass statistics, I know a thing or two about what’s heavy and what’s not.

800 kilograms is definitely a lot of weight. In fact, all the international deadlift records set over the years have barely succeeded in lifting half that weight.

In this article, I’ll help you figure out exactly how much 800 kg weigh and provide examples of things and objects that fall under this mass criteria.

For each item, I will briefly describe its use or relevance, and by the end, you will better understand how heavy 800 kilograms is.

Obviously, I didn’t place objects weighing hundreds of kilograms on my bathroom scale. I doubt they’ll fit.

So I did the best next thing, I’ve compiled this list based on accurate and trusted information from sources such as the Guinness World Records, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and other science and engineering sources.

So without further ado, let us start our 800 kg comparison.

Car Trailer

#1. Car Trailer

Trailers are a popular choice for people who are moving and need to transport bulky and weighty items that otherwise won’t fit in their cars or trucks.

These mobile containers are constructed to be hitched to the rear of a vehicle and can carry some seriously massive loads.

While a car trailer’s weight can vary depending on many aspects (construction, length and style), according to CURT, the average car trailer weighs about 680 to 861 kg (1500 to 1900 pounds).

While slightly off the 800 kg mark, a car trailer is still a good enough reference point.

A Fishing Boat

#2. A Fishing Boat

Fishing boats come in different sizes and weights, depending on what they’re built of. The average fishing boat can weigh between 300 to 2,500 pounds (135 – 1,100 kg).

However, the standard models that most people choose weigh approximately 1,700 pounds (770 kg). Off by 30 kilograms of our 800 kg target, but still an object worthy of being listed.

The reason behind the popularity of these mid-range fishing boats is their ease of towing. In addition, they require a less powerful engine to navigate through the water when compared to heavier models.

A Giraffe

#3. A Giraffe

Have you ever seen a giraffe and wondered how much it weighs? Well, it weighs enough to earn a spot on this list.

Giraffes are fascinating creatures renowned for their exceptional height and long necks. Earning them the title of the tallest land mammal.

The male giraffes can reach lengths of 18 feet and weigh around 1,800 kg (4,000 pounds), while females are slightly shorter (14 feet tall) and lighter at 600-800 kg.

Here are a couple of facts about giraffes I bet you didn’t know:

  • Both their neck and feet are 6 feet long, which is taller than the average man.
  • A giraffe’s heart is 2 feet long and can weigh up to 25 pounds.
A Blue marlin

#4. A Blue marlin

You’ve probably heard of the Blue Marlin before, one of the fastest fish in the ocean, maxing out at high speeds (up to 68 mph / 110 kph), with an average speed of 50 mph / 80 kph.

According to National Geographic, they are also the largest of the Atlantic marlins and one of the biggest fish in the world.

The average Blue Marlin grows to be around 11 feet (3.5 meters) in length and weighs up to 180 kg.

However, females are bigger than males by a considerable margin, with some reaching up to 14 feet long and weighing 800 to 900 kilograms.

Large ATVs

#5. Large ATVs

The first-ever all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) were first developed in Japan in the 1960s by Honda and have since become the go-to choice among farmers and outdoor enthusiasts worldwide.

There are quite a handful of ATVs types and ranges, and as you’d expect, their weight will vary and depend mainly on the size of the ATV’s engine (cc). Here is how it goes:

  • Youth ATVs (50 cc)
  • Sports ATVs (700 cc)
  • Utility ATVs (800 cc)
  • Side-by-sides and UTVs (over 1,000 cc)

However, according to Atvman, The largest 1000cc ATV model available (the Polaris Sportsman XP 1000) can weigh up to 420 Kg ( or 927 pounds).

So, two large ATVs are more than enough to equal or guestimate the weight of 800 kilograms (840 kg, to be exact).

Harley-Davidson-Motorbikes

#6. Harley-Davidson Motorbikes

My father used to own a Harley Davidson, and I remember joining him for a short ride once.

These iconic American machines are known for their distinctive sound and style, giving them a huge reach among riders worldwide.

The Harley motorcycles consist of quite the lineup, from Scrambler, Sport Bikes, Cruisers, Adventure Bikes, Baggers, Touring models, and Harley trikes.

The Scramblers (Mopeds and scooters) are by far the lightest of the bunch weighing between 120-180 kg (400-500 lbs).

However, the Touring models are the biggest and largest of Harleys, tipping the scaler at about 360 to 450 kg ( or 800 to 1,000 Lbs). This brings the total weight of two of these bad boys to over 800 kg.

The Titanoboa snake Robot

#7. The Titanoboa Robot

Prepare to be amazed, as I have an object to share with you! The Titanoboa robot is a replica of the largest snake that ever existed over 60 million years ago (during the Middle to Late Paleocene epoch).

The Titanoboa snake robot was made to mimic and better understand a natural snake’s motion. It took four years to construct to finish this project, from 2011 to 2015.

And by the end, the Titanoboa came at around 800 kilograms (1,750 lb) and measured 15 meters (50 ft) in length.

Conclusion:

Hopefully, this article has given you a better understanding of how heavy 800 kg is and what it can be compared to.
