Wrestling Mat Weight?

Anyone have any idea how much a wrestling mat weighs? I have an in to get one for free and I need to determine what I need to get to haul the thing. thinking an open 6x12 trailer would be fine the mat is 45x15. I was thinking 1000 lbs do you think that is about right?

Holy crap! 45 x 15 where the hell are you going to put that thing? Are you opening up your own jiu jitsu school or something like that? If I had a house with a basement I would want one of those along with a heavy bag, a speed bag and some mirrors.

dude, you're going to have a real tough time picking it up unless you have the wrestling team to help. We used to use special carts to move the mats around in high school, they weigh a fucking ton.

A fucking ton? So that's 2500lbs rather then the typical 2000lbs...or 5000lbs in Canadian?

We had to roll them out for girls gymanstic meets too, they'd use them under the floor exercise mats. The upside is the girls would all reward us for our efforts (insert knowing wink and nod here).

Ok yeah I think I'm gonna pick it up on Saturday. I got a class 3 hitch so I should be good but good call I'll have the kids help us load the big mofo into the trailer and we'll be good.

So 1000 might be under I'll definately shoot for closer to 2K lbs and get probably 6 or 7 people hopefully to load it.

Funniest thing is I asked a guy from work if he knew and he was like, no more than 90 pounds. I'm like "are you fing dumb"

Thanks everyone.

Gonna have a sweet setup in the basement when I move. I plan on putting this in the corner to wrestle on, then moving to cardio equipment, (two treadmills and my bicycle on a trainer, then into the weightlifting equipment and the boxing equipment. Everything but the mat is purchased already so this will save me a ton. I priced mats out before and for good quality 12x12 it was gonna cost me $1K.

Sounds like a pretty homoerotic setup actually, but free is free, right?









Ok, I think I made my point.

Picked up the mat on Saturday night and it wasn't as heavy as expected, but it was nowhere near 300 pounds. I don't have a scale that could weigh this thing, but we cut it first so that I have one that is 25' x 13' 6" and one that is 15' x 13' 6".

The big roll was probably about 400 and the little one being about 300 I'd say. I put both in a 5x8 trailer with the extra portion sticking towards the SUV so I didn't have any hangover behind the trailer. Got them both into my parents basement back in my hometown until I move. They weren't too bad picking up and moving with two guys. We got two furniture flat dollies to roll them around which made it easy once we got it down, but the bad news was we had to get them down from the second story Gym at the high school. now that sucked!

Now getting them out of the basement is going to be the fun time.

This spring/summer I'll have one hell of a setup can't wait to move.
