The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. just wondering how far do u av 2 carry the jerry cans in selection? and how much do they weigh my m8 was sayin summin bout it?
  2. Use the search as theres sh1t loads on this topic.
  3. They weigh 22kg each and you carry them for 150 metres.
  4. oh ok nice 1 thanks:D
  5. Give it a Search, been asked before! Though from memory I thiiink its 150m and the cans weigh 22kg each?

  6. i did selection the other week and the PTI's said they are 20KG each and have to walk 150 metres with them.

    1 litre of water = 1kg

    Jerry can capacity - 20 litres

    So unless they are filling the cans with gearbox oil, have a guess!
  10. Are you a giggling school girl or something?
  11. Don't use the excuse your hands were sweating when you drop them poof ;)

    infact, if you drop them, you should be highly ashamed.
  12. Yeah thats a cracker. My favourite is "the water came out the jerry can and wet the handle so my hand slipped" though.
  13. So assume an empty jerry can is 1kg a piece, thats a grand total of 22kg for two full jerry cans :)
  14. 20kg is nothing, don't worry about it. You need to be worrying about the run time.
  15. geordie...

    I do believe that TWO jerry cans weighing 1kg each, and filled with 20kg of water each will be the grand total of 42kg......

    I maybe wrong, I only got a C at GSCE maths...
