what does it weigh without water and with water?
Answer: The manual doesn’t have a weight in it, maybe you can contact the manufacturer. All I can say is you have to be in fair shape to push it around for any extended amount of time. Hope that helps.
Question: i heard that they tend to leak after about 6 months any many people needed replacement parts
Answer: I own 2 of these machines, the 1st one is 4 years old and has just begun to leak…. cleaning and drying the machine after each use is key… replacement of the belt is normal wear and tear…. $4. Belt and a leak repair well worth it in my opinion for 4 years hard weekly use for pets.
