According to their respective manuals online, the Nova Galazy DVR is 450 lbs, and the Laguna Revo 2HP 18/36 is 427 lbs. Shipping weights are 529 lbs (per Rockler) and 452 lbs (per manual) respectively.

I have the Galaxy, and can confirm, unless you have an engine lift, hydraulic lift table, etc. assembly is best with help.
BTW, 79 lbs seems a little heavy for the crating & packing, but it was securely packaged.

I am yet a novice turner, but I really enjoy the Galaxy, and have zero complaints.
