What is the average weight of a filled casket?
There are two factors involved: the weight of the casket and the weight of the deceased. Most American metallic or wooden caskets weigh between 200 and 250 lbs. According to recent health statitics, the average weight of an American adult male is close to 200 lbs, and that of an adult female close to 170 lbs. Thus the average total weight will be in the range of 400 lbs.
