Not sure about the weight, but for their size they're not especially heavy. A laminated ply case is significantly lighter than oak. Apart from that, the motor and gearbox contribute most of the weight. They do get heavy when full of coins though...

When worked on the original penny, the play on the Jezzard Mini Cascade is little short of addictive.
Mine was on 2np when I bought it, and was distinctly lack-lustre. No modifications had been made, so I simply started playing with old pennies, and the transformation was amazing.
I never liked pushers from day one, but this little machine is definitely the exception!

thank you kindly, it's perfectly sized. OK that does it, I am officially on the lookout for one of these counter-sized pushers. Mini Cascade / Mini Falls / Penny Falls / Rota-Soccer / Mini Cakewalk

There's an Aladdin's Lamp pusher on a well-known auction site now.
It's by CAM Automatics, I believe, which is one of my favourite manufacturers.
I remember it from the time, but I won't have played it much.

This certainly isn't for the smaller-sized machines, but someone posted these amazing Cromptons Penny Falls signs up on ebay:
