As these heads get regularly changed less weight makes them easier to handle. The genuine one at 280kg is so unwieldy that we had to use the machine to line the bolt holes up. My others a about 70kg can easily be manhandled that last mm and if something does go wrong I don't think even steel toe caps will be any good if 280kg fell on them. It also makes the centre of gravity a lot higher which isn't good on the trailer.
