    That looks to be a WF 6x15 beam a 6 ft long piece would be 90lbs. or since this is probably not in the USA call it a 152x152 x23KG universal column and is probably 2 meters in length 46 KG or 101.4 lbs The feat here is not the act of carrying the beam as much as the spindly ladder supporting the weight

    Looks like an H-beam to me & I'll bet it weighs more than 90#. The flanges look about 3/8" & the web at least a 1/4 if not 3/8" also. You are very right about the ladder, I thought it was going to collapse.

    You could be correct the flanges do look thicker than the web if so it could either be the W6x20 or W6x25 The universal column near equivalent would be called 152x152x30 or x35 their weights are figured by the meter A 2 meter length would be a little over 6ft 6inchs 60 kg 132 lb 70kg 154 lb and that guy weighs a good 70 kg with either weight I feel sorry for the poor ladder

    I'd have bet donuts to dollars he would drop that thing or the ladder would collapse... Color me impressed!
