What is the approximate weight of a holed hydraulic elevator with a 2500 pound weight capacity from the early 70's?

Rule of thumb --
Live weight = Dead weight
Accordingly, 2500# capacity plus 2500# Dead weight, Total = 5000#
A pressure reading would more accurately determine the weight, which may be shown on the crosshead data tag.
