The chute was put into a 701 that was blown over by a thunderstorm. I bought the plane for the engine. The chute looks brand new. The gross weight in the plans that I built my 701 with says 1200 lbs. I'm not completely sure but from the BRS website it seems the weight the chute can hold is the same as its model number. You may want to check with BRS.
