Hmm, looks like a vertical mount version of a Dec TU-80 tapedrive.
I've got 2 of them, very nice units.
It should be a CDC drive. When looking at picture #4, it looks like
it is using a PERTEC type interface, not a SCSI type interface.
Are you sure it was connected using a SCSI interface?
BTW, weight is about 35Kg / 80 Lbs.
