leg of the truss (on the floor)

The only way to get an approximate weight of those two vertical trusses would be to add hoists to the corner junctions and calculate. The calculation would estimate the selected system and NOT give you accurate deflection calculations for the corner blocks relating to the gear hung on the horizontal spans. Engineers would do their structural analysis of the overall system once you give them the lists of gear placed on the system. Braceworks reports are a great place to start the conversation with structural engineers, who always have the final say.
