I just removed them myself and weighed everything:

Bottom and side cushions: 7499 g (16.52 lbs)
Bolts: 57 g (.13 lbs)
Right Back Rest: 4630 g (10.20 lbs)
Left Back Rest: ~16.5 lbs (this one was probably off a little since I couldn't use the sensitive scale)
Total: ~43 lbs

Took me exactly 15 minutes to take everything out.
