The kit includes a genuine E3D-Lite6 hotend and its specs can be found here: http://e3d-online.com/Lite6 . If you are interested in higher temperatures please contact us and we can discuss an upgrade to a E3D-v6.
Please verify on https://postcalc.usps.com/default.aspx with 26 pounds and 34x6x16 inches. I have been surprised at how randomly expensive it can be as well. If you know of a better solution for your country please let me know.
