The specimen in the photo was about 40 pounds, if I recall correctly. Most of the other fruits were in the 20-pound range - still pretty good for a squash. Another yera, I grew a variety called 'Mammoth.' They were a gorgeous deep orange in color, and were supposed to weigh 20-30 lbs; my largest weighed 78! Unfortunately, I cannot locate a photo of it right now.
