Our footoperated MS200, which we make since 1992 is the actual parent, many very old ones are still in full operation.

No the MS140 has 360 degree rotation so does not need the Concorde.
The MS140 weighs 6,7 kg and the ML100-TH 17 kg.
The difference in weight is in the lever, weight and heavy turntable.
Technatic, gotta love the personalization I'm seeing in that photo. Custom made base legs with casters added.
