Quoting:

" Weighing 3,400 kilograms (7,500) pounds) this main landing gear is one of the largest in commercial service. This particular gear was removed from an A330 that made a successful forced landing in 2001. "

 

Do 3400x2 that would equal to ~7000tons (or 15000lbs). so 7 tons is your answer :)

And the nose gear? :)

 

Snap, forgot that aircraft have no gears :D

I think it  was mentioned A350 design video that nose weight weight is under 2 tons. So i'd assume A330 is around there.

 

So to correct my math, it say all together @Ausflight you're looking @ around ~8.5 - 10tons for the whole under carriage.
