    thought of that too.

    Last engine hoist I "built" (Cobbled together) was good, but not sure I'd trust it one with a Juniper

    Not to hold the weight of it whilst we install it into the rack anyway, for lifting though it'd be fine!

    You'd trust Sixth Formers with an MX960?!

    Look into the lifts air-conditioning engineers use. They're basically server lifts without the stupid IT markup.

    i.e: 2112 Contractor Lift - 12'/650 lbs - Galvanized

    Can you not get some ratchet straps around it with some padding to give you some purchase on it?

    thought about something along those lines... don't like the thought of it. Too many bits too break. Theres no where really except from the bottom to the top to put the straps. Need to lift IT to get the straps under .

    Im awaiting on some pricing anyway for A lift so hopefully it's cheap!!!

    Maybe a block of c4 to get it off the ground and some kind of catching net in the rack to revive it

    If you empty them of linecards, PSU and dataplanes they're normally not too bad to lift for two people. I know when I had 2 EX8208's installed we only had 2 guys to install it!

    i know my data center and some of my former collegues have used or rented a serverlift before. the one i used was the sl-500x which can lift 500lbs. i don't know if i am late to respond back or if you already purchased a lift, but last time i checked my email at work, they were offering a promotion on their lifts to get 5% off.
