    Its not a server

    Its A Juniper MX960

    How to Install Juniper Network Devices in a Rack - For Dummies
    MX960 Universal Edge Router - Data Center Router - Juniper Networks
    MX960 Rack Requirements - Technical Documentation - Support - Juniper Networks

    T'is a heavy beast, thus rendering me needing a serverlift.

    And YES she is 25 stone!!

    "fully configured router, up to 350 lb (158.76 kg)"

    ours is fully configured and integrated just need to lift it to get it into a rack!!!

    We have previously installed an IBM PureFlex chassis weighing it at a mere 224kg but this had proper handles and was a fairly easy install, the MX960 has 2 at the top and they hurt like hell when you try to lift it, and it is a dead weight!

    You need a cheap lift, while fitting a MX960? I wouldn't want to drop it

    that might be a viable option, I will take a look!

    I wonder if I could get the bottom of the lift under our Rack, that way we can put the MX960 in place so we can get it screwed into the rack.

    Yes, Yes it is!!

    I will look at HSS It might have the clearance to get the feet / legs under the rack.

    Definately a fun day coming up putting two of theese buggers into a rack!!

    Well being an ex-mechanic that was my first thought

    Dont think I'd fully trust a hoist as such, a lift would be fine but these things are expensive and wouldnt want to drop it using a hoist... It'd be a picture though if you went back through our CCTV and saw us getting it off the van!

    Someone didn't do a proper risk assessment then?

    well we didn't think it'd be that heavy, we managed to put the IBM in fine (2245kg so heavier) and we assumed because the Juniper is lighter, that we'd be able to get that in also but that isn't the case evidently.

    I think it's because of the way you have to lift the Juniper, with the IBM it's a man stood either side with the heavy duty handles attached with the Juniper this isnt the case as there are no handles as such!!
