    Dell 42U rack available FOC

    Firstly, sorry if this is an inappropriate place for this - please advise if you think it should go elsewhere (other forum or other site).

    All being well, I should have a Dell 42U 7' server rack available (full enclosure with side panels and front/rear lockable doors). It is located in North Norwich and is available free of charge to a good home.

    The new owner will probably need to collect it, although it will probably fit in a small van (Astra/Escort) with the doors open! At a push I may even be able to arrange (local) delivery for you. It's in excellent condition and I might be able to find a few blanking plates etc., if required.

    If anybody is interested, please reply as soon as possible, as the present keeper wants to free up some space quickly! I have also "advertised" this elsewhere, so please don't be disappointed if it goes quickly. Thanks for your time.

    Cheers
    James

    Re: Dell 42U rack available FOC

    I believe that although the external panels can be removed, the internal frame is welded at the corners. And I also seem to remember some advice about not dismantling racks if possible as they are factory aligned and if pulled about too much can be a sod to get true again.

    But regardless of the overall size of the thing, it also weighs A LOT! I think it's about 200kg in total, and when new was specially mounted on a pallet for carriage, so using any sort of carrier to transport it is not really an option.

    Or maybe they could just use a van? I think I did make this clear...

    Sorry to appear sarcastic, but I am offering it for free. I'm not sure what more I can offer? :?

    Sorry TeddyKGB if I misinterpreted your post. Perhaps a smiley might have indicated the tone better? It would be good if you could just beam it over though - I don't suppose you have access to any stolen alien teleportation technology, do you?
