RL3500S cabinet lifter

The RL3500S is a manual lift designed to lift and transport an entire, fully loaded cabinet up to 5000lbs.

With this rack mover one technician can easily move a server cabinet from one location to another.

By moving a fully loaded cabinet, your data center will save time that is normally wasted uninstalling and reinstalling devices just to relocate the cabinet.

A variety of different racks, empty or fully populated, can be lifted and moved using the RL3500S.   It can also be used to raise cabinets temporarily to access the floor below and to lift cabinets from a pallet.

It is made of lightweight 704 aluminum for enhanced durability.  This is the ideal rack mount lift tool for your data center because now a single operator can relocate data center cabinets easily and safely.


The RL3500S consists of two units working in tandem – one on each end of the server cabinet. Both units have a foot which is placed under the cabinet as a lifting platform.  The cabinet is then strapped between the two sections. The operator rotates the handle on one of the lifts to raise the cabinet slightly off the floor.  The process is repeated on the other lift until the load clears the floor.  The frictionless ball screw technology enables anyone to effortlessly lift up to 5000 pounds/ 2268 kg.

During transport the weight is evenly spread across eight dual non marking antistatic castor wheels to distribute the load on raised floors.   Once the desired position is achieved the load is lowered to the floor and the units removed.  Optional Shoe and upper Pinch Blocks for Cabinet Side or 31″/79cm cabinet widths available at time of order.
