RackLift™ RL5000E | 5000LB Server Rack Lifter

The RL5000E is designed to lift and move an entire, fully loaded cabinet.

With this server rack mover one technician can lift and move a fully loaded server cabinet from one location to another. The lift is accomplished with the touch of a button.

The weight is spread across eight dual castor wheels to distribute the load on raised floors. The RL5000E is used to move loaded racks from one position to another or to lift loads from a pallet. This is the ideal rack mount lift tool.

How The RL5000E Rack Lifter Works

A variety of different racks, empty or fully populated, can be lifted and moved using various rack mount lift adapters.

The RL5000E consists of two units working in tandem – one on each end of the server cabinet. Both units are placed in position and secured to the rack housing. The operator uses a simple up/down control switch to raise and lower the load.

Vertical travel is synchronized by a control cable connecting the two units. The load is raised for transport and a single operator then moves a 5,000 pound load into position easily and accurately. Once the desired position is achieved the load is lowered to the floor and the units removed. When the RL5000E is not in use it can remain on charge mode to ensure it will be ready when needed. The smart charger will not over-charge the batteries.
