Let’s begin this discussion with how not to move a populated server rack. A common method is to power down, remove all the connections then tediously uninstall every server. Lift them out individually with a RackLift™ 600RS, relocate the empty cabinet then reverse the process to reinstall and reconnect every device. That’s a lot of time, energy and risk.
RackLift has answered the question of “How to move an entire rack of servers” with introduction of the electric RL5000E or the manual RL3000. The battery powered RL5000E can lift and move an entire, populated server rack weighing up to 5,000 pounds/ 2268 kg. One technician can now move intact server racks from one location to another with the touch of a button. It saves time, money and reduces risks. That’s how to move a server rack of equipment the modern way. Many of our customers use RackLift to move populated server racks right off a pallet since the cabinet can be raised 11 inches/ 28 cm from the floor.
