Semi OT: Weight of a Dell 2410 24U Rack Enclosure??? (its a 1/2 rack)
Does anyone know how heavy these things are?
^^ Above it says (link is to Dell Tech Specs manual) that the thing is 240#… Does anyone have one of these or have you worked with one of these things? Are they really 240 pounds?
I ask because I got one for free and I'm wondering if its crazy to carry on vespa. I feel comfortable probably with up to 150 pounds on the back - but more gets a little sketchy...
Pic so that you know I'm serious. (I have plenty more but you get the idea)
Thank you in advance for any feedback - its very much appreciated.
Last question - from what I read you can mount PDUs, etc. in the side panels (its wide enough supposedly) and the side covers + doors come off. If anyone with experience could please chime in and let me know how heavy the side panels are vs. the rack maybe I can break it down into two trips - panels + bare rack frame?
No idea how much that weighs but I love the picture.

Not sure I'd want to use a hard disk that had been shaken about that much.
I have an Toten 22U rack that has an glass dorr and is made of 1.2 mm SECC-steel. It weighs around 60 kgs unloaded.
HDD's always come out and either get picked up/dropped off seperately or packed in plastic and put on a backpack. Heavy but much less vibration :)
Incase someone searches and finds this later on - it really did weigh 280 lbs. I got it down to about 125 lbs by removing the side & top panels, doors and all brackets (and the batteries that were 200# each).
I'll post a picture in a few.
