    MX104 Router Chassis Lifting Guidelines

    For physical specifications, see MX104 Router Physical Specifications. Observe the following guidelines for lifting and moving the router:

    • Before moving the router, read the guidelines in Preparing the Site for the MX104 Router Overview to verify that the intended site meets the specified power, environmental, and clearance requirements.
    • Before lifting or moving the router, disconnect all external cables.

      To lift routing devices and components, use the following lifting guidelines:

      • Up to 39.7 lbs (18 kg), one person lifts.
      • 39.7 lbs (18 kg) to 70.5 lbs (32 kg), two or more persons lift.
      • 70.5 lbs (32 kg) to 121.2 lbs (55 kg), three or more persons lift.
      • Above 121.2 lbs (55 kg), material-handling systems (such as levers, slings, lifts and so on) must be used. When this is not practical, specially trained persons or systems must be used (riggers or movers).
    • As when lifting any heavy object, lift most of the weight with your legs rather than your back. Keep your knees bent and your back relatively straight and avoid twisting your body as you lift. Balance the load evenly and be sure that your footing is solid.
