    Chassis Lifting Guidelines

    The weight of a fully configured chassis is about 220 lb (100 kg). Observe these guidelines for lifting and moving the services gateway:

    • Before moving the services gateway, check the Site Preparation Checklist to verify that the intended site meets the specified power, environmental, and clearance requirements.
    • Do not attempt to lift a fully configured services gateway by yourself. Using a mechanical lift to maneuver the services gateway into a rack is recommended. If a lift cannot be used, a minimum of three people are required to lift the services gateway, and you must remove components from the chassis before lifting.
    • Before lifting or moving the services gateway, disconnect all external cables.
    • 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.
