The empty chassis weighs approximately 65.5 lb (29.7 kg).
Position the chassis in front of the rack or cabinet,
centering it in front of the mounting shelf. Use a pallet jack if
one is available.
With one person on each side, hold onto the bottom of the chassis and carefully lift it onto the mounting shelf.
To prevent injury, keep your back straight and lift with your

Install a mounting screw into each of the open mounting
holes aligned with the rack, starting from the bottom.
the alignment of the chassis. If the chassis is installed properly
in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack should
be aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side and the chassis
should be level.
