Installing a MX2020 Router Using a Pallet Jack Overview

Because of the MX2020 router’s size and weight—1,515 lb (687.19 kg) depending on the configuration—we strongly recommend that you install the router using a pallet jack with pallet jack attachment.


Juniper Networks offers a router transport kit to install the router (see Installing the MX2020 Router Using a Router Transport Kit).

  1. Verify that the mounting hardware has been installed.
