MX2020 Chassis Moving Guidelines

The fully configured chassis with the cable managers weighs up to 1,515 lb (687.19 kg), or 429.6 lb (194.86 kg) with components removed. Observe the following guidelines for moving the router:

  • Before moving the router, read the Overview of Preparing the Site for the MX2020 Router to verify that the intended site meets the specified power, environmental, and clearance requirements.

  • Do not attempt to move a fully configured router by yourself. Using a pallet jack with attachment and a four person team to maneuver the router into a rack is recommended.

  • Before moving the router, disconnect all external cables.

    To move routing devices and components, use the following guidelines:

    • 1 person to lift or move up to 39.7 lb (18.0 kg)

    • 2 people to lift or move up to 70.5 lb (32.0 kg)

    • 3 people to lift or move up to 220 lb (99.8 kg)

    • 4 people to lift or move over 300 lb (136.0 kg)

    As when moving 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.
