I'm planning on moving an Onyx rack in the next two weeks and I'm probably
going to have to be fairly agricultural with my tooling - pickup truck and
flatbed trailer, no lift gate, no lovely enclosed box.
I'm thinking that to safely transport this I'll tip it on its back and lay
it flat on some 2x4s onto the flatbed trailer, but I'd love any advice
from listers who have moved one, or better yet, who have one and can tell
me things like - how solid is the frame (after removal of the plastic
skins)? Is it top heavy? Bottom heavy? (I'm guessing after removal of
PSUs, top heavy, but unsure)
Anything would be much appreciated.
I found the below:
Which gives a nice picture of a unit with open doors, but it's hard to
tell how solid the frame rails are. The thing looks awfully deep to be a
standard 19" rack, so I'm guessing it's custom, but... having never seen
Many thanks for your time,
