Is it me, or does no one else remove weight (eg power supplies, disks, 
etc) from machines when they're trying to rack/move them, instead of 
trying to strain themselves?  I'm quite used to removing as much as 
necessary from machines at work when i'm left to rack them by myself 
(and they weight >80lbs or so fully loaded).

I've moved an E6500 chassis by myself before; it's a whole lot easier 
when you take everything out of it first.
